Help! Could this be a battery problem? –
Hi... I left my PS2 for 2 months unused in a cabinet because i was so busy that time and got no time to play but when i tried using it yesterday, i experienced a problem. Everytime i turn it on from standby, after turning on the main switch at the back, it wont boot up until i press the reset button. It happens everytime from standby.But Then i observed that sometimes the clock just sets itself randomly like the year went to 2199 where 2099 is the year limit. After setting up the configuration screen, then i powered off the console to standby then turn it back on, it boots right away. But when i turn off the main switch at the back for some 1-3 minutes, the problem goes back again and sometimes the time resets itself after pressing the reset button to boot it up to the home screen.
Could this be a battery dying out?! My PS2 is not really always being used... I only play casually when i have time.. And its a SCPH 50006 still unmodded and untouched inside.
I watched an 1 hour show using SMS and tried powering it off for 5 minutes using the back panel switch (Main Switch)
and the problem no longer occured,,, Im going to try it again later this afternoon,,, Could it be that after watching a show the battery got some recharge enough to maintain the settings data on its internal static ram?
Help is really appreciated. thank you.
I dont have time to open it up so if the problem could really be the battery then i would feel at ease. I really love my ps2 so please i need some confirmation or anyone who had the same experience?!
Thank you very much PlayStation Community!
Going back here tomorrow to check back for responses...
Im the chosen virtual keyblade master! Oh yeah!
