"reading disc..." problems
"reading disc..." problems –
I just installed a green dot matrix infinity on a v4 ps2. Everything went smoothly during the installation. I get the Matrix logo when I boot up the system. It plays original ps2 games with no problem, but when I put in backups they won't load. It stays at the browser/system config screen. I go into the browser and it just keeps showing "Reading disc..." I have tried multiple kinds of media (Sony and Verbatim both burned at 4x). I kept resetting to see if I could get it to work and one time I got the red screen to enter an authentic ps1 or ps2 game.
Is the modchip install to blame? Is the laser going to shit? Is my DVD burner a piece of crap? Is the media the problem?
I need some help, getting very frustrated!
check your dvd points A,B and I
i just looked at the A,B, and I points and they all LOOK fine
i don't have a multimeter right now to check continuity
i did however just notice that the reset wire came off....but i'm not sure if i might have just pulled it off or if it has been like that
could the reset wire be the problem or is it only the A,B,I and i need to get a multimeter?
Your Ps2 will act like no modchip is installed if the reset wire came loose, it is required for the chip to axx the ps2 bios. Also make sure the "a" wire isnt too long, cuz ps2 games wont boot if it is, also check "sx" for ps1 media authentication.
Haven't got any problems, but out of interest, any idea if there's a list of what all the connections are/do?
Matrix Infinity Wire Definitions:
B,G,H,I,Y=CDVD data points
A= CDVD OE (ps2) signal
M-W= PS2 bios points
SX= SCEX OE(psx) signal, for booting psx backups only
i just checked my A, B and I points and they all are soldered correctly according to a continuity check...anything else i should do before i close it up? (besides re-soldering the RST)
anyone, i really don't want to put it back together if there could be something i'm missing
