PS2 in black & white?

We bought our PS2 approx 3-4 years ago, and had no problems with it. Recently, we tried another game that should be in color and only get black and white. We tried the other disks as well that prev worked in color, and also only black and white. Any suggestions?

    The model is SCPH-39001. We are going to try and get new cables to connect to the TV. We replaced one set already, because the cord got damaged, but I don't remember if it was black and white with the old ones as well. Thanks for any input.

    some part of the wire or the a/v connector is failing... originally it was just the blue that was going out in my picture (I'm using component)... but lately it's been ALL color. I just have a gray image. and jiggling it doesn't even restore the other colors, it just makes it lose signal entirely.

Hello Staubs, please look at the back side. There should be a sticker with the model (for example SCPH3XXXX). So please, which model is it? Thank you, Arpad

    Hello Staubs,

    the cause of your trouble could be either CN201 or the analog video encoder integrated circuit. Anyway you should contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service for PlayStation repairs.

    Best regards,
    Arpad

If they have a purple bottom, they will not play on your PS2 if it's that old. Try taking some canned air to it. Otherwise, it's the PS2 itself. Invest in a PS3, you'll be very happy.

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading


Hmmmmm...
That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

PS2 screen won't show on tv set to game


try to trouble shoot if the wire is the problem, how? remove the 3 colored wires from the tv and ps2 then try to use the red color instead of yellow to the video from tv and ps2 (both red) temporarily do not use the yellow color. once a picture appears use now the white for the audio (both white) for left audio once there is a sound you may try the yellow for the right audio. i hope this will help you and hear a positve reply from you.
