For some reason my PS2 Slimline adapter has completley stopped working , this isn't a problem with my PS2 ( I hope ) as I have tested my friends AC adapter on my PS2 and it worked just fine. I ordered a replacement adapter on ebay and it hasn't arrived for over a week , i'm hoping this is related to the postal strikes currently in the UK. Anyway i'm extremley bored and need a quick and cheap alternative , I tried connecting my 5V psp adapter to my PSP slimline which requires an 8.5V input but all it does it make the PS2 start up for about 2 seconds and then turn off. Anyway I was thinking that if I get a universal adapter and connect the 5V connector end to the PS2 then turn up the voltage to 9 ( because 8.5V isn't availible on the adapter) would the PS2 slimline work ? # Sliding voltage selector switch with power indicator. # Convert mains to 3, 4.5, 5, 6, 9 or 12 volts. # 7 interchangeable connector ends. # 1.8m lead. # Power on indicator. # For use with protable music players, DVD players, cameras, electronic games and most other portable devices. # Rated current of device must not exceed 1200mA.
