Can anyone give me some advice. My PS2 has started to to cause problems. Everything loads OK but the picture quality is terrible. Colours changing and flickering and occasionally blocky.. I've checked all the leads are secure and it is on a steady flat surface. Even given everything a wiggle but nothing makes any difference. Any help would be appreciated. By the way. its about 2-3 year old "Slim" PS2.

1) You don't have a HDMI or component cable 2) Your TV or monitor is low end, and cannot display the majority of the detail in the game.
Most likely it is the cable. eBay has a ton of deals on component cables. I purchased one for my PS2 for under $3, and the quality of the picture is unbelievable. It was possible to achieve 1080i on my PS2!
if this is the only game giving you trouble check the disc for scratches.sometimes even small ones in the right place will cause problems.have the disc resurfaced.lots of places can do it for you like blockbuster video or maybe a local game store for around $2
I have had advice directly from SCE that updates should be done from a flash Drive and not directly from the internet connection on the system, as its quicker and more stable.
I have just had my unit crash on me, by updating first the PSStore update patch, which caused the original issue, then an update for RSV2 pretty much finished it off.
here's what id do from one gamer to another.
dont have a ps3 though, but a ps2 and an xbox. it could be one of two things.
the 1st, you could have your AV jacks, red white and yellow connected to the wrong colors, this would cause no picture to show up. make sure they are the same
if that doesnt do it, than unfortunatly in my opinion you may need to see if its still under warranty. since something is either fried or the cables could be threaded wrong or something insdie the console, and you cant gain access to that unless you take out all the screws, and i did that for my ps2 take my advice dont do it.
if that isnt it, than I dont know, but i thought id give it a shot :)
Sounds to me like the graphics processor or power supply is almost dead. The system uses extra power when loading, taking away resources from the rest of the system. This will cause, among other things, reduced video output. Sadly, I don't believe there is a fix for this beyond replacing the unit. :(
There is a *slight* chance, however, that a cable near the CD rom has come loose and the motions of the drive vibrate the cable into poor connectivity but somehow I don't think this is the case. Hope this helps some.
