I'm sure we can get them working for ya!

 

Sometimes its necessary to adjust the Video Output Settings to play PS2 games as they display in standard def.

 

On the XMB menu go to Settings > Display Settings > Video Output Settings > HDMI > Custom.  From here there are several tick boxes.  Make sure they are all ticked and save the settings.

 

Let me know if this makes a difference.

Ok the next thing to try is using a wired Internet connection instead of a wireless.  Some times not all the data downloads correctly and can cause issues.

Do you still have the AV cables?  If so try connecting with then and see if the issue occurs.  Also if possible try your console on a different TV, again to see if the problem replicates.

Does the console actually crash when you try loading PS2 games? Do you have to force a restart?

I have the exact same problem. It's been affecting only the PS2 classics I've downloaded, Persona 3 FES and Harvest Moon A wonderful Life Special Edition. I haven't been able to get either to work with any combination of tv/cables. I've also called PS3 support numerous times and they have been unable to help me or give me a refund.

Ok guys a few questions:

 

1) Were the games working fine before, and then suddenly stop working?

2) Under 'Game Setting' are PS- Upscaler and PS- Smoothing both turned on?

3) What cables are you using, and what have you tried?

4) What games are affected?

5) Is the screen blank, or is there an error message?

 

If I can take a bit more information I will raise it from my side to look into.

 

Thanks,

 

Rabid
