Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

My son's ps2 has sound but does not have any video. The machine worked fine until I moved the t.v. with the PS2 attached. What can we do to fix this problem? Is it the laser?

Hello, I would exclude a laser problem. It looks like this is a cable problem instead. First check if the TV cable is well plugged both to PS2 and TV. Second, the cable could have been damaged while you were moving the TV, if you don't get results with the above solution, i'd suggest to get a new one at a local retailer, a PS2 RGB cable will cost just few bucks, but before buying something, I'd try the PS2 on a second TV, if have the chance. Good Luck! Peter

    Well,
    as you've already tried the most common solutions, i would unfortunately say that the PS2 video plug has been broken and you should contact Sony technical support. Be aware that a new PS2 will cost less than 100 USD, so ask for the cost before sending it to them.
    Just for curiosity's sake you may try another PS2 on the same TVs with the same tv cables you're using
    I'm sorry my solutions didn't help, and you brought me just one thumb.
    Good luck,
    Peter

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

My son played his Rock Band 2 on my brother's PS2 and it played fine. He then bought his own PS2 and could never get it to play. He has a Tiger Woods game that works fine on both games. Both machines are...


Is tiger woods a blue disc or silver?

The silver discs are DVD and the Blue ones are CD (same with the black PSOne discs). If Tiger woods is a CD then your DVD laser could be out.

You can try to clean the lasers lens and see if that helps, but if you have jsut got that machine you should take that back.

Two possible solutions. REplace the motherboard yourself. Send the PS2 to www.playstationclinic.com. I run the Playstation Clnic, and can replace your motherboard for you. This problem sounds like you actually bricked a PS2. unheard of.

DVD-videos won't play, games do


If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps: 1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red. 2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work. ________________________________________________ If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.
