Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Playstation 2 Problem

Ok, so I just purchased a used PS2 from ebay and looks like i have been sent a turkey. Anyway whilst i try and sort this out, i wondered if there was an easy fix. The console boots up and loads games, however with all cables plugged in i have an intermittent picture on the screen. I get to next to no picture whilst the system is loading. Once the game starts to load i get a picture, however if the game has a section or major screen change the picture goes and then (most of the time) come back again. Any suggestions welcome !

Sounds to me like the graphics processor or power supply is almost dead. The system uses extra power when loading, taking away resources from the rest of the system. This will cause, among other things, reduced video output. Sadly, I don't believe there is a fix for this beyond replacing the unit. :( There is a *slight* chance, however, that a cable near the CD rom has come loose and the motions of the drive vibrate the cable into poor connectivity but somehow I don't think this is the case. Hope this helps some.

How can i browse on my ps2

Hi.

You need to have a router connected to the internet.
You need to purchase a Play Station 2 network disc, commonly available on Ebay or in second hand game shops.
Unless you have a PS2 with network you will need to buy also a network adapter, also available on Ebay
You need to plug a network cable from PS to router and to configure connection, then you can browse the Internet.

see this link for more detailed explanation: Playstation 2 Setup Guide

I bought a used PS 2. I get to the browser screen but it's not reading the game I put in.

Try other games and music cd's. If the ps2 isn't reading any discs you put in, then the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. Look on Ebay for a ps2 laser for thru google shopping.

Ps2 only plays ps1 games not ps2 what can i do?

The laser is probably going out and will need to be replaced. Lasers can be purchased online or on ebay. You will need to know which laser is in your unit before ordering. Not all PS2's use the same laser.
