Re: PS2 Color

You may have a bad A/V connector on the motherboard. But, the easiest thing to check would be a bad A/V cable. Beg borrow or steal (ok, don't steal) another cable and see if that helps. If not, you could be in for an expensive repair.

My ps2 has no color when im play games but i can watch DVD's with no problems

Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.

Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right.
The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it.
That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.

its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well

The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed

This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.

because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same

go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .

Hope it helps.

My ps2 has a problem reading certain games but works fine with others. to add to the problem, i'm playing on a old color tv which do not have remote & i can not try PAL/NTSC setting. Many times the...

i would say that it depends on the age of the ps2 mine started doing similar things sometime after 5 yrs. this eventually lead to it dying. if its a new ps2 then id say you need a new cord for the ps2 to the tv to solve the color issue and try a universal remote for the tv.. hope this helps. if all else fails a new ps2 at gamestop is like $70

Have a Konka TV but ps2 doesnt play through it.

It may be the T.V. And make sure that the connections are with the right colors, take a light back there and check to make sure. You said the T.V. plays through black and white, maybe the T.V. is old and can only play black and white but those cables will not make a T.V. go to color.

PS2 screen won't show on tv set to game

try to trouble shoot if the wire is the problem, how? remove the 3 colored wires from the tv and ps2 then try to use the red color instead of yellow to the video from tv and ps2 (both red) temporarily do not use the yellow color. once a picture appears use now the white for the audio (both white) for left audio once there is a sound you may try the yellow for the right audio. i hope this will help you and hear a positve reply from you.

PS2 Half Green/Half Black Screen on powerup

I have had this happened when the PS2 has heated up my TV's color was going nuts. The color needed for the different games is sometimes too much. Let the TV rest for a while, then the TV, game should be fine.
