    I have A Samsung LCD TV and a PS2. It has Yellow, red and White cables. If I plug the cable television into one set of components I get colour, and if I plug the PS2 into the same plugs I get colour. If I try and plug the cables from the PS2 into either component 1 or 2 I get black and white PS2 pictures. There is only one set of YRW plugs to plug into the back of the TV.  Its driving me insane. Please help me fix this problem.

Since you're playing in a PAL region, it sounds to me like you're using the wrong connection for your system. You don't need to buy an SCART adapter for your cable, but if you pick up an RGB cable for your PS2 instead of composite, you should be fine. This is assuming you don't have a composite connection somewhere on your TV. Component (Y/Pb/Cr) would also be a good option. I can recommend a store here in the US, but I don't know if they ship internationally. The linked item is an S-Video cable, which will work well if you have an S-Video connection available. You can look for the other options on the site. Good luck!

I was trying to connect my ps2 with Panasonic vieara tv but picther is in black and white and no sound


A black and white picture suggests you are trying to use a composite video input but the TV may be NTSC format while your game is PAL, or the other way round. Use a game with the correct format or use the separate RED, GREEN & BLUE inputs (may require a different type of lead).

Ok are you sure it is set to the TV's & PS/2's Video Format, it is either PAL, or NTSC? Check that. ON BOTH TV & PS/2 and it must be same on both. Or AUTO. just a thought.

Have a Konka TV but ps2 doesnt play through it.


It may be the T.V. And make sure that the connections are with the right colors, take a light back there and check to make sure. You said the T.V. plays through black and white, maybe the T.V. is old and can only play black and white but those cables will not make a T.V. go to color.

There is a problem with the AV2 input. Since this is a new set, return it for repair or exchange. DO NOT open it up as that would void the warranty.
