i've been using my ps2 with matrix since march 04. today i put in a backup copy and it wouldnt load. i dont get the Matrix boot screen or anything. as if it isnt there. just rechecked the connections of the mod, but everything seemed fine. the only thing dubious is the ground connection on my laser saver that came with the matrix when i bought it.
and i re-soldered that just to make sure. how can i check the fuses? does anyone have a schematic of where they are on the board?...and i just tried playing an original and all i got was the drive making a weak attempt to spin. so what i have now is a ps2 v12jap that does not recognize the matrix. its as if it wasnt there. and the disk drive wont spin properly. what can i do?
i should add that when i turn on the machine, there is a brief flash of a black screen as if it is engaging the chip but then flashes again and goes back to normal ps2. i never see the boot screen.could i have turned off the chip?
