Hi,Polly2, To determine if the TV input is ok, Hook something else into the input you know is working. This could be a VCR or DVD player. If you do not have a set of AV cables, you can get them at Wal-Mart. They are the ones that have Red, White and yellow RCA connector on both ends of the wire. If your TV input is not working, then you need to get VCR to go between your PS2 and the TV. Hooking the VCR in by Cable and putting the PS2 into the RCA connectors and slecting Line or A/V input on the VCR and watching the VCR on Channels 3 or 4. If your PS2 is not putting out Video, I suggest you wiggle the A/V connectorwhere it connects to the PS2. Most PS2 and other Game console develop problems with the A/V connection. Youi can get a Aftermarket A/V Cable on Ebay that is all plastic and it works better than the Original Connector that has metal. If you would like, the Playstation Clinic can fix the PS2 fopr a reasonable price.

Use the video input on your TV instead of the antenna input. You get better quality that way.

I have just turned on my brand new PS2. I can select English fine but then when it goes to the next screen ('time zone') it won't let me select. The X button doesn't function at all. I can't move forward....

I will suggest that you try your pad on another console if its OK, if its fine and working then do this when you put on the console just unplug the power cable from the console not the power switch. cheers

Playstation 2 problems

The PS2 Works fine right correct?? If it does and you want to fix the Laser do the following :

Step 1 Turn off the PS2 if on.

Step 2 make the PS2 lie down on its back where the PS2 logo is not seen.

Step 3 Take off the Rubber Squares which are located from all 4 corners and take out the screws using a screw driver.

Step 4 Take off the lid of the PS2 after the screws are taken out.

Step 5 near the light of the PS2 were it shows the Green and blue light is a box where the PS2 disc runs.

Step 6 screw the top of the box and you should see a disc if not taken out and underneath the disc is the lens use alcohol and gently wipe the lens with a Q-Tip after doing so put the lid out of box back on and open the disc drive and put a game in it should work or just get a new PS2 Slim.

Ps2 certain game irratic

Sir, you probably have been playing this game for a long time or u might have mishandled it,that might have cause a portion of data on disc to be erased.You might see the scratches on disc your self.....the scratches on disc cause usually the same problem i,e some time game works fine but sometimes it wont chould consider buying new Disc of FIFA 08......the problem can also be with your lens get your lens cleaned by some lens cleaning CD or do it yourself (you'll just need one screw driver) carefully with a piece of clothe or tissue without touching the lens....Hope that might solve your problem
