We study positive solutions for the system

$-\Delta_p u = \lambda f(v)$ in $\quad \Omega$

$-\Delta_p v = \lambda g(u)$ in $\quad \Omega$

$u = 0 = v$ on $\quad \partial \Omega$

where $\lambda > 0$ is a parameter, $\Delta_p$ denotes the p-Laplacian operator defined by $\Delta_p(z)$:=div$(|\nabla z|^{p-2}\nabla z)$ for $p> 1$ and $\Omega$ is a bounded domain with smooth boundary. Here $f,g \in C[0,\infty)$ belong to a class of functions satisfying $\lim_{z \to \infty}\frac{f(z)}{z^{p-1}}=0, \lim_{z \to \infty}\frac{g(z)}{z^{p-1}}=0$. In particular, we discuss the existence of radial solutions for large $\lambda$ when $\Omega$ is an annulus. For a general bounded region $\Omega,$ we also discuss a non-existence result when $f(0) < 0$ and $g(0) < 0.$
