Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Need to install a PS2 to a cable box.

I recently switched from satellite to cable. I have a very old tv and I tried to connect my system to the cable box using a RF Modulator. I still can't play the unit because no graphic/pictures shows.

What do I need to do?

    I tried unhooking the cable box and running the cords to the modulator and the tv but my unit still doesn't come on. Do I need something other than the modulator to make this work?

NO ON SCREEN DISPLAY WHEN CONNECTED TO T.V


Well this might happen but not to worry. You can try out the steps yourself

  • You need to check that the input mode of the TV is just right for the connector in use on the playstation 3 computer entertainment system.
  • Check using another cable that is compatible with the PS2. Sometimes there might be a problem with the cable in use.
  • In few occasion the video settings on the play station 2 do not match those of the cable or TV in use. In that case there might not be pictures on the screen. If the screen goes blank, switch off the system.
  • After this, with only the PS2 and the TV connected, touch the systems' power button for more than 5 seconds to switch the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

Audio, but no video on PS2


Try the system on another TV. If this doesn't yield any results, then you may need to get the console replaced.

If you can see video on the other TV set, try to connect the console to the TV directly, rather than through the A/V ports on your DVD player or HD converter box, as this can sometimes cause more harm than good.

there should be a swith on the box which plugs into the ps2 (about 3 inches into the wire) and some cables have the switch on the box that fits into the tv try flicking the switch this should do the trick

PS2 on a LCD


You will need to go to your PS2 system configuration screen and change from RGB to YPbPr component video output. The 1920ex (remember to switch source to YPbPr) will then correctly recognise the signal from PS2.

Hope this helps you. I am also a 1920ex user.
