So I recently decided to put my PS2 in my room. Which has a newer tv So when I plugged it in, the screen display was black and white. So I bought new Sony AV component cables to fix it. Now, the screen display looks right. Except that any red or green colors are now a sickly yellow or dull grey yellow color. Help please?

The PS2 comes with an AV cable. (Red, White, & Yellow). Plug those cables into the matching slots on the back of your TV. They are color coded. If the TV is newer and does not have a spot for AV cables they you will need to by the HD cables or Component cables to match what your TV supports.
I don't know of newer TV's getting rid of AV links yet. Once they are plugged in, change the TV video input to the one that you plugged the cables in.
I suggest messing with the plug on the PS2 in the back or possibly on the TV. Since PS2's are out of date they do not have the best graphics even on great tv's. Try putting it on a different tv thats newer and see if they get better or worse. If they get better try messing with the settings on your TV. If they are the same its possible they are at their full potential. Hope this helps.
if its a HD TV there lie's ya problem lower end comp's like the ps2 tend to look rubbish if poss try to get a HD cable , but i dont remember if they do a HD cable for the ps2 so ya may have to look around , or upgrade to a PS3 which is HD ready and comes with a HD cable
Do you have the remote? You will need to cycle through the inputs to get to video 1 or 3. You might have the buttons on the front of your tv that says tv/video or tv/vcr. If not go down the channels past 1 and it might automatically switch through the video input selections. For any of these solutions have the PS2 plugged into video 1 and turned on. Hope this helps.
