Re: will not read ps2 games
The newer models of the PS2 Do not have the E-motion chip in them meaning that they will not read PS2 games. If you do indeed have a model that is designed to read PS2 games, then you will need to contact Sony and have them fix it.

To view your PS2 through the Tv you will need the AV lead from ps2 with the Yellow cord plugged into the Yellow RCA input on the front of the TV. This is called a "Composite" video signal and the AV lead can be bought easily from places like eBay and Amazon if you have not already got one. Normally on the TV Casey if you choose "Aux" it should display the channel that you inserted the lead to. Aux being short for "Auxiliary".
I presume you are in the USA Casey.
If so the best way to view PS2 on a Tube CRT would be either Scart (RGB) or Component video. RGB TVs are not normally sold in the US but some tvs have them. Component video input should be readily available in USA tvs and this will give you a much better picture and is the highest video quality the PS2 can do. A few years back Samsung made a great CRT tv with component video and also scart and it could also do HD gaming.
If you cannot get any of these TVs and have to use the new Sylvania its cool. The yellow video plug inserted into the front of the tv and I have checked on line for the instruction manual and you will have to press " Game" on the remote control which is the same as pressing "AUX" input.
I think this button has to pressed and at the same time it sets the mode at which you will be viewing the PS2.
In game mode the contrast and brightness are normally tweaked to give the best results.
I hope my answer helped you out Casey and good luck with your new TV :)
Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.
Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too http://store.richspsxparts.com/slps2direerl.html
I have only seen this when the PS2 slim has been modded. What I do when this happens is hook the PS2 slim to a HD TV. This clears up the color. The modchip seems to drain the video power low enough that the normal TV with composite connection cannot resolve the signal. The only way to repair this is to get a new motherboard that is not modchipped. IF it is not modded, you still need a new motherbaord. Buy a broken will not read discs PS2 slim with that is NTSC or PAL whichever you use. Exchange the motherboards. You also need to be sure the Broken PS2 slim will boot up, and possibly read CD's but not Games.
well 2 things, 1 HD i don't think works on a PS2, but it does on a PS3 with a HDMI lead, also, playing copied games, watching copied DVD's and listening to copied CD's is illegal unless you have the originals of those discs, in which case use the originals or get ur ps2 chipped in a Computer fair (NOT RECOMMENDED)
