No power on my ps2

Ok this is a classic bad power supply! There could be 2 solutions to this! 1 a new power supply or a new 50 cent fuse!

If you are willing to tear it apart ... but that is if this is a fat ps2.. If it is let me know and we can get cracking!

PS2 Green LED remains on, system won't turn on

have you tried holding down the reset button to turn off your console. Months before I bought my Ps2 I noticed my friends turning off their PS2's using the switch on the back. When i bought mine , months later i was invited to a friends house and noticed when he turned off his ps2 by holding the reset button down for a few seconds. After playing on their trampoline i went home and tried this reset button thing and it worked. Although i had the fat bulky ps2 this trick also works on slimline models too. This should solve your problem. The switch on the back i later found out was for when you wanted to turn off your ps2 during a thunderstorm.

THE VIBRATION OF MY PS2

If your ps2 controllers aren't vibrating anymore then this could be the fix that you were waiting for.

WARNING: Make sure that 1) Its not your controller that is broken, test it in a machine that does have vibration. 2) Make sure that the vibration option is turned ON in your games

If you are sure that your controllers aren't broken, then you may have blown a fuse inside your ps2 on your mainboard.

To fix it you have to remove a blown fuse from the ps2 mainboard and either put a new fuse there or replace it with a piece of single strand wire. The point is fairly small so you need a fine tip soldering iron and a single strand of wire. It may be best to get someone who is good at soldering to do this fix for you:

I take no responsibility for anyone breaking their ps2 when performing this fix. All I know is that i've done it and it worked a treat!

You will need;

1) A fine tip soldering iron and some thin solder.
2) A single strand piece of wire, something thin like kynar or enameled wire.
3) A game with vibration function to test the ps2 afterwards.
4) A controller that works with vibration.

Between the power supply connector and the PS9 fuse there is a small black square with 2 silver prongs on the left hand side. This featured on my mainboard as well, and I was able to locate the correct / broken fuse using a multimeter. Look for a fuse with S7 on the top near here, and check for continuity, If there is none then thats the one! One last thing before it goes into full detail;

Check the track between the black square with the silver prongs and the broken fuse, if its on the same track then you can attatch one end of the wire to that prong that is on the same track, and the other side to the end of the fuse opposite of the black square with silver prongs *

This will take bout 10 mins to do - start to finish.

Below tells you how to do it



Below is a description on where and what to look for i.e. the fuse, and how to repair it.

1. I have a V5 PS2

2. Take the PS2 apart.

3. Remove the Power Supply motherboard.

4. After removing the Power Supply Board, you will need to remove the metal shroud and expose the entire PS2 Motherboard.

5. Once you have done this look around the connector for the Power supply board on the PS2 mother board. You will see a number (maybe around 4 of them all located within 2 inches of the Power supply connector) of fuses with "S7" written on it.

6. The one you are looking for has the text "PS9" written on the motherboard next to it.

7. Check it with a multi-meter, for continuity, there will none. If you are not sure, you can check all of them, when the buzzing on multi-meter stops, that's the one.

8. To repair it, use a strand of wire, possibly from an old extension cable or something, but only one strand. Solder it on both sides of the fuse in order to close the connection.

9. Reassemble the PS2.

10. Boot up and play your game, vibration is back.

Hope This Helps

PS2 wont play DVD movies!

Hi. It seems that you might have an old version of the PS2.

The original PS2's had a problem with the laser that read CDs and DVDs, often failing, creating problems with reading DVDs and in rare cases, CDs.

Unfortunately, the class action lawsuit filed against Sony is too old to get yours fixed for free, but there are ways to attempt to fix the laser yourself, if you would rather not send it in to Sony.

http://www.eurasia.nu/wiki/index.php?pagename=Ps2LaserAdjustmentAndReplacementGuide

If you have any other questions, respond and I'll help you the best I can.

Good Luck!

No longer works. Red light keeps blinking.

Here are a few troubleshooting tips to try: 1) Check all cooling vents for blockage (dirt/hair/debris) 2) Are cooling fans running? 3) Is there enough space between cooling vents and surrounding objects Ensuring your PS2 is cleaned regularly is vital to its survival. As with computers and consoles alike, the cleaner they are, the cooler they run, the faster and more responsive they are.
