Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

No Picture after hooking up PS2

I didn't accept you solution since it was a question and there was no place to reply to your question. I didn't want to end our communication. I have Video 2 in the front of the TV with 3 ports- red, white and yellow. In the back of the tv there are 5. 2 Red, 2 White and 1 yellow. I hope its something simple! Thank you for your fast reply to my problem.

    Yes, DVD/VCR works on video 1 and PS2 works on Video 2 and I can switch between them. This is a bit confusing since I am unsure where I should be posting my reponses! Thanks.

    I have a coax (white cable with thin needle and screw connection- I'm guessing) going from the tv to the cable box and from the cable box to the cable hook up line. All connections are tight and fine. I did not have the DVD/VCR hooked up when the problem occured although I did have it connected before I put in the PS2. The cable was not running through the DVD/VCR- I dont think. Sorry.

  • PandaLdy6 Jul 27, 2008

    ok- I think it is a case of too many look-alike cables and ins and outs in a tight, cramped space- difficult to get in and really check it out.. I got it working. When disconnecting my DVD/VCR I removed the wrong cable. Seems there was no connection from the cable box to the tv! HAHAHA. I knew it was something stupid and simple. Happy that it was! Standby while I put everything back and see if its all okay. :) Thank you !

    Thank you . All is well now. Whew- glad it was nothing really wrong!. Excellent service. Havea good night/day.

    will you be able to get the model number of your TV? so that i will be able to check the limitations of the unit.

    if you use the yellow ports from the front and both at the back then plug them to your PS2 or DVD player or VCR, can you view them one by one by switching video sources on your TV?

    reason why i asked is that you may get a conflict because there is a possibility that the ports have the same terminal, this is common to old TV because i have one.

  • marlon john madrid

    well both will do, you can post your responses here, i have lots and lots of time to answer you.

    so switching from Video 1 and Video 2 is working, thats goos, now, your cable line for the cable TV, does it go through a Coaxial port on the TV or going through a VCR?

    if it is going through a VCR you have to set that to channel 3 or 4, when it is turned on.

    if it is going through a Coax port, will you unscrew the cable line, then inspect if you will be able to feel a movement on the port of you try to move it left to right? if you feel a movement check if you will be able to tighten the screw that keeps the coax port in place to the TV.

    okay, so all we need to do is reprogram your channeling, remove the RCA cables or turn off the DVD/VCR and PS2, leaving the coax cable in. now open a regular TV channel, using your remote, go to your TV's menu, then go to channel programming, select auto then let it finish scanning for channels, once you are done, try to plug the ps2 back, play a game or a movie, then switch back to your regular cable channel.

    if this did not solve the issue, and you still have the snow, while the PS2 is turned on and playing, go back to a regular channel (which is snow) then reprogram you channels again, let me know if your TV will be able to scan when the PS2 is plugged in and playing

Can you hook a line straight from your laptop to the ps2 and be able to play online using a wiffi connection from the laptop

not unless you do some serious modding to your ps2 and your laptop to accept the wifi capability. you can just buy a wifi card for your ps2. since ps2 is outdated it is extremely cheap!!

I'm trying to hook my PS2 up to my Digital Lifestyle tv. When I hook up the PS2, I can get a black and white image, but I can't get sound or color...

You may be connecting your PS2 with a different cable connection than you used previously.  If this is the case, reconnect the PS2 to the last television that it worked on and change the video connection settings to what your next television is using.  Then power the PS2 down and move it to the next television.  The picture should be fine now.

I can't get online with my psp2

From the looks of the picture it is a PS2. To connect to the internet for online gaming(you cannot surf the web with a PS2) you simply need to buy a "PS2 Network Adapter". It hooks to the back of your PS2 system behind the removable plate, and you connect either a standard phone line, or an Ethernet cable into it. A bonus is that there are no monthly payments like the XBOX system, so all you have to do is buy the adapter and you are set.

Here is a link to what you need, but you can by it from many places(best buy, walmart, ect...)

Just buy that adapter and follow the instructions that come with it. I will have to warn you though, the PS2 online community is not linked to the PS3 online community, so there may not be many players to play against since most of them do not use the PS2 online anymore.
