Well, what types of connections does your new TV have compared to the old one? Perhaps you're connecting it correctly but you're not selecting that input from the TV's menu? Be sure to double check the cables you are using to be sure they are hooked up correctly. Sometimes it's the simplest mistakes! Good luck.

I must be an idiot, I can't get a picture on mt T.V

There are two possible problems. Either your wires have been shorted out and they do not work, or the RCA jacks on your tv do not work. To see if the playstation wires work, try them on a different tv before continuing. If they work, then you know it is your tv that is the problem. If they do not work on a different tv, then you need to buy wires where you can purchase at a Gamestop, Bestbuy, Circuit City, Etc. Also be sure that the wires are securely in your play station because i used to experience the same problem. It was simply that the wire in the back of the plastation was not fully in.

I have sound but no picture.

Have you tried replacing the cable that connects the PS2 to your TV? Might be something wrong with the video portion of the connector.

In this situation two things could be happen
1- Your PS2 lens get dusty/dirty.And needs cleaning.
2- Audio Video cable could be damaged.

First try to check your A / V cable, if its working then lens requires cleaning.

Thanks and bye.

Trying to get ps2 to play on new tv..

USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV.  Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4.  Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2.  This should work. I hope it helps you.
