PS2 Slim AV/Display/Sound Problems

Ok, so I have a PS2 right now with no display, the AV cable is definately working, I'm not so sure about the port itself or the video processor. The screen flashes when I turn the unit on, and I got sound once, but now I get no sound and a black screen (after the flashing). Anyone else seen this happen or have any idea what's going on?

Soo there are other ways to fix this, but its hard to find the parts and depending on your soldering skills may not help. fix one is replacing the av connector on the mother board. thisis not fun as its a very delicate un solder and re solder job. fix 2 just replace the wholemother board,easier but still hard to get parts for. hope this helps

You problem is that your picture cable is not connected properley.see the cable next to the power push it in .now turn it on.if it still does not work try pushing that cable in while the ps2 is on.if that doesnt workcheck the colour of the must be white in white and yellow in yellow or yellow in red for different tvs. if that doesnt work the person you bought it off rippped you off.

hope it works

Check the AV HDMI cables on the back of the tv. You may have the cable in the wrong sockets. Then try turning on the PS 2.

I have a ps2 with sound but no picture how do i fix that

Does it display "no signal"? or can you feel a change in the black screen when u turn on the machine?
1- Check that the cables are plugged correctly, from what I remember I used to experience the same problem when the AV cable is half plugged into the PS2.
2- Make sure that your region (NTSC or PAL) is the correct one in your TV. That is by going to MENU, then Color settings.

I would like to know how to tune a PS2 into a mikomi portablt tv without loosing any other channel. So I can use my PS2 on channel 6?

Why don't you use the tulp wire to connect on AV3 port.
Yellow= Video Red= the sound cable right and White is the
sound cable left.

You can also use an scart adapter with tulps connection.
When you want to play PSP choose the AV port where you
did connected the the tulp conection.

This will work!

Ps2 slim

You should make sure your cables work on a different PS2. You could have a bad connection somewhere in the cable. If you can you should see if you can get sound out of the optical audio port on the PS2.
