Hey all one day i decided to clean the inside of ma PS2 so i took it apart using all methods to not touch anything that i mite break, i took out the ribbon cables just under the cd/dvd tray we the on button n that goes, wen i put the ps2 back togetha it didnt swicth on n i paniced.

A guy i know said "you've probs blown a fuse on your mainboard" yes i got that but the only thing how the hell do i find out if i have! i live in the UK so if any one knows any were i cud send ma ps2 so they can check and see if it is fixable.

Please help any 1

I would have guessed it is the (white) ribbon tape that was not put back together correctly.

In all the cleaning and laser adjustment FAQs I have seen, people always mention not to disconnect the ribbon tape as it is a pain to put it back.

How did you manage to blow a fuse? Was the PS2 on while you had it open?

It may not be a fuse. It could be the cable put in wrong. If it's put in upside-down it wont work at all. If there's any fuse blown, most likely is the power supply fuse. If you've used a tester/meter before, use it and try and find where the power is not going to. Do not do this if you have no electronics experience, or don't know how to read a circuit.
