Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

PS2 I've connected a playstation 2 console to a TV (Amstrad widescreen) but it has no aerial connected and I cant get it to work and wondered if an aerial was needed for it to work. It was previously connected to a small portable with its own aerial and it worked ok but now I've bought a new bigger tv I cant seem to get a channel for a picture. thanks

By an aerial do you mean a converter?
For the neew TV's you don't need one. Just plug it in using A/V cable (yellow is video, red and white are audio). Be sure you take note of which input you are plugging it into on the TV, and then use your TV's remote to change the video input (usually will be labeled video or TV/Video on the remote) to the one you plugged the PS2 into.

I have a very old Toshiba tv i can connect free view and DVD both work fine.However connect my PS 2 console and I getting nothing.

Try hooking up your PS2 through your DVD player. Connect the coloured jacks to the corresponding inputs in the back of the DVD player instead of directly to the TV. Failing this, buy a cheap RF cable (you can get these at any game or hardware store), this will enable you to connect your PS2 to the aerial outlet at the back of the TV. Hope this helps!

I have sound but no picture.

Have you tried replacing the cable that connects the PS2 to your TV? Might be something wrong with the video portion of the connector.

Cannot change screen size

To get widescreen you need to connect to the TV using component, DVI, VGA, or HDMI cables. I doubt the PS2 can connect with either of those.

Slimline powers on disc spins but no picture

sometimes its hard to start tv-games (ps2, gamecube) since you have to put it on 'video', and other stuff.  Depending on your tv you might have 'input 1,2, and 3' instead of 'video'. just keep changing settings, and if you have your 'tri-cable' into a vcr try pressing the vcr power button.

Ps2 slimline.



You mean A/V ( Audio /Visual)cables.  This could be several things.  Motherboard bad. A/V Socket on back of Slim has a bad connection to the motherboard.  Try it on another TV, you may have a bad input on the TV.  You selected the wrong input on the TV. The channel is not set properly on the TV. 


The first two can be repaired by a Technician that knows about Playstation Repair and has plenty of Current experince.I run the website, and will charge up to $51 to repair this, if it is related to the first two possible problems.
