Broken AV port on back of Playstation 2

My AV port is broken which i know for a fact. no matter what i try to do to the wire i cant get it to work. i can somewhat see the game but it is black and white with grey stripes flowing up the screen. im really not sure what to do, is there a way to replace the AV port? or do i just have to get a new one? and, does GameStop buy broken ps2's?

SOURCE: playstation 2 wont read games

I used to have a ps2 and experienced this exact problem. In my case the lense was dirty, I opened my ps2 and VERY carefuly wiped my lens with methelated spirit (becareful, some methelated spirits that contain oils ment to prevent their consumption, these must be avoided!)then blew out the whole system with a hair dryer. Reassembled it and VWALA! it worked like it was bran new or even better!

This sounds more like a catastrophic failure on the main board.
Barring replacing the whole thing, you may find someone selling another as parts

soo there are other ways to fix this, but its hard to find the parts and depending on your soldering skills may not help. fix one is replacing the av connector on the mother board. thisis not fun as its a very delicate un solder and re solder job. fix 2 just replace the wholemother board,easier but still hard to get parts for. hope this helps

My psp cannot read memory stick duo

-try other memory card to know if the port is having a problem, if other memory card is working so the problem maybe is the other memory card...
-if the problem is memory card, try getting a card reader and try to format that in your PC.
-you just need to prove if the port is broken or the memory card itself is broken....
-if port is defective you have to bring it to Sony or to a local repair center.

Intermittent Sounds Problem on PS3

If you have verified the AV cable is not the issue, it's likely the AV port on the PS3 is the culprit.
Try your cable on another PS3 to be sure. Then try your PS3 and cable on another TV.
If it still misbehaving, send it back to Sony for repair.

My ps2 anolog dual shock controller wont work!

It could be the PS2 connector port.
1) Try cleaning it. Maybe used compressed air or just blow into the faulty connector port.
2) Something more challenging, is to maybe open up the PS2 and to search for any broken connections between the Ps2 controller port, and the Motherboard of the PS2. Use a phillips #0 or a phillips #1 screwdriver, flip the ps2, you will see all these tiny squares, pull them out using something sharp, and underneath them there will be the screws, also there are some screws located underneath the warranty sticker and another underneath the Info sticker, just probe the surface until you land upon a hole. there you will find the screws. Open the ps2 up and you will spot the connector and search for any broken connections. any broken links can be fixed just by using a soldering iron and some solder.( OPENING UP YOUR PLAYSTATION VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY).
3) IF your ps2 is still under warranty, you can send it back to sony, or one of their many repair centres around the nation( IF U ARE IN THE USA). If in another nation, you can visit and follow their instructions on how to go about with in warranty repairs

Sony Playstation 3, Pins to plugging in to console is broken. Would it be possible to fix it.

You mean the AV port?
If that is the issue use a HDMI cable.
The ports are part of the motherboard so you need to replace the whole thing.
