Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
My TV is broken but my computer has multi media (including TV) capability. How do I (in simple terms that even a technophobe like me can understand) connect my Playstation 2 to my computer/monitor so I can play my games on it?
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
