Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85

The connection lead that worked with my previous tv (a traditional 26" Phillips) connected the PS2 to the aerial socket of the tv. The socket that plugs into the tv has an adapter that allows the aerial and the PS2 to plug into the tv's aerial socket.

I have tried the above set up with my new Panasonic HT32LZD85 and I get the message on the screen 'No Signal detected'

Please could you advise me what to do to make the PS2 work.

    Hi Normandez,

    Thanks for your advice. I'll keep the PS2 chugging on for a little while longer!

    I do remember a second cable that came with the PS2. This cable would have plugged into the back of the PS2 and it did have a 3 way ending with red, yellow and white plugs. Problem is I chucked this cable away as I thought I would never need it!

    Any ideas where I might get another?

OK, got my Panasonic 42" 720p plasma from Bestbuy a few days ago and wanted to hook up the kids Ps2. I also had an older surround sound system, u know the all in a box one. OK back to the story: since the DVD player had no hdmi hookup, ( the connection that gives you all the HD/ vry good looking channels that u use in conjuction with a hdmi cable box from comcast, or whichever), I had to run my yellow monitor cable from my dvd palyer in the video 1, yellow slot on the back of the tv, thereby eliminating my use of the vid 1 slot for the ps2 a/v (yellow, wht and red) cables. I was able to use the frt. video 2 hookup but didn't want this to be my permanent hookup.
Solution: found ps2 "component" cable w/ ps2 connector at gamestop for about $15.00 and a 12ft. at bestbuy, on sale for $29.00. Look for these cables in the playstation section. Hook the five color coded cables into the rear component 1 or 2 slot of the tv with the other going into the ps2, select component 1 or 2 on the tv/video selector and it's game time.

note: they sale these cables for ps2 and ps3. I don't know why panasonic didn't opt for more video slots in the back of this tv, but I've found this to be a fix for palystation hook ups.

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

    I found one on ebay but if you don't have a ebay and a paypal account you will have to set one up or scour the internet for one here is the link*NEW*_W0QQitemZ250303808466QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20081004?IMSfp=TL081004103006r24906

    Personally I would use because you don't have to set up a entire separate account just to pay for your item and I don't trust paypal here is the link if it does not work just go to amazon and type playstation 2 in the search bar then sroll through the items till you find it. Cheers!

Hi it sounds like the video lead needs replacing give that a try first and if that dont work then it could be that the part you plug the lead into in the back of the ps2 has come loose and is not connecting with the circuit board properly.

see if you have a friend who has a ps2 with a lead you can just borrow to try on yours then that way you will know if it needs a new lead or the board needs some soldering doing the re-connect the video lead socket.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

How do I connect my Playstation 2 to a Phillips

First, you need to plug in the A/V cable (the cable with the red, yellow, and white tips) to the back of the Phillips TV. There should be color coordinated plugs to go with the cable. After that, plug the other end of the A/V cable to your PS2, and you are good to go with your audio and video.

You may be connecting your PS2 with a different cable connection than you used previously.  If this is the case, reconnect the PS2 to the last television that it worked on and change the video connection settings to what your next television is using.  Then power the PS2 down and move it to the next television.  The picture should be fine now.
