Why the hecc is my Playstation 2 doing this?

So I’m having issues with my Playstation 2. For some reason, my PlayStation 2 has weird graphical glitches (Screen flickers colors, goes in and out of signal). It was working perfectly fine before all of this. Is there a fix to this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Are you running with the original, or older cables? A lot of the time, this is cable or TV related. First thing I would try is a replacement cable - these are all over eBay and in many gaming stores. You will not be able to get an OEM Sony one these days (new, at least) but the 3rd party ones work well enough considering the resolution here. If that fails, hook it up to a different TV or if you can do so, try to find a projector to make testing this easier.

If neither works, it’s usually a connector or board issue - commonly bad capacitors.
