[Answered] PS3 CECH-A01 not playing PS2 games help?
I have a ps3 cech-ao1 that's not playin ps2 games. It recognizes it has a ps2 game but when I push X to play it , all I get is a black screen and have to turn off ps3 by holding the power button. The blu ray drive plays everything fine just won't load ps2 games. Is there something that I'm doing wrong or what could be wrong?
This is the first PS3 generation console, its 20GB & it has backwards compatibility but lately $ony removed this feature in their latest firmwares so this means you have a firmware 04.xx or above, i think you need to be on 3.20 FW or lower to play PS2 games.
How did you obtain this info? stop saying rubbish. I have 2 backwards compatible consoles on 4.46 and works like a charm with all ps2 games, so it's either faulty drive or firmware problem try to update to newest CFW 4.46 I recommend rogero or make a recovery mode and reinstall CFW.
And again you are wrong were you are taking this BS from, 40/80gb fat consoles have been cut and stripped from BC compatibility
pimix2009 After swap you need to remarry cd/dvd/bd drive something that can't be done on OFW , is this console was on cfw any time in life ?
have you try to play ps2 classics did they work , your console is hardware capable it has built in EE/GS so it should work , try to downgrade and reinstall FW as on OFW there is no recovery mode any more , as far it goes it could be faulty cd/dvd/bd drive but with out remarry hard to tell.
