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.

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.

For PS2 "The Dualshock 2 Analog Controller is not detected." What should be done to fix this? Mom with 3 kids home from school! Help!


This could be the PS2 console. You need to try a different Dual Shock controller to determine if the problem is the controller itself or the ports on the Playstation. The normal problem here is a dirty connector on the Playstation. Clean the connector or you may need to check the Fuses inside the Playstation. This requires specialized skillls.
I have seen where Dogs have chewed the cable running from a controller, and caused the problem.

PS 2 shocked me when I was turning it off. Now it won't turn on.


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.

My PS2 wont turn on


might have fractured the power supply board, look on ebay for replacement, but most likely the whole console is no good as g-shock is not good for ps2 or laser eyes.
