Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Green light won't go on

My PS2 is less than a year old. The green light won't come on. I have checked all the connections. Even unplugged and re-connected everything. Any suggestions? Also, the only games my kids have messed up are mine. Any suggestions on how to get scratches off the disk?

The green light on my prince lionheart warmer won't stop blinking

I realize the original question is 2 1/2 years old but for future answer searchers... the flashing light means your power cord is no longer working.

My mouse on my compaq laptop will not work i have tryed to turn it on and of by the button above but it will not work it's not even changing colours when i press it like it use to when u would turn the...

NO PC stated (wow1)
NO OS stated, XP, vista,w6/8/10? wow 2.
that is a relic PS2, mouse, nobody use those now, and PS2 parts are unique to the makers, eg: HP mouse fits only HP PC.
so.... how can I answer lacking all facts above missing.
why not buy a USB mouse and end the PS2 ERA.
end it. go to goodwill store, buy used mouse USB for $1?

next time tell what PC is there, it has name and model.
then buy real mouse. USB, not PS2.
my 2nd guess
is you do not own any such mouse,
in fact the numbers 143315-B21 , are not on the bottom of your mouse at all and posted to the wrong form.
best is to post at HP, or at least post to your PCs name and model form
mice come in many formos
  1. 9pin serial (super relics) D-shell shape conn.
  2. PS2 HP , or Compaq) green plug, year 2000 junk.
  3. USB (sold in all stores, even walfart has em)
  4. USB + wifi , wireless mice. (dead batteries?)

in each case the PC has model and so does the mouse.
only that matters first, then why it fails 2nd.

143315-B21 (this mouse is 18 years old now)
used back in the days of Compaq EN series Deskpro's 2000 year.
Pentium III era.
if that is your PC and is internet connected? are you?
that old PC has 2 USB ports, and any USB mouse works there.
and upgrade from nasty old PS2, green end plug mice.

next time post to your PCs, name (HP) and model.
like this,
here is one example of posting the EN series PC

Absolutely no electrical power tried to jump start thought it might be battery that did not work wont even crank over no dome lights nothing

Are your cable connections clean ? in the meaning of is there visable green corossion on the battery post? Some time if there is after you clean them good the green stuff grows done into the cables a inch or two,this will stop a good connection. Check your connection at the starter also the green stuff will grow there also,,Check your ground Blk cable also make sure they are tight and clean. and yes this green build up will stop a jump too.And it will eventually make your battery go bad because it will stop it from receiveing a charge from altenator
.Lets say your cables are clean as a whistle,Your battery can go out just like that if its over 3 or 4 years old.Iv had it happen to me on a car that was only 4 years old.

My monitor is lass that 1 year old and I have seen it progressively get worse in the past two weeks. First the power light, solid green, would not shut off when I pressed the button. Then, the monitor...

if your monitor is less than i year old and was bought new it should still have warranty you should take it back to the place of purchase or contact them first telling them of the problem or check your computer by using another monitor or

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

PS2 No Green Light

Maybe it has something to do with your power supply, try replacing it with a different one.

Green flashing light - no picture

If the green power light is blinking and you have no picture, then your light bulb has burned out and needs to be replaced. It is not a cheap bulb to replace. If the TV is less than 1 year old it should be covered by the warranty
