This is a typical display problem for the PS2. It is usually caused by interference in the signal but can sometimes be caused by the graphics processing chip becoming faulty or something nice and easy. Sometimes it can be a simple TV setting.

First try setting progrssive scan on the console, this may or may not work.

The second thing I would try is getting hold of another TV cable and see if that solves the problem. If it does not then you are probably looking at a more serious problem, one which probably means your PS2 is in need of replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Every time i turn it on it will make a grinding noise ant it wont stop


If the grinding noise occurs while you have a disc inside then it could be the len rubbing against the Cd. This problem normally happens in Slim Line editions of playstation2's. If the disc is blue coated, the playstation2's lens finds it hard to read the disc. Resulting in the lens moving closer to the disc. This is avoidable, try standing up your playstation. Or avoiding Blue coated disc.

PS3 Freezes On The Wavy Lines


I had the same problem.

Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps
