You have few options. If you know how to take the PS2 apart there should be a small fuse on the computer board you can change. If you fell at all uncomfortable about doing the first spend the money to get it fixed, ther should be a list of repair center @ http://www.us.playstation.com/ . Lastly purchase a new one at Best Buy or Curcuit City and get the warrenty.

My mad catz dual force ps2 controller wont work


you will need a dual shock 2 ps2 controller. The mad catz controller is probably a dual shock 1 controller. Some games require the dual shock 2. It should say on the back of the game if the dual shock 2 is required. If it says something along the lines of "pressure sensitivity" or "pressure sensitive" on the back of the game case (where it says "1 player" or "2 player") ... then you will need a dual shock 2 controller. If this is not the case and it only says "analog controller" and "vibration" then you won't need the dual shock 2 controller. If the controller doesn't work for any games or even on the console main screen, then it must be the controller that is broken. Try turning the system on without a game in it and see if the controller works. Hope this helped :-)

PS2 - when my son went to turn on the console he shocked it (static) and now it won't turn on. Is there anyway to reset it?


i dont know that much about playstation but shock on a small system like that can fry it but if you unplug everything from the system for a day and plug it back in to try it this might work. Or you can get him a PS3 for christmas if you get the first version of the PS3 it can play PS2 games so you dont waste his games.

When you experienced that shock you may have inadvertenly sent an electro static discharge to the circuitry inside the ps2 which would cause it to stop working.
 If it is fairly new return it to the store you purchased it let them know whar happened and usually they will exchange the item for you.
