I have matrix infinity 1.5.4 (displayed on boot with logo)
I have ps2 black slimline SCPH-70002 PAL
Massive Problems I've been facing.
*When I try to flash 1.5.4 to 1.8.8 it's stuck on "press start".
*I can only play US games, I can't play PS1, DVDs, BACKUP's.(very important to me, and plus my backups worked on my both of my firiend's ps2 which are modded.)
*When I change settings in matrix config menu(circle+triangle, during boot) and press start to save settings, it locks up on me
*When I try to run backed up games it goes "please insert playstion disc blah blah blah"
Note**brought my ps2 slimline from Indonesia(poor country) cause its cheaper and its pre-modded. All the games they sold there are US (NTSC).
**I've also installed Infinity Manager v1.02 to the mem card
1. is my matrix a fake? or bad just soldering?=/
2. is my ps2 damaged? because of my failed attempts to flash, etc?
3. If it is a fake, should I buy a new one? which is better infinity or ripper3 I've heard they are both good
4. I also I want my LCD moniter 15'' to act as my tv screen for my ps2 what do I need to buy or do, etc?
5. what i want my ps2 to do is to play backed up games, pal and ps1 games!
6.I really want a quality mod-chip this time? I don't have a creadit card and my parent'ts won't buy stuff of the net for me , so can I trust those advertisements about mod chip installments on the trading post (live in australia)
thanks and please give suggestions!
