Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Help. I accidently plugged my 18.5v laptop power cable into my PS2 slim. It wouldn't switch on and I smelt burning. I unplugged it and realized my mistake. The light now stays red and switches green for a couple of seconds when pressed and the disk drive starts moving before the light goes red again. I've looked inside but can't see any damage. Is this repairable?

It can be repaired only by replacing the power pcb module if it is not directly merged with mother board. when you gave 18.5 V DC supply at that time it must have shorted the resistors. since the components are very small hence that pcb cannot be replaced but it can be replaced.

1. unplug the PS2
2. wait for 1 minute
3. plug in PS2

PS2 Slim - Power Issue


It could be the power cord, but it could also be the connection where the cable connects to the system. The cheapest fix would be to try a new power cord. If it's the slim PS2 then it's only about a $15 fix. If it's the large older PS2, then it's more like a $5 fix for a cord.
blingbdog, do you have the slim or the old large system? Also, let me know if the warranty is still valid (have you had the console for more than 1 year).
