Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.
Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right. The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it. That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.
its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well
The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed
This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.
because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same
go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .
This could be a few things. The most common problem I have seen after a unit has been dropped is the spindle that moves the laser back and forth comes out of the socket. Disassemble the unit and reinstall the spindle in the socket. Sometimes the laser goes out. New lasers can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00. It could also be one of the two switches that lets the system know when the lid is closed. One of the switches is located on top of the power switch board and the other is located on the motherboard near the back left corner of the laser deck.
My PS2 has been played so long, let those PS2's run for a minute, usually it takes a minute or two kicking on for those, I have one that takes a while to kick on. If that doesn't work then you just can't do anything, sounds like something is just messed up, when I have a spare PS2 i'll drop it and see what happens for you.
This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?
When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.
So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.
Well, there is 2 switch. one at the back left of the cd tray and one one the reset /power switch.
both sitch have to be close in order for the disk to spin.
If you try this dont forget to put a disk on the spindle as you will start the laser. this is for your safety.
then, if the disk does not spin, then you can try replacing the laser. or at least verify the ribbon cable that is hook to it. if the ribbon cable is not well inside the plug the laser might move but again the disk won t spin.
it is related to each other, the PS2 seem to verify the laser prior to start the spindle so what ever happend to the laser affect the spindle.
and then, if you buy a new laser lens, don't forget to remove the soldering bridge. it is a small ball that is use to avoid static while shiping the lens.
most of the seller will include a small peace of paper with procedure and also there is web site with picture of this soldering bridge.
I replace some of them, and I have to say that the small plastic lock for the ribbon cable to the lens has been an issue and the soldering bridge another one.
but I got most of the PS2 back and running by replacing the laser.
I hope this will help you.
