PlayStation 2 Component Cables don't work

Recommended Posts


I just bought some PS2 component cables for my SCPH-39001 PS2. My TV is a Philips 46PP9302 Epic 46" Digital Widescreen HDTV-Ready TV.

My PS2 is all set to use component cable and all I get is the sound. The picture that shows up is a bunch of blurry lines the go up. The lines are the proper colors.

Can anyone tell me what I need to make these cables work?

Hook up the normal set of A/V cables to the PS2, go into system configuration and make sure "Component Video Out" is set to Y Cb/Pb Cr/Pr and NOT RGB, that might be your problem.

just make sure that your component input actually supports progressive. some tvs have ypbpr and ycbcr.

Just plugging in component cables to the PS2 doesn't make the output 480P, its 480i until you enable 480P in a game that supports it. So I don't see why it would matter if the input supports progressive scan. My SCPH-30001 works perfectly with my sony component cables. Maybe there is a compatability issue with your tv? If your ps2 is set to component in the interface maybe you could go to an electronics store, act like you are interested in a new tv and bring the ps2 with components along to test some tvs.

My component cables also work on my SCPH-70012 (my older PS2 stopped reading cd games and newer dvd games...grumble).
