hi i was recently having problems with the fan on the ps2. i noticed it wasnt working when my game would shut off and the red light would be blinking. so i tried another fan, which was new. still not working. when i started to put the ps2 back together i noticed this...
if u look closely there is a hole in the power cable that goes from the power/reset switch, but the game still works. everything seems to be fine except the fan. is that the problem? maybe when it was punctured it hit the wire that powers up the fan? any help is appreciated. thanks. peace. yy
Check all the fuses, I'm pretty sure one of them has blown. Replace the ribbon cable.
