Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Video problem Hi the problem I am having with my console is that when I try to play a game or watch a movie I cannot see the screen properly. I would like to know what the situation is and how to handle it. I have tried multiple tv inputs and none succeed. I am using a tv which has only composite cables and I am using a Component cable from the PS2 to the tv. Please if you can tell me how to repair this PS2 and and where I can get it fixed if at all. The screen has blurry imagery. In the past there was a time when the PS2 was not working. Christopher Papetti Lopez

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.



good luck

SOURCE: Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video

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!

SOURCE: i got ps2 console 30004\pal. but has no video signal from it.

That's the Mother Board problem, you should take it to the Sony for servicing or qualified personnel.

SOURCE: tv goes blank for few seconds while playing games

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.

How come I cannot watch video downloaded from play movies but I have audio from the movie


Your playback unit does not have the proper software codecs to play back the video portion. Happens all the time with newer tv's that allow you to play back downloaded movies. Some will work, others do not.

How do I watch a movie?


You should be able to put the DVD in the tray and should automatically recognize it and go into the movie.
What type of media are you trying to watch. PS2's cannot play blu-ray movies.

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...


If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Problem watching movies & playing games(screen flashes black on & off


HI
This may not help, but you can try to lower the resloution to another widescreen format.
I'm thinking you may have your resolution maxed out and the video card is having problems with the movie games because of that. Possibly not enough video memory
Movies will work fine at lower resolutions, Not sure about all the games but they probably will too.
