Yesterday when I turned off the Playstation 2 console I was shocked (like when you walk across the room and shock someone) when I touched the power button. This morning the unit will not turn on. The redlight is still on but nothing happens when I try to turn it on. I it possible that when I was shocked smething got "fried"?
Thanks in advance for your help!
It is possible, unfortunately. I would unplug it completely, for a while, and then try again. And then try to get one for free on your local freecycle or craigslist, as it is probably out of warrantee (but check and make sure, if it is in warranteee, sony should replace it).

If your playstation shocked you then please immediately unplug it and have it looked at by a qualified service technician or simply replace it. When an electronic device malfunctions to the point its discharging electricity it becomes not only a shock hazard (which can be quite unhealthy) it also becomes a fire hazard which can present a danger to you and your family.
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.
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.
