I'm in the middle of building my first portable... I realise PS2 is advised against but hey what the heck right? Anyway I've got the console running on a 7.5 sony camera battery, I've changed out the old Volt regulator to a low drop out one. For the speakers I plan to use a set of ipod fold up ones that run on 6/5 volts. I bought a cheap 7inch screen to use for the display, But this is where the problem started, playing a PS2 game worked no problem... But I tried a PSone game and the screen started getting interference in the lower left corner that's if the PS2 read the game at all. At first I thought it was a problem with the PS2 so I played it through my TV via the AV cable, no interference. So I connected the monitor back up and tried playing the game ignoring the interference... After about an hour there was smoke coming from one of the capacitors! I think one of the coils on the back breaking was the cause of the over heat... Now I'm not sure what to do about buying a new screen I need something that can handle both PS1&2 games... Would I be better off going for one that can handle HDMI and using an adaptor or some other kind of setup? Here's a picture of the old screen board... It was the cap and coil in the top right that were on fire. So I don't know if the cap was the cause of the interference or if it was just the PS2 not communicating with the screen, like I said the Ps2 games worked fine but their a different format aren't they?
