    My PS2 is giving me a rather annoying problem, it locks into 4:3 letterbox mode when i play DVD's on it, this prevents me from using the enhanced widescreen mode on my tv. has anyone encountered this problem and know how to get around it? I contacted sony and they said thats all you can do cause it wasent designed as a primary DVD player.

    I have of course set my PS2 to 16x9 mode, but once the dvd is playing if i hit the select button and go to the settings it is locked into 4:3 letterbox and wont let me change it.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If I understand your problem, what you need to do is hit stop (when you hit play later, it will resume from where you stopped), THEN change the aspect ratio. It will not remember the 16:9 setting unless you eject the DVD before powering down. Odd but true.
