My ps2 doesnt show anything on screen!!

I had a problem on soldering point on a v4 motherboard and my ps2 didnt show anything on screen, but it did turn on. So I changed the motherboard for one exactly the same as the other one, but without chip and workin, and the problem continued!! The ps2 does turn on, you can hear the fan, and the disc tray can be opened and closed, but it doesnt show anything at screen, not even the playstation screen. Whats wrong?!

The ps2 works fine, but when i try to play a game, it doesnt sense the cd. it doesnt even spin. anything i could do?

barely put any oil where the spinner and ps2 are connected on the top, but clean the oil off. if that doesnt work your motherboard might have chipped at where the spinner usually spins at.

There is no video output anymore for my PS2. It was working just fine but now it is not. It stopped working while I was changing a game. I can not figure it out.

if the blue button does not light, its blown ps11, betchya, if they both light up, its likely something bridged on the bios chip. I have fixed lots of these (cause in the early days of the days I modded, I managed EVERY possible way to screw up a ps2, and had to learn how to fix it), but I wont even tell you to do that, its brutal, and requires straight up balls to do right. You have to DROWN ALL the legs on the chip in molten solder, then solder soaker (de-soldering braid) it all up at once, and FAST so you dont burn it all up, need a soldering GUN, as opposed to an iron, to insure that any solderballs and bridges behind the legs get sucked up and out.
Its a 50-50 thing, but its better than a black screen, so you have nothing to loose trying. just dont blame me if it fails, this is a hail mary, at best. I will say it worked most of the time I did it.
Tell you what, send me both with chips, as is, I'll strip the lazer out of your v7, stick it in my old v7 (needs lazer) and send you that, as is. It works, chip or not, the board is good, for a v7. I hate the damn things, and scored a v4 no read for $20, last week, so you see what happpened there, right? I have been considering a chip in my new (really old) baby, since this one is a keeper, since it is not a v7 or later, as I said, I hate them. A 35001, cool, those ALL came in a big, red, bundle-box set with a steering wheel, and GT3, new. Last of the v4's. Keeper. And now reflashed for an R lazer, its what I had. Its been a while since I liked my console. Toss your mc card in, I fmcboot it for you and send it back with, maybe you wont want a chip .

Worked But Doesnt Work The Next Day

Yes I see your problem!
1)Did You Drop the ps2 at all?
2)Maybe Your using the wrong disk...(like old ps1 or copied ps2 games)
3)Maybe it just stopped working...if You got it recently go get it exchanged or fixed(check the warranty)...
4)if it doesnt turn on then its most likely broken or messed up...
5)if the game doesnt work it may be scratched or need to be cleaned
6)clean the ps2!get a computer/game console sprayer...
7)they also have cd cleaning devices that get rid of the scratches (not too big or long though)

My monitor doesnt show anything on the screen

This could be due to bad solder connections, or it could be that parts have failed. In either case, there's nothing that you'll be able to do to fix this yourself unless you have some electronic soldering and TV service skills. LCD monitors have become so cheap today that it is completely ridiculous to pay a shop to repair the monitor (if you can find one that will even try). Just replace it.

My ps2 didnt recognize my ps2 games

Sounds like either the laser pick up head needs cleaning or if it does it with only one title, try polishing the disk..........

PS2 Internal Clock Stuck

Hi Dominicano77,

It sounds like you PS2 needs a good internal cleaning. You can replace the battery and you will still have the same problem. I have repaired over 100 Playstations like yours and never did the battery thing work or help anything but keep the Parental password set. You do not always get Disc Read Error Message. I believe your Laser has a dirty lens. Clean it wil a Cotton swab lightly dampened with Alcohol. Then Dry the lens with the dry swab. i suggest you Clean the entire PS2 of all dust and lint. The orbs should fly around in a circle, not be all grouped. This indicates your have a motherboard data flow problem.

If your not comfortable with this , you need to Click on " Repair directory" at the bottom of the screen. Then click on "Video Game Consoles" and after that pick a Repair shop.

The Power Connector has probably come unsoldered inside the PS2 console. The motherboard is a multilayered board and normal soldering can sometimes total a motherboard. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this Screen. Click on "Video Game Consoles" on the next Screen, Investigate which Repair shop can help you best.

Please help me.

The input AC socket of your PS2 is loose for which you can replace only this socket if some dry solder is not there. Note: This AC Socket is totally seperate from Motherboard.
