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.

Ps2 slim

Did you try moving the end of the AV cable that's connected to the PS2 system while it's on? It may be a bad connection on the actual system. If it is, that can really only be fixed by Sony.

PS2 Slim - Power Issue

It could be the power cord, but it could also be the connection where the cable connects to the system. The cheapest fix would be to try a new power cord. If it's the slim PS2 then it's only about a $15 fix. If it's the large older PS2, then it's more like a $5 fix for a cord.
blingbdog, do you have the slim or the old large system? Also, let me know if the warranty is still valid (have you had the console for more than 1 year).

PS2 Slim AV/Display/Sound Problems

soo there are other ways to fix this, but its hard to find the parts and depending on your soldering skills may not help. fix one is replacing the av connector on the mother board. thisis not fun as its a very delicate un solder and re solder job. fix 2 just replace the wholemother board,easier but still hard to get parts for. hope this helps

Maybe you need to wait a few days for it to work again, or maybe you can replace the disk drive.

Ps2 slim

You should make sure your cables work on a different PS2. You could have a bad connection somewhere in the cable. If you can you should see if you can get sound out of the optical audio port on the PS2.
