You may need NTSC-PAL/PAL-NTSC converter. This may solve your problem.

SOURCE: why is my playstation 2 in black and white?

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)

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...


If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

PS3 problems At home I have a new samsung hd 1080p TV that I normally use for my PS3. I will be in a hotel outa town for the next couple of days and I wanna watch a movie using my PS3. In my...


I had the same problem, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days. When I held down the button, next time I turned it on, I got the same prompt with using HDMI output, said yes, and screen went black. However, a screen then came up asking if I could see the image or not, but it has a 30 second time limit before it saves those setting, you have to click "No" on this screen, and it will drop the resolution to 780p instead of 1080 and it should work! Make sure you're paying attention so you don't miss the screen!

Screen went black while watching a movie, stays black


Looks like you need a new cable from the PS3 to the Tv. get a new one but before that is always better to confirm if you have another tv source connect your PS3 and check it out if the cable is the black sheep out here. you can throw it out and buy new one.

Good Luck

Ps3 blacks out when watching movies and playing


If you have this error then it can normally be fixed with the software meaning that it is not a hardware problem and you might not need to send it off to get it fixed.

To do this you should use the recommended guide that will show you how to fix it in under an hour or of course you can send it in.

It happens sometimes as the data becomes corrupted.

Ps3 will not play any movies


 think your lens may be very dirty. And also please tell if the problem is only with this movie or all the other movies as well? 
moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens). 
I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that. 
Best of luck.

My PS3 won't play DVDs or Blu-ray.


You may need to format the entire system and then update if you really need to watch the DVD that badly

you can move gamesaves to a memorystick before hand so you dont lost anything apart from demos and pics
