    It seems as if your power supply has blown, you will need to replace it, or if still under warranty take it back and get it fixed or replaced.

    no its not under warranty gonna try to see if i can use my cuz recipet cause he just got a brand new slim ps2 etc...what seems that happend is when i re plugged in the burnt ac adaptor in it blew something cause i heard a pop =/ im going to take it to a repair shop and see if they can give me a price then and there to fix it.

    Let us know how this goes. I think the more anything goes to smaller formfactor whether its PCs or anything the worse it is on us consumers.. I bet he wouldn't have had that problem without the slimline model...
