This depends on what type of PS2 it is.Original or Slimline. If its the original, No I don't believe it will hurt it at all. I lost my powercord for my PS2, and saw that the one for my PS2, and my Cd player/stereo was nearly the same, but didn't have the same end on it. So I cut it to fit the hole (Warranty Void there I'm sure) and sure enough it worked. I was even able to use it on my stereo still. If thats the case, please be careful when cutting if you go that route. If you have a camera, or an camera-enabled phone, maybe you could take a pic. for us to see the cord. If it's the Slimline version though, and your talking about the cord that plugs directly into the PS2, then yes there's a good chance of it damaging it

We think there is something wrong with the video and audio plugs, that go into the tv. But were still not sure. The playstation does turn on we can hear it. But it will not appear on the tv. When I say we...

Hello, To test what the problem is, I would recommend finding a friends whole also has a PlayStation 2. Offer good company and maybe lunch to bring his/ hers PlayStation 2 over. I would then attempt to plug in the friends PlayStation 2 into your TV and attempt to play a game, If It does work then you know the problem lies in your personal PlayStation, If it does not work then the problem could lie within the TV's internals, Possible the component connections. Assuming the game does play on your Tv, I would recommend using some tape to mark your friends cords, console and power supply (don't want to mix them up) and then start by using your friends Cords one at a time to see if you can get your console working properly. Probable can skip the power supply because you mentioned you can hear the driver start.

Best Wishes and Good luck!!!

I get a red light on my powerpack

i think that means that the connection between the power brick and the xbox isnt working, either your xbox needs repair or you need a new power brick, ask a friend with a 360 if you can borrow theirs and also their wires for the powerbrick and if it works then YOU need a new powerbrick and if it doesnt then your xbox is broken

PS2 not working ..... Help

On the back there is some plates. Take off 6 (i know there are 8 but 2 of them aren't worth the trouble, theyr'e the corner ones close to the front) then pull of the top. Pretend the top is still on. There should be chip right behind the power button. If there is one push the white button and hold down the black lever on the top. If there isn't a chip you have to order one from sony.

It won't Power On at all, all wires hooked up to it.

try to hold down the power buttin for about 45 seconds, if nothing happens, after ensuring all the cables are properly connected and everything is plugged in, I would suggest taking it back to the store you bought it at so you can exchange it for a new one.
