Playstation 2 Usb Ports Low Voltage Is There A Fix

1 replies 1088 views Edited Jun 13, 2013

My son went to hook up his Rock Band and the receiver didnt light up, he tried his Dj Hero and nothing there, he then tried the wired drum set and no lights there, I plugged in a USB hub and the LED lit up on the hub but no other items will power up. I confirmed the receivers functionality by plugging them into my PC's usb port and everything lit up. So is this somewhat common in the older fat PS2's? Is there a fix for it (not affraid of solder) thats cheap and easy or is it going to be a non usb having back up system?

Most likely the PS2 power supply is starting to fail, which would be likely cause of low power output. Only option is to get a new console off ebay or gamestop. As of Dec 31, 2013, sony stopped manufacturing PS2 consoles, so you will be required to dig deep to find one, or use ebay.
