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.

Re: Ps2 classics not working

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.

Re: Ps2 classics not working

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

Are you connecting directly to a router or a modem?
