Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

PS2 slim on component video showing green screen.

It was working fine but when I unplugged it all and moved it to the side for a few days, nowhere near anything that could possibly damage it, and then plugged it all back in using component video like before.. It seems the green signal is coming through a lot stronger than the others. I've checked all the plugs removed them put them back in, and in different orders. Sure hope I don't have to play all my games in green from now on..

    Well I found my basic AV cable, the yellow white and red RCA one, seems to work fine but that doesn't tell me if it's the cable or the tv, though I'm assuming the tv because the cable is still a really high quality cable. I'll play like this until I can trade my tv, or at least try the ps2 on another tv, thanks.

Try to change cable sometimes can happen.Troubleshooting the issue is the best you can do.
Unplug the connector and use another one or since ps2 is a common machine bring over one of your friend and try to find out what`s happened.Can be your tv as well...that`s why i`m telling you the best way is to ask your friend to use the tv and the cable to make sure nothing is wrong with your machine

Turn on the console while pressing START on the joystick 1, wait 10 seconds, release START then reset the console. If nothing appears on the screen, the console is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the console starts, replace the Modchip.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

PS2 Slim will not play


hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

Many Problems regarding PS2 Slim


Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
