Im at my wits end with this. I have a slim PS2 (Bought second hand - off here actually a couple of months ago) and it just keeps shutting down back to standby for no reason.
It has no problem reading discs or anything, but at random times (ill be lucky to get 10 minutes play out of it at a time) it will just cut off, straight to standby again.
I thought originally it was overheating but now its doing it from a cold start sometimes after a few seconds so im not sure its that.
Ive changed the power supply to see if that was the problem. But i dont know what else to do now, apart from scrap it
Can anyone suggest anything?
