It's called a "composite" adapter cable for PS2. The yellow RCA connector is composite video. The white RCA connector is left-audio (usually there's white and red for stereo - left/right)

There should have been a cable that came with your console, but in case you bought it used, here's a picture of what it looks like.

Also, you can buy one aftermarket:

Look around, I wouldn't pay more that $15 for it.

It will still work fine, but you won't have the same sound quality as if you used all three colors.

SOURCE: Connecting ps2 to my TV

did you hook the yellow up to a green jack labeld Y on the back? What kind of tv do you have? Some component inputs (the ones with the green Y jack) are not compatible with the video input you have, some are.

SOURCE: PS2 MAKES BUZZING NOISE

Between the ps2 and the TV, loop the cable around a metal rod or post of some sort. This should disrupt the interference you are getting which is caused by the electricities frequency! Hope this helps!

SOURCE: ps2 hookup to lcd tv

I suggest you buy the commponent cable (gold plated) itz better or should i say superior than the AV cable ,you will get the better color ,picture etc.And dont forget to hold "TRIANGLE" & "X" button while the game iz booting (thiz to know if the game support progessive scan or not)..not all PS2 game support progressive scan ,so you may find a few problem like the pixel not smooth ,i guess maybe this PS2 weakness when you play it with LCD .

How can i play ps2 on lcd without having a black and white screen ? how can i connect the cables ?.....when i look at the back of my lcd i find three ports (red white yellow) when i use them the screen is...


1) The set of input (Yellow= Composite video, Red= Right channel audio, White= Left channel audio). This set of input is for composite video.

2) The set of input (Red= Red video signal, Green= Green video signal + sync, Blue= Blue signal, Red= Right channel audio, White = Left channel audio (the Red and White will be grouped close together). This set of input is used for Component video for HD signal.

You should try using composite video source (Yellow RCA jack) from DVD player and feed to the monitor and see if it works OK with all color showing that way we acn find out if it is the video source problem or the monitor video signal processing problem. Try the PS2 on the TV if it works OK also.

What cable do i need to connect ps2 console to tv set?


If your tv is older you need an RCA set like this: http://bit.ly/84rLq7 Check the back of your tv to see if it has a red, white, and yellow inputs.
If your TV has a component input (red, gree, blue for picture, red white, audio) I would go with a set like this http://bit.ly/783eGC Take Care, -WN

Can i hook up PS2 using only the white and yellow jacks?


i download and read your owner manual .

http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/DWT1304.pdf

i do see you only have a video and a mono sound input jack , so , your ps2 as in all RCA style jack inputs , yellow is video , red and white is audio , i will assume you have yellow plug in video and red or white in audio , and on your TV remote you hit the GAME button , i'm suprised they don't use the term VIDEO , but , anyway , are these the steps you have taken ?

TV does not recognize PS2 input


On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the PS2 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)

PS2 hook-up


I would suggest to feed video from another source such as DVD or VCR to the same input, if the video is visible from other sources on your TV; that means the video cable from your PS2 is defective. If you did not see any video from the DVD or VCR nor the PS2, it means that there maybe a loose connection inside the TV on the video input.
Hope this helps.

Ps2 hookup to lcd tv


If your sanyo has a video input (yellow) available, and audio inputs available (white and red) then you just need to connect them. Then you need to select the proper input on the TV set. These may be on the back, side, or front of the TV.

Good Luck, and let me know how it worked out!

Trying to get ps2 to play on new tv..


USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV.  Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4.  Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2.  This should work. I hope it helps you.
