    Yes, it will damage it. It's how I fried my PSOne as a kid. Although when I did that, it was more like 12V.

    Just backing up what Product Fred was saying... don't do this. It will very likely fry one or more components.

    yeah..I bought a PS2 slim with 8 games off a guy on craigs earlier today for $40. Devil May Cry 1&2, Silent Hill 4,Shadows of Colossus,Twisted Metal Black,Shadows of Destiny and Marvel Nemisis Rise of the imperfects. Was in a hurry and didn't check the bag well..Got home and realized it didnt have the power supply. I messaged him ..If I dont hear from him tonight ill call him tomorrow..i dont want to jump to conclusions. He might have just for got to put it in bag.


    EDIT..Ok Well screw me..lol..I spoke to soon..In a post he said dics were very good condition. With hardly any scuffs or anything on them. I just know open each disc and looked at them..Every damn one look like a dog has been chewing on them...I can feel the scratches when i run my finger over them..And im betting that damn console doesnt even work.. For get that..im never buying another game system or games off Craigs again.. Im freaking to trusting..

    I wouldn't be afraid to buy off Craigslist. Consider it lesson learned. I always ask to see it operating before I buy it.
