Maybe because when your playing your ps2 the screen goes dark and when you turn your ps2 off the screen gets really light because of the brightness controls.

Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.

My ps2 on start up show a flickering black and white screen that you cannot read and will not play a game but it will play a brand new game out of the box once you get past the black and white flickering...

Ok are you sure it is set to the TV's & PS/2's Video Format, it is either PAL, or NTSC? Check that. ON BOTH TV & PS/2 and it must be same on both. Or AUTO. just a thought.

Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen

You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.

Poor quality picture while playing ps2 games?

i think you should try other modes too like pal and others or in many tvs there is a option auto so the tv automatically select the best mode of color itself.....

Bad picture

All you can do is use the PSOne/PS2 'smoothing' options under the PS3's settings. Just remember that the games were designed for standard definition televisions so your Hi-Def set will really show their ugliness!
