Matrix Infinity Not Playing Backup DVD's
Matrix Infinity Not Playing Backup DVD's –
I recently modded a V5 PS2 with the Matrix infinity chip. I had also replaced the laser with a brand spanking new one.
I was able to play PS2 DVD originals, PS2 CD backups, PS1 originals and PS1 backups. But I was unable to play PS2 DVD backups.
I believed this to be a problem with my mod, so I removed and refitted the modchip, bought another PS2 that had a faulty laser (as my PS2 psu decided to die now ), and used the motherboard from that.
Still I could play any discs, except DVD backups.
The solution in the end was to replace the laser again, as for some reason my new laser would not play DVD backups. I even resorted to tweaking the laser pot to try to get it to work, but still no luck.
I'm writing this just for information incase someone has the same problem I had, and keeps blaming the mod, when it is the laser causing the problem.
If your old laser wasn't booting dvd-r then maybe it wasn't a brand new laser.
Well I bought it from gameconsolehk on ebay, I know there are a lot of refurbished lasers on ebay, but this was advertised as new and came in a proper PS2 laser box, and did appear to be brand new.
Strangely enough the working laser is from the PS2 I bought off ebay, which was sold with a faulty laser.
Bought 3 different type of laser of that guy you mention.
No probs for me though.
Maybe you had some bad luck ? Bad production or something>i dunno.
For your info bought a:
and full optical block KHS-430 PVR802W
Guess i'm lucky..
