PS2 not Booting, no sound and a black screen HELP PLEASE

6 Replies 1,905 Views Created 14-01-2009

Hi, ive got an un-modifyed slimline PS2 and its suddenly stopped working.

When you turn it on, you can hear the the disk spinning and the lazer scanning, however you get no sound and no picture, just a black TV screen.

 

If you turn it on with no disk installed, you just get the same black screen (no boot screen).

 

Ive tryed a new AV cable and its no diffrent.

 

It appears to be sending some form of an AV signel to the TV as befor the PS2 is turned on the TV screen is blue and says no AV signel, turn the PS2 on and the TV goes black.

 

Any body got any clues or ideas as to the possable cause, or is now only any use as a paper weight!!!!

I would have thought this was a problem with the cable/tv and not the actual console, try it on a different TV.

Also tryed it with my RGB lead from my PS3 and no picture / sound.

 

My Son has a new PS2, whick works great on his tv, and guess remove the cable from his PS2 and plug it into the back of mine, and guess no picture / sound

It might just be that the console has had it and the display chips etc have just broken.

Don't quote me though.

Make sure you check ALL the AV channels, my tv has about 6 and im always on the wrong one.
Okami and Resi 4 should have been one game...
Hmmm, what about Shin Megami Tensei : DDS
