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

Hi,

 

My PS2 slim has power and it shows a red light.  I hit the power button and it turns green but nothing else happens.  No disc spinning or laser movement.  Any ideas on what problem might be.

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.

PS2 Problem


For the sony fat, try adjusting the housing which depending on the model will have 1 or 2 cogs that adjust the height of the laser and housing, there is also 2 adjustments on the laser itself for the power it sends through to the laser, one is for DVD and the the other is for gaming, only tweak these a little at a time.

The slim problem is a possible right off, depending if any work has been done to it previously, usually that is a repair gone wrong were a piece of solder is earthing out and short circuiting which can be fix otherwise if not the motherboard is defective.

Can either be the power button(pretty common issue or a loose connector).Depend what kind of machine you have .PS2 have a common denominator...but actually the machine are different each other.The FAT one and the Slim one are totally different

Ps2 not spinning and light turning green then back to red


Hi

Your PS2 is probably experiencing a short circuit on the motherboard or the Emotion Engine is burned up. Sometimes the fan goes dead and the PS2 overheats and shuts down showing the red light. You can open the PS2 and clean up the motherboard and maybe it will recover.
