    i took my ps2 to a friends and while we where playing 007 everything or nothing the power went out for a few minutes then came back on and now when i turn on my ps2 the red reset light comes on but the blue ejext light doesn't, the screen stays black, the eject button doesn't respond to anythin.

    what i need to know is how to fix it (if i can) and what to look for.

    and if i need to get a new one is there anyone out there who would sell a version 1-7 ps2?

    also the only thing that happens is the fan turns on since i have the fliptop i opened it up and the laser doesn't even try to read the game and the spinning thing doesn't spin either.

    also it doesn't do anything to the tv (it doesn't send anything to the tv)

    please someone i need some help

    the most simple thing...

    open the ps2 and look for the fuse on the power board it's probably it... sometimes at power jumps it can brake... to bad they dont use them ground wires in the sockets... replacing is easy just pull it out and go buy another one at any hardware store it's probably the 2.2 fuse..

    it looks like a small balb... kinda like a tube a thick one... and the ps2 has a white one... the ones that sold today are clear and have 2 metals on eatch side of the fuse.... and inside the fuse it has a very thin wire that transmit electicity... when the power jumps the wire rips to prevent damage to the system.. a very easy way to see it is to look for 2 jumpers who hold white tube... you should see it when opening the ps2 and removing the power board.. remove the power board and you should see it ON the power board..

    if the fuse is the coil in the glass tube then it is not that cause that is fine and has no visual damage

    Damage cannot always be determined visually. Use a multimeter (resistance setting) and test for continuity. Just hold the leads to each side of the fuse. If there is any impedance, the fuse is good - no impedance, fuse bad.

    Good luck.

    BTW - I outa here for while - I'm taking off for a month w/o a computer probably. Take it easy guys - and take it easy on the n00bs.

    Cheers!

    ohhhh nice explain on the psx... :eek: damn i missed 3 of them... i know that it has few of them but i missed few... :/ shame on me.. in anyway check the fuses the ps2 has more than just the white one.. try to replace it... it should work after that... i didnt really check the power of it.. but as i said it's probably 2.2 or 3...
