Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I have slimline ps2 I inadvertantly shocked the power switch with static elec. now it wont turn on (green light) just stay's red ? Help Please
Hi this is a big problem unless you have multimeter and know how to use one.
Right the problem is going to be a blown resistor somewhere after the power input on the board as your getting power this tell us their is no problem at the power source.
The problem is going to be after this but before the laser gets its power. It would be impossible to locate without multimeter and knowing how use one. the parts if doing repair yourself would be really cheap but paying someone would cost more than a new ps2.
The best thing i would do if it was me is buy a second hand one from well known auction site (sorry cant give names as i would be adverting but its got 4 letter starts with e and ends with y)
You can buy a slim ps2 with disk read error for less than £10 or $15 then if your laser was working with no problems then it would take few minutes to swap these. Then you have it working again.
I got one last week for £3 it cost me more in p&p but they said disk read error so i took case off blew all the dust out then tried it and im still using it now.
If you have multimeter and know how to use it then ill give you a link on how to take it apart but dont try if you dont know how to use multimeter or dont know how to tes resistors.
Replacing the laser anyone can do its couple of screws and push in connector for the wires let me know what you want to do
