Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I had a PS2 with a similar problem. your best bet is to find another cord and try it with your system. (Sometimes the cords just play out).
You said your screen is blurry though so it is most likely a bad connection between your cord and the port on your TV.
Lastly if you can\'t find another cord to try you can attempt to clean your own with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol.
Unfortunately if that doesn\'t work then your looking at problem with your motherboard. At that point your better off to go buy a still working PS2 then have your own fixed.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Sounds Like the graphics chip is starting to go. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

Hope it helps!
