ps2 will not power up
I've got serious problems here with my PS2...No power!
I try to turn the unit on, no red light coming from the reset button. I have checked that numerous times, it is firmly plugged in and does not appear to have any damage.
Keep in mind, I am a complete and total n00b in the way of PS2 repair, so any replies will have to be dumbed down so my rookie mind can comprehend :). Thanks!!
check the power supply fuse
Well I'll help, what version is it? There are two designs for the ps2 mains, one with the power supply on on the "top" of the ps2 and one with it located on the bottom, either way locate it and check the glass fuse in clips on the board, replace with SAME type fuse, before booting up the machine look for any shorts in the sys so this doesnt happen again, or was this a power surge event? Good luck PM me if ya need help, I didnt know the Amish had PS2's ;)
I'm totally lost! Is there anywhere I can send my PS2 to get repaired for a paltry sum? :)
It won't power, and I've since broken my ribbon cable for the controllers. I should not be doing this myself.
If anyone is interested in attempting a repair job for me, leave some info and a price and I'll let you know what's up! :p
Okay buddy, what version is your PS2?
The attachment is the fuse location.
What were u trying to do?
Mod it? Or just run it normal?
U can get a new ribbon cable here:http://www.richspsxparts.com
This fix could be done by newage installs or any of the other guys here, just check around. I personally believe u can fix this yerself, the cable is pretty strong, where did it break? Or did you puncture it?
I had a no solder chip in at the time I ran it.. Anyway, I removed the fuse to examine it, and it is just fine. If I had a camera I'd take a picture for you, but I don't. :)
So what else could be causing this if it isn't the power supply fuse?
uh oh.... what chip exactly? If u don't know what version u have just post the model no. on the back of the unit.
Back out of the install and take it all off carefully.
Next check all the cables that u ever unplugged from the interior of the of the ps2 and make sure everthing is back to where it was, the controller cable doesnt matter the sys will still boot without it. You NEED to acertain wether the ps2 works without the mod before proceeding
