Most monitors only have VGA or DVI inputs. the PS2 uses either a composite or a component connector. while the audio cables may be able to be connected fine, it generally isn't feasible to be able to connect the video without a conversion.

If there actually is a connector on the monitor, it may be as simple as switching inputs. there is usually an option on the front panel to switch sources if there are multiple inputs.

hope that helps :)

What you should try at this point is shut everything down, Unplug your desktop, hook it back up to tour moniter and boot. If you now get a picture, go to your device manger and click on display adaptors. If you have more than one selection. choose your monitor. Let me know if this works.

With the ps3 already on standby, hold the standby button with the television on the correct channel until the display shows, it will take quite some time. Then change your setup accordingly.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Monitor blinks no image


first you need to isolate the problem to either the computer or the moniter. I would sugust that you hook a know good moniter to the compter and go from there. If the other moniter works then you have a moniter issue aif not chek the video card in the computer. good luck

Playstation 2 slimline


Hi Crazymatt,

You need to connect to the Cablemodem or have a router that will allow connection for both your PS2 and your computer. Connecting to your computer does not allow a path to the internet for your PS2.

Connect Playstation 2 to computer monitor


try going to your local radioshack and asking for a cable to do it. Tell them it needs to be "double male" infering that the piece sticks into another part instead of bieng stuck into. Then tell them one end needs to be "RCA cables" (the red white and yellow ones) and the other end needs to be a computer moniter cable. There are several types of moniter cables you can use, look in the back of your moniter to see what you have. There should be writing that says any 1 of the following "s video in", "dv in" "video in" etc. ask the radioshack man to get the non RCA side of the cable to have one of these on it. If you need to, it helps to take a picture of the back of the moniter where all the input plugs are, and show it to the radio shack man, he can probably help decide which cable to use. Once you buy the cable, plug the red yellow and white side into the red yellow and white holes respectively on the PS2, and the moniter cable into the moniter. Turn on the moniter and the PS2 and... Voila. PS You may need to take out the cable connecting the moniter to the PC to put in the new radioshck cable. I hope this works for you-BCA
