Playstation2 will not play black discs

Are there any visible scratches on the black discs? If so i would recommend getting them resurfaced at your local game store.
If there is no damage to the disk then it is more likely than not down to the PS2 laser, as they get older they struggle to read more and more until they will only read perfect white disks or nothing at all. Give the laser a good clean with some solvent, being careful not to scratch it.

I have a black screen when I connect the HDMI cable. When I connected it originally it worked for about 5 minutes but now I get nothing but the black screen. I tried connecting a different HDMI cable to it...

The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may damage and not proper connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damage, do borrow your friend cable and have a try. If your friend cable work fine, and the black screen error disappear. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for replacement.
Tips 2: If tips 1 not working, you need to go another step deeper by reset your console. Most of the PS3 gamers not aware that Sony actually done include in the black screen troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".
If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data in hard drive.
You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed to two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

Controller interface problems with playstation2

Phoenix controllers have never reallly worked with playstation console which is why the majority of retailers have pulled them off the shelves. Your best bet would be to return the controller and get another logitech controller, or a Mad Catz controller.

No picture for playstation 2

Could possibly be that it is not connected up correctly, or your playstation has died. If you have access to another playstation, hook it up to your cables as they are hooked up. If the screen works. Your playstation has died.

If not, and you have the same issues, try their cables, and if that doesn't work. You have it plugged in incorrectly.
