Video Game Repair/bent and broken playstaion2 av multi out cable


how can I fix a playstaition 2 av multi cable

Gday Zack,

If it the cable (One of those multi unit squids) then the best way of fixing it is throwing it out and buying a new/second hand one.  Those are usually molded in shape and usually hard to pull to pieces to fix, you could try and bend the plug the other way but about 95% of the time it will fail.

If you are referring to the jack in the on the back of the PS2 then you could try bending it back in place and soldering it into place. But it quite tricky and unfortunately the solder work is quite fine and hard to do.  The Jack is the motherboard, you could try getting the same unit and swapping boards.

Hope this helps

I can answer questions on Arcade or Home Console repair or modification.


Repair, rewire, modification, rebuild, restore. (I repair numerous business and private arcade/pinball machines in my area of the state. I partner with a shop that stocks older console based systems and games, I am the one that repairs them back to working order.)

Have been building, customizing and repairing all types of arcade games since 2004. I have been repairing and modifying video games since the late 80's. (Most of my knowledge is self learnt and following others that have trailblazed in the industry.)
