Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

2 Answers

Picture problems My PS2 is acting like a television receiving a bad picture: there's no color, the picture is fuzzy and wavy, and there's a static hum accompanying the normal sounds. This occurs whether or not a disk in in the machine. The connection to the television is through a RF cable that transmits the television cable signal without issue, so we know that the problem is neither the cable nor the television but something with the actual console. Anything I can do to fix this?

So the cable connection through the RF adapter is fine?

Is this a Playstation RF Adapter or a standalone modulator?

My guess, if this is indeed a PS RF Adapter then the adapter has gone bad. The reason your cable is working is because that is on the pass through section of the adapter. The adapter does not do any work until power is supplied to it through the PS2.

I recommend replacing the RF adapter.

If you have a Dlp it might be the color wheel.The color wheel is in charge of creating the colors and when it's bad you'll hear humming,buzzing,whirling sounds.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Most RCA repairs on your chassis series require a new IHVT,
AKA flyback transformer . Inside an Integrated HVT are diodes
that can degrade and give the appearance of a bad cap....
Of course, you should check the electrolytics with an ESR
meter, just in case....
