Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 only getting a red light - not powering on

We moved and have not used our PS2 in months (it is a little over a year old and was never used much). We just tried to hook it back up for the first time today and power comes to the console but the red light is the only light that comes on. We used the same connectors to try our old PS one and it works just fine. The color never changes on the PS2 and the disk doesn't spin. Do you have any suggestions?

    Sorry, I guess I should have clarified on that. It is a PS2 Slim. I don't know if something got knocked loose during the move, but I doubt it bc it was moved very carefully. Not sure why it isn't working. Drives me nuts that I spent the money on a brand new system to barely ever use it, and now I can only get a red light (never ever turns green) and doesn't spin. It is a 7000 model. Do you have any ideas?

Is the system fat or slim?
If its fat then it is the internal power supply.
a 12$ total fix from parts via ebay takes 10-15 min to take apart and re-assemble. I can help you step by step let me know.

The red standby light is on but it wont turn all the way on and show the green light


odd problem you have there

how old is your PS2? the power button might be starting to go if its anything older then 3-5 yrs, when did you buy it and how often do you use it?

also

are you holding the button when you press it? if yes then thats the problem, it only needs a single press, otherwise it just turns itself off again after 1 second of holding it

tell us how you go

Ps2 slim line


if the laser is moved to the middle of the area and when you first turn it on it doesn't go back to starting possession's then some thing is wrong with the motor drive more than not it's likely you have a crack in the board.

PS2 not staying on


It's either a faulty power-pack (the boxy thing that is between the unit and the wall) or it's in the unit itself. If you know someone else who has one see if you can borrow their power-pack and try your unit on it. If the problem persists with the other AC unit then it is on the motherboard and will be likely unrepairable.
