I connect my ps2 to my lg 32 inch lv3730.It is a full hd 1080p tv. Yet,the graphic quality is very very bad.Even bad than a 15 year old tv.I played it on both lg and very old samsung but the very old...

The problem is your PS2 only outputs 480 resolution video and doesn't upconvert to 1080p. It's going to look awful on 1080p television. Your output and your display have to match in order to achieve quality video results. It will look fine on a 480 resolution set like your old TV's because that's what it was designed for. If you want a better looking game experience on your 1080p TV, upgrade to a PS3.

Audio, but no video on PS2

Try the system on another TV. If this doesn't yield any results, then you may need to get the console replaced.

If you can see video on the other TV set, try to connect the console to the TV directly, rather than through the A/V ports on your DVD player or HD converter box, as this can sometimes cause more harm than good.

Ps3 has black screen with white lines some noises

I am sorry but the voltage surge, which must have occured after having switched off the protector has most probably blown or fried the High Voltage circuitry which makes the tube function. It could be that both horizontal & vertical control IC's are damaged. If the picture tube is still OK then its worth repairing. However if the picture tube is gone then better to buy a new diplay unit after checking up the rest of the equipment that a playstation consists off......................................sodeep

You shouldn't need to connect your PS2 to your cable box. Both are video signal sources.

However, some cable boxes do have aux or line inputs. In that case you would connect the yellow, red and white plugs from the PS2 AV cable to your cable box's yellow, red and white inputs. Make sure the jacks you plug in to are labelled input or in, otherwise they're outputs and they won't work.

Try a different output cable/lead may be faulty.
Also double check, any on-board ribbon cables in the PS2 itself.
If non of this works Video Chip may have blown.
This can sometimes be seen under close inspection ( burn mark on 1 or more Corners) .

Firewire connection for ps2 output

The I-link S400 port does not supply power to devices.  If your tv requires a powered S400 port, then the port is not capable of working.  Check the instructions for using firewire on your tv to see if it requires a powered S400 port.  From my experience, the S400 Firewire port is not a video output. The network connection your calling firewire is a slve type situation because is does not have a power output. You can connect the PS2 into a IEEE 1394 network, and that is supposed to be plug and play.
