My silver slimline ps2 powers off unless you hold the power cable down, any suggestions?

Annoying it turns off and you have to have the ac cable weighted

Sounds like the solder joints have failed on the board. Either take it to a friend you trust to do this, or if you are comfortable with disassembly and soldering then do so with a sharp tip soldering iron, hand held pen type not the huge gun type. Of course always unplug the power before doing any type of work on it.

SOURCE: Ps2 Disk won't spin unless pressure applied

i had the same problem and i could fix it.

but you i'll have to open your ps2, and then you will notice a little black switch in the on the top of link image:

now, open the switch (you i'll see a little wire metal inside) clean the inside part of the switch, and "bend" a little ( til you can make sure that will make contact when the lid is closed) and then close the switch.

sorry for my bad english. =P

i hope this help.

SOURCE: ps2 slimline wont stay on red light goes on then off

The problem is most commonly the ac power cord. I have a PS2 slimline and I had a power cord that fit into the slot and was completly similar to the original cord ,but you may need to order a new cord to solve your red light situation.

The on/off switch won't turn on. i have power on (red light) switch clicks but no green light. i have taken lid off and white button seams on work but still no green light. i have even held down little...


This is one of three things. Unfortunately, it's difficult to determine which, unless you start replacing parts.

1. Bad switch. The switch doesn't usually go bad by itself, has the PS2 been dropped? Bumped? Anyone push the switch too hard? It's held in by solder on all 4 corners. If the solder becomes dislodged, the switch can fail.

2. Bad cable. This is rare unless someone opened the PS2 and removed/installed the cable a few times and frayed the internal wires.

3. Bad motherboard. Sometimes a power problem can develop, or the motherboard can short out. It's pretty rare, but I have seen it happen.

4. Bad AC adapter. Recent power surge? It's possible that the AC adapter is delivering enough voltage to power the standby light, but not enough to power the actual system on. You can easily check this by plugged your PS2 up on someone else's AC adapter or taking your AC adapter to someone else's PS2.

Black screen, no audio no video


Wow.... Never heard this one before....... I would try using your ps2 with different audio-video cables (maybe just from a friends ps2) If the other cables work than all you have to do is go to your nearest playstation supplier and get new audio-video cables for your ps2. (Walmart Usually sells them)

Hope this helped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slimline PS2 Power Problem


What do you have to hold down, the cord from the adaptor to the machine or the cord from the plug to the adaptor? Did you get a shock when you first tried holding the cords down? The cords are pretty thick and the insulation should not peel off at all unlees you are also twisting the cord. Also if you lay the console flat instead of using the stand the problem may clear up, because you won't be twisting the cord.
