    does it pop the fuse when you turn it on or when you plug it in?

The problem is in the actual power supply itself. You need to replace it.

Go Here:

Follow the instructions and see which version you have and order a new one. If you have already changed the fuse then you should know how to access this by now. Just intall the new one and you'll be fine

Only reason i could figure out why it would be blowing fuses is that the circut you have your ps2 on is drawing to much power and the fuse can not handle thepower output see what you have plug in to that fuse look around your house see what eles turn off when the fuse blows and try to unplug one or more of them when you turn on your ps2

    the only reason the fuse inside the ps2 would blow would be a power serge or the plug your plugging it into is faulty change out the outlet in the wall best thing i can tell you this should work

Connection problem

ok, first check all your vents on the ps2... are they clogged up with dust? get a can of compressed air,(available at any tech shop and even walmart) and blow them out. it sounds to me like ur ps2 is overheating.. pay close attention to the fan also is it coming on when u power up? is it only happening when u play guitar hero? keep me posted i will help in any way i can :) melissa

PS2 Slimline no longer works

You might have burned a fuse if the other adaptor put more power in it, thats quite bad.
If your handy with electronic things you should be able to open it, check the fuse which you can buy at an electronics store and replace it.
If your not very handy get one of your friends to check it out or get it done somewhere.

Hope this helped.

My ps2 is broken the video and auto is not working


Please give some more detail as to what is wrong. I have never heard of Auto. Sometimes the A/Vconnector on the back of the PS2 gets contaminated. You can try cleaning that.

To Arpi > PS2 U.S.A. version (110 volts) SCPH-39001 charged to 220 volts - is it burnt already?

This would have damaged the power supply, most likely not harming any other parts. Fuses do not smell when they blow so something else was damaged. I would suggest looking for a similar revision that has a blown laser or other trouble and use the power supply from that.
