Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 2 with no audio.

I have an older playstation2 (5001) and it does not have any sound out at all. It plays all games no problem, just no sound. I bought a new AV cable and still no sound. I opened the console and found it severly rusted on one side of the shielding and on the AV connector. I cleaned up the shielding and gounds on the mainboard. Being a certified electronics technican, I unsoldered the the Optical jack (have to get the AV jack off) and the AV jack and cleaned the grounds and internal pins. Resolded all jacks back on and reassembled console and still have no audio. If I knew the pin out of the AV jack, I would be able to see if it audio is getting to the jack using an O'scope. It is most likely the jack and was wondering if any one might know what the part number for the AV jack would be. I can get the part, but I need to know what the part number is. Here is a site that has just any part for any electronic item, Just put in the manufacture and model number of equipment (say a Playstation 2) and any and all parts will come up. Unfortunately, its all listed by part number with really vague distriptions. So, if anyone can help with the part number, that would be great! Thanks for taking the time to read the novel I just posted.

Re: Playstation 2 with no audio.

Hi, Im a game console repairer by trade, Had a look at the parts numbers lsit for you but none match to the AV jack your after. Your best solution would be to source another dead 50001 with another problem such as a laser problem or similar from somewhere like Ebay and unsolder that AV jack or just swap out the motherboard completely, Sony have never been up to speed in supplying parts so used parts are really your only option.

No sound on playing games but have sound on movies

You need to check your audio settings
1) ensure they are correct
2) ensure games are ntsc if your region is ntsc and not pal because video might revert and not audio.
3) If wma is enabled make sure you are using ntsc again and also
4) If the ps3 is using jailbreak game could be corrupt
but i would guess it could be 2 so check your tv settings properly because pal games work when ps3 is in pal mode and ntsc when ps3 is in ntsc mode with sound.

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3

Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2

We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!
