Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
My PS2 slim cannot start or boot up, when I plugged it in the red light turns on and as I press the power button it turns to green but does not boot up, even the fan or lens does not move or operate.

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.
