MI v5/6 question
hey, so ive installed a MI from mod-chip.com (looks pretty legit, same as pics posted), anyway after isntalling it i get the ps2 to boot up and go to the start configuration of the original system, like it was brand new, so had to set time,language, etc. then when i insert a disc it doesnt play then, if you click X it goes back to the browser or for a movie it says dvd player not installed. I havent flashed the chip yet, seeing as hiolding the power on till the blue goes or holding triangle + circle isnt working. does anyone know if its that the modchip needs to be flashed, if the ps2 is maybe bridged (didnt c any tho), or if the modchip is no good? thanks also ive tested both ps1,ps2(cd).ps2(dvd),ps2(backup),and dvds nothin boot ><
tryed both cd-r and cd-rw sony cds to get firmware onto ps2, and neither would get to the installation screen, jsut sits on black after asking the lang,country,time part >< (let it sit for 5min still nothin)
you have a short on the dvd controllerpoints A,B,I
when you connect one of those points to grnd the ps2 resets to the original setup
check all your solderpoints and be sure they don't touch anything
also put a sticker on your modchip to avoid touching of the metal shield
if you do the above i am sure it will work as it should
good luck troubleshooting
thanks, ive already put the tape above the modchip, but ill check my points again. But im a bit confused on the H point. the mod-chip.com says H is for PAL, while the infinitymod.com says H is for NTSC... should I jsut try H, or could it do damage, thanks :D
 o nvm, the diagram doesnt say H for NTSC on the MI site, i wonder which site I saw that at, prolly a clone site.
gah, redid all the points, covered the plate with tape, and still same problem ><, it cant even read disc while i ut them in, i have to start up with the dis in it for it to be able to detected it ><.
nice, it works, all i did was resolder the sx, V,W, and R. thanks for all your help
