Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Scrolling picture after being on for around two minutes

No matter what game I try to play on my PS2, the picture will start scrambling and then start scrolling from the bottom to the top of the screen until it's completely scrambled and looks like the TV is on a station we don't get. I'm not sure what the problem is, and would really appreciate some help.

Re: Scrolling picture after being on for around two...

You need a serious internal Detail cleaning of your PS2. The circuit for Video is evidently getting shorted out from dust and grime. Click on the "Repair Directory" link at the bottom of this page. Then on the next page Click on "Video Game Consoles". This will gi ve you a list of repair shops to do this for you. It is very complicated to do.

Why is there a menu scrolling issue with just one PS2 game?

That is a strange one there. I recall Xbox having an issue like that, but only if you were holding a button or control when the game started. I would say, take it to a friend's house and try it there. If it still does it, then you have a rare bad copy with bad code.

When I turn on my PS2 the picture scrolls.

You have a lose connection in your yellow av lead or scart plug, a new lead or resoldering of the current one will solve this.

Ps2 will only play a couple games

hey men. my name is ekeocha chidi michael from nigeria a game freak just like u. b4 condemning ur ps2 try the following:

1. do a total clean up.e open it up n clean it up wit compressed air or a static free rag.
2. realign the lens spinner angle. if u are really using the slim, u wud see 4 screws around the lens n motor. it is usually supported by rubber springs. turn each screw about 18 degrees. then test the game. keep doing it until the game starts workin. this is the ultimate solution it could take a long period of time but if u are lucky just a couple of minutes.
3. change the lens.
4. change the cooling fan.
5. take d console to a specialist.
if these dnt solve ur probs ur ps2 is officially condemned

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.....
