Re: Display problem wid a PS2.....

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.

How to fix ps2 display settings

You can adjust screen display settings while playing PlayStation 2. Press the PS button on the Wireless Controller during gameplay and then select [Settings], adjust the following settings. Screen Mode Normal: Set to upscale and display at a size that matches the screen size. Full Screen: Set to upscale and display at full screen by changing proportions and stretching the image. This setting can be selected only when [Normal] or [Full Screen] is selected under Settings > [Game Settings] > [PS / PS2 Upscaler].

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.

The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:


Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!

Backwards compatability

actuallly a lot of ps2 games can be played with the HDMI connected. I do it all the time... however yes the 60 gig will not play every ps2 game and there is a whole slew of the 60 gigs that are not backwards compatable at all. check it out on wikipedia's page on the ps3.

I haven't had a problem with any ps2 game yet, and the only ps game that I own that hasn't played on my ps3 is FF8.

I don't see anything on television when i'm playing ps2

What type of TV are you hooking the cables too? Most likely the TV settings will need to changed to one of the following.  TV1 or TV2 using the input button on the remote, or channel 3 or 4.  It depends the set up of the TV

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.
