I've find a solution to this

a blown display chip is the culprit

as for my case the m,odel is SCPH 30000 (version 4 with gap)

I replaced the BA5815FM chip and now it works fine

i hope this will help

Try this

you problem is that your picture cable is not connected properley.see the cable next to the power cable.now push it in .now turn it on.if it still does not work try pushing that cable in while the ps2 is on.if that doesnt workcheck the colour of the cable.it must be white in white and yellow in yellow or yellow in red for different tvs. if that doesnt work the person you bought it off rippped you off.

if not i'll be doing more research ok.

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.

Ps2 slim will not power up


usually, there is a problem with a ribbon cable of power/reset switch. Try using a replacement ribbon of the same type.

PS2 slim Power Problem - Light is red goes green but nothing else.


Hi Leostg,

 

I have seen this a couple of times.  Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor.   Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55.  If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard.  Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay  for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim.  This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.

Please give me a Solved vote. I believe you only get one vote and its locked.   I have put a lot into your solution and hope you will show appreciation by voting solved.
