Issues[edit | edit source]

No video output with component cable

When using a component cable make sure to set "Component Video Out" to "Y Cb/Pb Cr/Pr" in the PS2 system configuration (you can do this by temporarily connecting back the RGB cable or by navigating blindly in the PS2 menu).

If a modchip is installed this may make no difference: some modchips have a so-called "greenscreen fix" for DVD playback, which basically forces the PS2 to only output RGB to avoid a green screen when playing DVDs.

Unfortunatly modchips diagrams are easy to find but there is no documentation for what each wire is needed for.

If you cannot find the rsponsible wire, fully removing the modchip of course fixes this problem too.
