Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Power Failure! Help!

My ps2 won't turn on properly. It was working fine last week, but when i went to turn it on this morning, it didn't work. The red light is on when i plug it in, so i know there's nothing wrong with the BRAND NEW ac adapter i just bought. But when i push the power button, the green light goes on for about a second, and then goes back to red. I'm getting very frustrated and now i'm out $21.96 for the new ac adapter, not to mention the $80 for the system itself. It's only a few months old, this shouldn't be happening. Please help me.

I had the exact same problem with mine. It may be a combo of one or two events: First if the console is no longer under warranty CAREFULLY take it apart by removing the screws on the under side and check to make sure that your power button is not damaged or that the ribbon cable is not loose. @nd: check the rear of the console to see if the ac adaptor is pushed in all the way and check to see if the female end is not losse.If the female part is loose the easiest way to fix that is to 1st find out what position the cord must be in for it to stay on and then put the ps2 on top of your tv or someplace where the unit will not be bumped. then use something the hold the cord in that particular position.
If the unit is still under warranty do yourself a favor and send it back to Sony and get them to fix it.
Hope this helps

Your power supply is not giving enough power to the unit. Get a new power supply and you will be fine.

Two left red lights


The two red lights is usually over heating. Make sure it has good ventilation and that the fan is working in the back. Let it cool down for a couple hours and try it again

My Slim Ps2 crashed!!


hi is your ps2 the one where the lid lifts up to put the disk in if so their can sometimes be a problem with switch on the lid when you press the button to load the game push down on the lid and hold it down and if this is the problem then the game will load.
My ps2 has this problem and i have to put books or bottle of somekind on the lid to keep the lid pressed down far enough so that the switch works and loads the game.

Also you could try cleaning the laser lense you can buy a lense cleaning disk and that will clean it for you and if thats the problem as moving it might have caused the dust to move inside a bit affecting the laser have a go at these ideas then get back to me ok

Red Light


Are you pressing and holding the button and does the system still power on and off alright? If the system still works properly then it isnt a huge concern. If it wont power on or off then do an exchange at Wal-Mart.

Disk wont spin


Your, dvd playing in your ps2, may be malfunctioning, your best bet is buying a ps2 dvd player, taking the old one out, and putting the new one in, and I guarantee that that will help you continue on your massive killing rampage on vice city.
