I just signed up with afterdawn and I was in hurry to get this question answered... so I did not search to forums for a similar subject yet. My slim PS2 Does not power on anymore. I plugged the AC adapter in and the red light does not even show up. This happened when I was trying to add a fan mod to the same power source as the slim embedded PS2 fan. Shortly after installing the fan, I was plugging in the small power/reset ribbon cable into the ps2 main switch and I forgot that I still had the unit plugged in. I heard that a powerless slim PS2 can be a fuse related issue, so I found a picture diagram that showed the location of all slim PS2 fuses. I tested the fuses with a volt-meter, they seemed fine. I then thought that maybe you are supposed to de-solder the fuses from the board to test them, as them being connected to the board may cause the volt-meter to read inaccurately. Should I desolder the fuses to test them?
