I took my PS2 Slim apart to clean it out, put it back together and now there is no power getting to it. It was working fine before and I have taken it apart numerous times before for cleaning. I have replaced the power button with no luck. What do I check now?

Re: PS2 Power problem
Check the power supply.Use a multimeter if you have any voltage coming out from the power supply.
If the power supply is good Check the main fuse on the motherboard.There is a white ceramic fuse on the motherboard and sometimes get Bad.

Hi, this happened to me once. What i did was remove the top cover of the ps2, carefully removed the power button from the cover, i removed the cover from the lens and i carefully cleaned it manually with a cloth... then put it together just like you took it apart, worked great for me
be sure that the wire that connects to the power buttons are property installed, also to the playstation, , be really careful.. also what you can do is just give them a small push to both of them to make sure they are getting a connection
your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay
hi there there are loads of videos on you tube that shows you how to put this back together make sure you look up the right ps2 ie ps2 or ps2 slim they both open and come apart completely different
hope this helps ya a little
Since you have the bid Phat mode; you will have better luck at fixing your PS2.
This is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
Remove all the screws.
Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
Remove the CD tray lid.
Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you still have trouble reading discs. Click on " Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next page click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a Repair shop to get your PS2 repaired. Fixya has some good ones dedicated to Playstations.
