    It cant be pal coz its a brand new console.
    ya,i forgot to tell dat the game HITMAN is working,its got 2 options of PAL & NTSC,so when i choose PAL it works properly but when i choose NTSC it gives me that problem,so i think its coz of the PAL & NTSC difference,i just wished dat all the games had such options.
    Plz gimme a possible solution for this.
    Can i convert those NTSC dvd's to PAL in anyway so that it will work........?

Hi there. Have you tried another set of cables ? They might be the issue. Other than that, check for a solid connection on the back of the TV where the cables are connected, and also on the PS2 itself. You might wanna try on another tv if it's possible for you. If the issue is still there with another A/V cable, on another tv, and if the cables are connected firmly, the problem can be the video output controller on the PS2 mainboard that is going nuts. I've seen a such issue once, and the PS2 mainboard was going bad slowly. Solution was to, unfortunately, replace the PS2 :| Hope that helps, cheebster.

    That should do it ! Thanks, cheebster.

    Oh, and by the way.. the console needs to be modded, else it won't run the NTSC backups that you've converted to pal. Hope it has a modchip already ? :)

How to fix ps2 display settings

You can adjust screen display settings while playing PlayStation 2. Press the PS button on the Wireless Controller during gameplay and then select [Settings], adjust the following settings. Screen Mode Normal: Set to upscale and display at a size that matches the screen size. Full Screen: Set to upscale and display at full screen by changing proportions and stretching the image. This setting can be selected only when [Normal] or [Full Screen] is selected under Settings > [Game Settings] > [PS / PS2 Upscaler].

The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:


Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!

Can't display Pal on My Sony 57" KP-57WS520

There are probably a few problems here. What are you using to play the disc? Some NTSC players will "play" a PAL disc but interpret it as NTSC with the symptom you are describing. You need a DVD player that will play PAL. Many of those will output NTSC directly when set up to do so. The other alternative is to have a PAL compatible player that will output PAL into the converter. To narrow this down specifically, please post the model numbers and the connection scheme for your equipment. Once I understand your current setup, I should be able to describe a method to get this to work for you.

HD drive problem

For your PS2 to play in HD you need to to have HD cables for that. You can buy these at your local wal-mart. You can't just hook up regular cables for it. Make sure your T.V. is HD too.

Problem displaying nintendo wii graphics

After more checking around I found out this is not an uncommon problem with the wii. Apparently there is a design flaw that causes the graphics card to overheat, which creates various types of distortion. It may have something to do with using wiiconnect24. I am sending my wii back to nintendo for repairs.

PS2 Slim will not play

hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.
