not good, there is little chance of fixing that unless you are an experienced electrical engineer and have an electrical schema of the PS2.

Now is probably the time to hand it in to a service shop :-(

Opening your PS2 trying to fix it is always a risk. Not only is the warranty void, you also risk damaging more than you fix.

If you are careful however, you may be able to fix some minor problem or realise that the problem is too serious and then hand it in to a service shop.

Use a multimeter and go through the PS2 power supply to ensure that power is going through and no fuses or capcitors are blown. If that's ok, then check to see if you replaced the ribbon cable to the power/eject buttons properly (if you've disassembled the console before). Hope the info helps.
