make sure to set input on the TV is set to s-video. If left on AV2 the picture is black & white. Set to AV2S the picture is in colour.http://www.avforums.com/forums/ps2/692572-ps2-picture-black-white.html here some troubleshooting steps to help find out what maybe wrong
1. try a different tv
2. if you have a friend with a ps2 try borrowing their cable to make sure its not the cable.
3. try your friends ps2 on your tv.
For me it sounds like the TV treats the incomming signal as a SVHS signal. I have had the same problem with a SEGA dreamcast back in the days. In my case it was a quite simple setting in one of the TV menus.
Try different video inputs. (and SCART adapters) This is also is a important step. Some older TV's doesn't have SVHS support at some of the SCART inputs, and in your case that will be a good thing. But as you said, you maybe already have tried this.
Don't know if this was any help for you but i wish you good luck! (Because PS2 is still really fun playing)
Look at the menu settings on your TV. Some TVs you can set the video to come in through AV (the red,yellow and white), and the sound come in through something else, like HDMI. You need to make sure the TV is set up to where all are on the same setting.
If that doesn't work, I would check and see if your AV cables from your PS2 work on another TV. That way you can rule out whether the problem is the TV or the cable itself.
Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.
This will vary by TV model, but some televisions route external signals to a separate video setting, often only reachable through the remote. Try looking for a "video" or "input" or "mode" setting on your remote. On my TV it's a "video" button that toggles from channels to Video1, Video2, Video3 and Svideo, then back to channels.
If that doesn't help you, let me know the exact make and model of your TV and I might be able to find something more specific.
the leads probably need replacing as these often split inside are you sure the your selecting the right setting on the tv are you using the colour leads red and white or is it scart lead ...............
