Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

2 Answers

Ps2 slim won't start, plays intro sound and TV screen goes blank

I turn on the console: the disc spins, the led is on, the boot sound is played, but the screen remains blank. No further sounds are played as well (e.g. the Browser sound or the game's sound). The cable appears fine (since it plays the console boot sound).

Ps2 slim new modded: black screen


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.
Hope this helps.

Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Ps2 slim doesn't play color. i beg you.


I have only seen this when the PS2 slim has been modded. What I do when this happens is hook the PS2 slim to a HD TV. This clears up the color. The modchip seems to drain the video power low enough that the normal TV with composite connection cannot resolve the signal. The only way to repair this is to get a new motherboard that is not modchipped. IF it is not modded, you still need a new motherbaord. Buy a broken will not read discs PS2 slim with that is NTSC or PAL whichever you use. Exchange the motherboards. You also need to be sure the Broken PS2 slim will boot up, and possibly read CD's but not Games.

PS2 Slim will not play


hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.
