80GB won't play PS2 games

I got my 80GB PS3 in June of this year. It has worked well for a few months. But now it won't play any PS2 games. All of the games I have worked. Whenever I try to play a game, the screen goes black and it seems to freeze. My controller doesn't work either. When I play PS3 games, the PS button doesn't work either. Help me!!!

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

The reason why ur ps3 40gb wont run ps2 games is because its only a 40gb. If u had a 80gb ps3 then u could play ps2 games.

PS3 80gb from Singapore will not play ps2 games Wrong region displayed


I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.
