Re: firewire connection for ps2 output

The I-link S400 port does not supply power to devices.  If your tv requires a powered S400 port, then the port is not capable of working.  Check the instructions for using firewire on your tv to see if it requires a powered S400 port.  From my experience, the S400 Firewire port is not a video output. The network connection your calling firewire is a slve type situation because is does not have a power output. You can connect the PS2 into a IEEE 1394 network, and that is supposed to be plug and play.

Ps2 no signal to tv

Make sure the Video Output settling is accurate to the TV/connection you are using (i.e. HDMI, analog etc)
This can be changed in the System Settings
If you have recently changed TV's - Set your PS3 back up on your previous TV and then go through the Video Output settings and change to the new TV your are using.
Hope this helps.

Make sure that your PS2 cables are connected correctly into your TV make note of which Input you are connecting to (eg AV1) - Power on your PS2 and TV and change the TV Input to the same as the PS2 is connected to

I connect my ps2 to my lg 32 inch lv3730.It is a full hd 1080p tv. Yet,the graphic quality is very very bad.Even bad than a 15 year old tv.I played it on both lg and very old samsung but the very old...

The problem is your PS2 only outputs 480 resolution video and doesn't upconvert to 1080p. It's going to look awful on 1080p television. Your output and your display have to match in order to achieve quality video results. It will look fine on a 480 resolution set like your old TV's because that's what it was designed for. If you want a better looking game experience on your 1080p TV, upgrade to a PS3.

Im playing FFX on a 720P TV but my Playstation 2 graphics look like im playing on an old tube tv. the picture is all fuzzy. I dont know how else to describe it.

I suggest messing with the plug on the PS2 in the back or possibly on the TV. Since PS2's are out of date they do not have the best graphics even on great tv's. Try putting it on a different tv thats newer and see if they get better or worse. If they get better try messing with the settings on your TV. If they are the same its possible they are at their full potential. Hope this helps.

Everything is connected and im still not getting any picture or sound on my tv.

Hi, you might have to scan for the correct channel on your tv, try one of the AV channels such as AV2 or AV3.

Hope this helped.

Trying to hookup ps2 to direct TV.have found a couple solutions that didn't work.

This is not a problem with the PS2, it is configuration of the Direct TV. Be sure that the port of the TV works. Or if you are trying to connect to your Direct TV box, you it will not work if your connecting to output connection. You can only connect the PS2 to a Video Input.

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.

Capturing a video from the console

It's not a problem, it's designed that way. Its called Macrmedia Encryption. It's so you can't record commercial DVD's onto other media (anti-piracy). Since the game is DVD based, it will not be recordable.
