Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 2 Problems!

I got a Ps2 from Best Buy in Febuary, and it has worked perfectly up until now. I turned it on a few days ago and the picture of the TV was completely distorted. The picture was dark and was scrolling and jiggling all over the screen, and the Ps2 was making unusual noises. It has never been dropped, or ever moved since I bought it. I tried re-hooking all of the cables up to the TV again and rebooting the system with different games and memory cards. Nothing has happened. I need some help and I also need to know if I need to bring it in for repairs. Thanks!!!

Why won't my Vizio 42" LCD turn on?


Check and replace damaged component/s at it main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis.

JVC AV-48WP30 problem starting up


The old video card has seen better days, methinks. All those symptoms lead one to conclude it needs a 'substitute' to enter the field, or call a long TV time out(too much pro and super bowl isms, eh?)..

Are you planning on doing this yourself?

MY SHARP LCD TV HAS PERFECT SOUND BUT WHEN WE TURN IT ON THERES NO PICTURE JUST RANDOM RED LINES.IF WE TURN IT ON AND OFF THEN THE PICTURE WILL EVENTUALLY RESUME


I don't have a solution, but the same thing happened to ours. To sidestep the problem, I just left it on 24/7. Eventually (three days ago) it just stopped working completely.

50 inch Sanyo Vizon Plasma TV. Has sound but no picture for last few days. 2 years old


This set has LG insides, it will have failed on either the Y-Sustain PCB or the Z-Sustain PCB.

Quite common.

Repair estimates should be $250 - £350 depending on which has failed.

Stick it on eBay, it will fetch good money faulty.

Black screen and no sound


I realized that there is a 90 day warrantee on parts and a 30 day limited warrantee on labor for the  repairs that were done. As I stated, the original problem was the picture shrinking after a few minutes of the set being on. The repair firm took my control board with them. When they came back to install the repaired control board in my set there was a load spark during the installation, after which I had a black screen and no sound.  The repair firm took my set them and installed a "CAP Kit", a STRM6511, and a "D1881". The set worked perfectly until two days ago.
I called the repair firm an they are coming out this Thursday to check out my TV.   I am hoping the problem is related to the failure of one of the parts installed to fix a similar problem which occurred after the sparking incident.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
