Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
it appears that your GPU ( Graphics chip ) Has burnt out.
Comon problem with PS2s. especially if they,re about 2 years plus old. it,s not worth a repair. this will cost you about £120+ better to get either a new motherboard or even purchase a new console. if it,s been played for a couple of years or more, then you,ve had the moneys worth out of it.
If it,s out of warranty, and you decide to strip it down for investigation. look at the graphics chip, it,ll have a burn mark on 1 corner.
