Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

The RGB setting at startup messed up my connection

Ok, well I was playing with the settings on my PS2, the system options you can get into if you leave the disk tray open. Well I changed one of the settings to RGB instead of the by cy or whatever. I thought I could do it because I connected my PS2 with the RGB composite cables to my Samsung HDTV. Well it just totally spazzed out. At first I thought it was just the TV not being able to translate the connection. So I tried on my Sony XBR HDTV and that didn't work either. So I tried the last tv with a composite imput, a SDTV Toshiba, and it still was a no go. I'm basically just asking if anyone knows how I can just reset the entire PS2 system so it would work the the standard yellow video input.

Playstation does not start up

you have to use the conventional audio video jacks first. then access the options menu and enable the component video cable options. i think it will ask you what kind of format your tv supports, and after that, replace it with your components

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!

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

You need to get either an a/v or s-video cable and plug that into your tv and ps2 and start it up. you should be able to see the menu then and switch it back.

Bad picture

All you can do is use the PSOne/PS2 'smoothing' options under the PS3's settings. Just remember that the games were designed for standard definition televisions so your Hi-Def set will really show their ugliness!
