PS1 doesn’t turn on?


I bought a PS1 original at a thrift store today. I brought it home, plugged it in, but it doesn’t turn on. I push the power button but nothing happens. I took a look at the power supply inside and it looks fine. Also, my PS2/PS3 video cable doesn’t connect. Long story short, what do I need to do to fix my PS1? I found a power supply online for $10 but I don’t want to spend any money.

  1. PS1 is a very old consel and it would probably be cheaper to buy one on Craigslist for 10 or 15 bucks but the same thing happened to me when I bought my PS2 I needed the cords because the ones gamestop threw in didn’t work so. It is either broke or needs the cord. Hope I helped.

  2. ps1 was late 1990s that’s over 10 years it may be broken. i hope you did not pay to much for it. try to return it to the shop but if you can’t then you may just be out of luck.

  3. Its probably not even the power supply. It could be anything like a cracked mother board.do ps1s even have that?
