PS2 component cable issues

08-29-2007, 08:51 PM
I recently got a 19" Magnavox for my room, and I'm trying to hook up my PS2. I bought some rocketfish component cables and hooked it up to the tv, but the picture is really dark and off color. I double checked all the cables and they're in the right places, and it looks normal with the standard cable so I don't think it's the PS2. I messed with the settings but even at 100% brightness it is still way too dark. When I was watching a movie a guy was wearing a white shirt but on the component cables I thought his shirt was purple, so it's pretty bad. It's almost like everything thats supposed to be even a little dark is completely black. My friend said that it might just be that my TV can't handle component signals well, but I'm really hoping there's something because in this state the TV is pretty much worthless. Any ideas?

Have you tried anything else with the component cables, like a DVD player?

Have you tried the PS2 on another TV using component cables?

Could be the TV, could be the PS2, could be a bad cable.
