Question about Emerson EWF2004 20" TV

TV does not recognize PS2 input

I'm trying to hook up a Playstation 2 to this TV (I don't have the remote for the TV) and always get a fuzzy screen and "No Input Signal," no matter what auto presets I try. (the PS2 hooks up with the red/yellow/white three-way cord. I also have a Nintendo 64 hooked up to it, which hooks up with the older kind of cord--a round metal plug with a little needle inside--and for some reason that one works fine.) Is there any way to set the TV so it can find PS2 input...without buying a universal remote?

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:)

How to fix rsod on pcsx2 0.9.7


The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play. This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type of] disc that it can recognize and use.

The most common reason for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed, it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. We don't install or sell mod chips, so we can't help you with that one.

We had our ps2 hooked up to an old rca tv and was using the satelite remote for it channel had to be on 00 for the ps2 to work. We got a new tv and hav moved the rca and ps2 to another place but don't...


New tv's don't use dead channels like 00 anymore for there inputs.. They use sources to change from different inputs.. Make sure you have your ps2 hooked up into input plugs on the tv and then turn it on the ps2 then look on the new controller for the tv & find a button saying source .. Press that until you see your ps2 on the screen. If not check your connections try again.

I am trying to play a game on my playstation 2 hooked up to a Dynex TV but i can not find it on any channel or input. which channel/input would it be?


Make sure you do not have your PS2 plugged into an "Output" set of A/V slots. Change where you plug it in and scroll through your input channels to find it.

Godspeed,

My playstation 3 is hooked up but the tv screen is fuzzy even the menue screen for it won't come on how can I tell if its on tv or hdmi


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If the screen is Fuzzy it only means that your not on the right Input of the TV. Use the Remote of the tv look for Source, Input or HDMI button and change the input to HDMI.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cannot get 27" jvc av-27530 tv to recognize playstation 2


Do you have the remote? You will need to cycle through the inputs to get to video 1 or 3. You might have the buttons on the front of your tv that says tv/video or tv/vcr. If not go down the channels past 1 and it might automatically switch through the video input selections. For any of these solutions have the PS2 plugged into video 1 and turned on. Hope this helps.

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER CALL FELTON (870) 733-1375 OR EMAIL ME IWHYOU@YAHOO.COM

Ps2 connection problem


It could be that you have the incorrect input selected on the tv. Try hitting the input or tv/vcr button several times on the tv.

I don't see anything on television when i'm playing ps2


What type of TV are you hooking the cables too? Most likely the TV settings will need to changed to one of the following.  TV1 or TV2 using the input button on the remote, or channel 3 or 4.  It depends the set up of the TV

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.
