Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
It looks like you damaged your PS2 firmware, if this is the case you will need to have it reflashed at a sony repair centre.
Check if connectors to video and cold solder joint to video output are ok, test capacitors and resistors for continuity, using a multimeter, see if you find some cap that has blown, that will be luck.
If you do not find anything, it means that you have damaged some of the ICs, probably by touching the board with bare hands and causing electrostatic discharge on IC contacts.
This can be fixed only at a Sone repair centre.
Ask to retailer or call the number listed on the PS user manual, if you are lucky you can purchase an extended guaranty for $80 and have it fixed for free for the next two years, or if the PS is less than one year old you can use your current factory guaranty.
Call Sony and ask.
