    It cant be pal coz its a brand new console.
    ya,i forgot to tell dat the game HITMAN is working,its got 2 options of PAL & NTSC,so when i choose PAL it works properly but when i choose NTSC it gives me that problem,so i think its coz of the PAL & NTSC difference,i just wished dat all the games had such options.
    Plz gimme a possible solution for this.
    Can i convert those NTSC dvd's to PAL in anyway so that it will work........?

Hi there. Have you tried another set of cables ? They might be the issue. Other than that, check for a solid connection on the back of the TV where the cables are connected, and also on the PS2 itself. You might wanna try on another tv if it's possible for you. If the issue is still there with another A/V cable, on another tv, and if the cables are connected firmly, the problem can be the video output controller on the PS2 mainboard that is going nuts. I've seen a such issue once, and the PS2 mainboard was going bad slowly. Solution was to, unfortunately, replace the PS2 :| Hope that helps, cheebster.

    That should do it ! Thanks, cheebster.

    Oh, and by the way.. the console needs to be modded, else it won't run the NTSC backups that you've converted to pal. Hope it has a modchip already ? :)

Having problems with Dark Cloud 2.


If your PS2 is horizontal, i suggest you put it in vertical position, if yet, it is not playing your dark cloud 2, it means your PS2 could be an old version that can not read the dark cloud 2 game because it is possible that the dark cloud 2 has come with a higher version that your PS2 could not read.

You might need to upgrade your PS2 to an higher version that will be able to read all the new version of the game.

Take care.

Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen

You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.

Insert game disk and horizontal lines move fast on screen ???????

Sounds like your TV has multiple video inputs. Make sure the TV is set to the right channel or input. I know on ours if I hit the TV-input button on the tv remote I can change from inputs like s-video, video, cable etc and the Wii only displays properly on one of them.

HD drive problem

For your PS2 to play in HD you need to to have HD cables for that. You can buy these at your local wal-mart. You can't just hook up regular cables for it. Make sure your T.V. is HD too.

PS2 Slim will not play

hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.
