Why is my PS2 black and white on this new plazma we bought. it is NOT hooked up wrong.

First I know this sounds silly but try turning your TV off then back on again with the PS2 connected.
If that doesn't work try this
first go to your tv settings
then go to video/visual/
and then change PAL to NTSC
OR select AUTO

And if that doesnt work, the final solution is to find the switch that is on your AV cable that connects your PS2 to your TV, switch it from Video to Game (I think)

Hope one of these solutions work

I recently aquired a model 2 sega genesis. i have an av cable and a power cord with the same plug. it turns on but it wont play any video. can anyone help?

Without specifics its hard to say what the precise problem is so ill give you a list
ok the power adapter for mine which i've had since it was released has an input of 120v as 50hz 15w and an output of 10v DC 0.85 A if its not outputting that that may be the cause so get a new cord
Make Sure you plugged in everything correctly and power spike is on if using one (better safe then sorry)
Its HIGHLY possible that who ever sold it to use ripped you off and you have a broken Genesis

does the power goes out on the ps2 so you could buy a new power cable but if it isnt that, the ps2 may have a cable insert damage

Well, i tryed even typing i my wired connection dns code like 5 times i trye every solutuon on this damn help site adn nothing worked help me1

DNS is a internet problem, try restarting your internet, there is nothing to type in 5 times. If problem continues contact your internet provider.

Chances are you have a bad internet signals through your cables, and a slight spike in your cable will drop you out of your net play.

Xbox 1 Had energy spike Unit dead

It was a fuse in the power supply unit. my unit was different than everyone else so it was tough desiding just what the fuse was. it was a grey cylinder shaped like a fuse alright....but wasnt in the normal fuse slot. after much searching and looking at the different images of other units........I just said well , if it looks like a fuse......I checked it for contanuity with a test light and a small milli amp currnent.
I hopped it with a jumper wire....plugged it in....Its alive !!!!!

I purchased Spike the Ultra dinosaur and when I turn him on I can hit the remote and he will make one move and stop and the two lights highest on his head light up for a few blinks then he is off again....

I have a similar problem. My two year old Spike only works for about 1 second after startup, then shuts down with the two pairs of lights nearest his head blinking a few times. I replaced the batteries (main and remote) with no improvement. Called tech and they said the blinking lights indicated a "motor stall" and that I should shake him to reset a position switch. I did that and now he works for 3-5 seconds then shuts off.

Black screen, no audio no video

Wow.... Never heard this one before....... I would try using your ps2 with different audio-video cables (maybe just from a friends ps2) If the other cables work than all you have to do is go to your nearest playstation supplier and get new audio-video cables for your ps2. (Walmart Usually sells them)

Hope this helped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps2 faulty

well there is a few things to try but just from the description of the issue I am going to assume that its a motor hub assembly issue or a laser miss alignment.

but first off please try plugging the unit into another wall outlet and see if it happens again so that we can rule out and spike in the power.

secoundly insert a audio cd if it play 100% fine then we know its the laser assembly that needs to be fixed

if it dosent play fine the drive might need to be replaced

thirdly could just be a dirty laser on your unit.
cleaning this might help.

please list the model number on the back or the bottom of your unit so I can post proper ways for you to go about cleaning the laser assembly.
