My Ps2 Stops at Matrix Logo Screen
My Ps2 Stops at Matrix Logo Screen –
I just bought a second hand Ps2 with modchip matrix infinity 2 month ago
I tried to add new games and delete some using winhiip. I did not do anything but delete and add new images. I also clicked repair as winhiip ask me to do it before opening the HDD
Here comes my problem, when I connect my HDD back into my network adapter and into my PS2 and start the console. It shows the matrix logo as usual but then it either stays at the matrix logo or into a blank screen.
Can anyone tell me what could be the problem? I did a research on the net and some say the boot,elf or something like that is corrupted when I use winhiip and suggesting to install it again by burning a software into a CD and install it into the ps2
The problem is, my Ps2 Lens is not working anymore.
Hope someone pass by here and shed some light.
did you set the Jumpers to Master ?
HI mccbebz –
Hi.mccbebz,It seems like boot.elf problem in your ps2.Press R1 before starting ps2 on,If you have boot.elf file loaded in Ps2 memmory card,Otherwise press L1 before starting Ps2 on If you have boot.elf file loaded in Ps2 hdd.And last go to sks apps and download fresh boot. elf file and load it via winhipp to your hdd.Enjoy....

Reason: some writing error
amp2006 Jumpers are already set to Masters from the beginning, I did not touch anything other than adding new images using winhiip
imran I tried pressing R1 as well as L1 to no avail, I also checked Matrix configuration system and the Boot feature is already set to DEV2 whcih I believe booting in a HDD, Not sure what you meant by downloading a new boot,elf or uLaunchELF? I tried to Extract the uLaunchElf file I downloaded and saw a BOOT,ELF file however, I can't seem to find an option in Winhiip on copying and pasting it into the HDD,
Thanks for the Help, Hope there's still more ways to fix this, Again, my PS2 lens is not working anymore so I'm asking instructions using a PC
try to install Dev2 installer again .
amp2006, I'm actually not sure on how to do that.. When I bought this, the owner said that it will automatically boot OPL then I can just choose a game listed,
naturally, when I play my ps2, I'll just switch on the ps2 and matrix logo shows and then OPL logo and then the lists of games.
He also told me that I can just use winhiip to add games.
Additionally, My ps2 Lenses is not working anymore. I guess theres no way of fixing this unless I have a working lenses.
if you are able to run uLaunchELF then its easy .
Hi mccbebz,Open winhipp ,there is help menu in it .There is full tutorial of how copy games to ps2 hdd,How to copy iso images to ps2 hdd,bla bla..
thats not his problem dude .his PS2 freezes at Matrix Logo or black screen .
@mccbebz: It seems that your PS2 doesn't have any boot file. For Matrix modchip, there are two options: boot from memory card (DEV1) or boot from HDD (DEV2).
For booting off MC you just need a file named BOOT.ELF (uppercase) placed inside a folder called BOOT (uppercase). The path will be MC0:/BOOT/BOOT.ELF. Then press "R1" during the boot or setup "DEV1 boot mode" in the Matrix configs. "BOOT.ELF" file can be any ELF you want: HD Loader, OPL, uLaunchELF... That's the easiest way.
For booting off HDD you'll need a DEV2 Installer. Once installed press "L1" during the boot or setup "DEV2 boot mode" in the Matrix configs
In both cases you have to be able to run uLaunchELF in some way. If your PS2 doesn't read discs, find another modded PS2 which is capable of reading discs and by using uLaunchELF install BOOT.ELF in your MC.
