Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

2 Answers


I have an older TV without the red, white, & yellow input jacks, so I'm using an RF adapter for my PS2. This works fine but when I try to watch a DVD I get a very loud intermitten buzing noise. I thought the RF adapter was defective so I replaced it but it's still the same. I've had this problem with 2 different TV's & 2 different PS2's. HELP ME PLEASE! ZIPPY20

Between the ps2 and the TV, loop the cable around a metal rod or post of some sort. This should disrupt the interference you are getting which is caused by the electricities frequency! Hope this helps!

How to connect a ps2 to tv?

You have to use the cord (red, white, yellow) and the other end of the cord is designed only for PS2. That end goes in the PS2. Hope I helped.

How to hook my play station 2

To what kind of monitor or TV set?
using the correct output cables from the console, plug it in to the 'In' port of the TV.
Compossite cables are yellow red and white. Should be simple enough?
unless you have a more complex situation, then you need to be more specific in your question.
If a set with multiple 'Inputs', then take notice of what port you plugged into, and then press 'Input' on your remote, and scroll to the proper port.

When i turn on my ps2(slim) i cant see or hear eny on the TV way is the happing plz help me

Check your A/V cable connections. They are the Yellow (Video), White (Left audio), and Red (Right audio)wires coming from the back of your PS2 to the connectors on your TV. Be sure they are plugged in and they have a tight connection. Also, be sure they are plugged into the appropriate jacks. They jacks are usually color-coded to match the connector type. Then check to make sure the plug that connects to the back of your console is in the correct port and is snug as well. A loose connection anywhere will prevent anything from coming up, the PS2 was infamous for that.

Aside from issues with A/V, be sure your TV is on and tuned to the correct source. If your PS2 plugs into an RF switch which plugs into the coaxial (cable) port on the back of your TV, the channel should match what the RF adapter is set to before turning on the console. If the PS2 is plugged into your TV through the A/V cables (The yellow, white, and red connectors we discussed earlier), make sure your TV is set to the proper source. The source channels could either be labeled "Video 1," "Video 2," or "Video 3," depending on your configuration. Also, the source could also be labeled "Game."

If none of the two solutions above work, then it appears your PS2 has bitten the dust. Best thing to do is give it a nice tombstone with a beautiful eulogy to make even the most battle-hardened tough guys cry like a baby

What cable do i need to connect ps2 console to tv set?

If your tv is older you need an RCA set like this: Check the back of your tv to see if it has a red, white, and yellow inputs.
If your TV has a component input (red, gree, blue for picture, red white, audio) I would go with a set like this Take Care, -WN

How do i set up a ps2 to a tv that only has a yellow and white input

It's called a "composite" adapter cable for PS2. The yellow RCA connector is composite video. The white RCA connector is left-audio (usually there's white and red for stereo - left/right)

There should have been a cable that came with your console, but in case you bought it used, here's a picture of what it looks like.

Also, you can buy one aftermarket:

Look around, I wouldn't pay more that $15 for it.

I wanted to know if the PS3 can be hooked up to an AC adapter

There is an RF adapter that you can buy if your TV has the port for coax cable or S-Video. Here is a picture of one of the many available RF adapters. Thanks!

You shouldn't need to connect your PS2 to your cable box. Both are video signal sources.

However, some cable boxes do have aux or line inputs. In that case you would connect the yellow, red and white plugs from the PS2 AV cable to your cable box's yellow, red and white inputs. Make sure the jacks you plug in to are labelled input or in, otherwise they're outputs and they won't work.

My tv is blank whn i play with.

Make sure all the cables are plugged in correctly yellow to yellow, red to red, white to white. Your TV may have you change the input to an auxillary channel, or even a TV/VCR button would change the input for video game consoles. If none of that works then i suggest getting an RF adapter for your system. That will turn your cable jack on your TV into your input for your console, then you just go to channel 3 or 4.

Connecting ps2 to my TV

did you hook the yellow up to a green jack labeld Y on the back? What kind of tv do you have? Some component inputs (the ones with the green Y jack) are not compatible with the video input you have, some are.
