Ok are you sure it is set to the TV's & PS/2's Video Format, it is either PAL, or NTSC? Check that. ON BOTH TV & PS/2 and it must be same on both. Or AUTO. just a thought.

Black and white screen


I had the same problem. I fixed it by changing system settings, there is somewhere on the console where you can choose between two differant colour options. have a look around and try changing it on the ps itself.

Ps2 Playing in Black and White and side scrolling.


Scrolls to the side or vertically?

If it scrolls vertiacally I get this from running PAL games on an NTSC TV,

Is this an import game?
Does the game disc and the console show the same video type?

PAL or NTSC. For the game (at least in the US) it shows the video type on the Disc under the PS logo and on the case it is at the bottom of the spine and the top right corner (under the PS logo) on the cover. On the console it should be on the laebl on the back of the machine.

Is the machine modded, such as having a modchip in it or softmodded with HD Loader or USB Advance?

Those programs should allow you to play the games just fine. I have several out of region games on my system and they all work just fine..

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
