Having a bit of trouble Freezing on a V9 with a MI
Having a bit of trouble Freezing on a V9 with a MI –
I installed a MI for a customer and then sent it up to canada. It says it worked perfect when he got it. Now about a week and a half later today i get a email from him saying this
"having a bit of a problem with the PS2.. it has frozen on me twice now and nothing I can do except turn it off cold. Then after I restart it it doesn't get past the "Matrix" screen until 4-5 tries.. it has happened with both an original ps2 game and a backup.
anything I can do?"
I would think it is a couple of things. The laser was good as new. I told him to only use high quality DVD media. I would think that would be the problem except for one thing. He says it doesnt get past the matrix screen until 4-5 tries. This makes me think that the modchip is overheating or something. I dont know. Has anyone heard of this? thanks for the help
I am not sure if this is the problem but did you use thick wire for 3.3v and gnd ? If I were you I would tell him to ship it back and then you can take a look at it and maybe re install it etc.. from experience I wouldn't tell the customer to open up the console and take a look.

Well it would be cheaper if he ships it to me I am in Burnaby, BC, Canada. If you want me to do it just pm me thanks. Also I had a weird problem like this before when I installed a Crystal Chip v1.1 he had it for 1 week and it was fine then one day backups would not boot but he can still get into bootmanager..
anyone else? i wonder if the modchip can overheat..
Does anyone know whats wrong? i got another message today
"it keeps freezing on me, even with original games, it's really frustrating me. I'll play for 2 mins and then it freezes and I can't even get past the Matrix screen even if I reboot the ps2 40 times. I just have to wait and maybe i'll get lucky later.. (doesn't always work later either)
I cleaned the game I was using and it still did it right after. I think there could be something broken with the chip inside, hence the little piece moving around. Maybe you could guide me into looking into that? never opened a ps2 before.
is the fan still working? maybe there's a suspect soldering joint which is sensative to heat. difficult to say without looking at the mod.
No I don't think an infinity is that crappy. Never had a problem with overheating before.

Ask him to reflash the firmware. That might be the problem. Update to the latest firmware.
it is 1.88, i flashed it before it sent it off. i wonder if reflashing would work. maybe have him try a older version
i will update this thread
