Several problems with V1 Modded with infinity.
Several problems with V1 Modded with infinity. –
Hello, first time poster here
I have searched this up and cannot seem to find any other threads like this, so here goes. I got my ps2 modded a month ago, SCPH-30001 with a infinity, no software upgrades yet still 1.38? I think. Well, when I got it back it worked for awhile but would not boot after 2 games or so, I would have to let it "cool down" for around 10 hours for it to be able to boot up dvdr/cdrs again. I got that fixed, but now that the games boot up correctly the sound is messed up. There is either no BGM, no SFX, or both for many of my games real and fake (I have tried with my real DMC3 GT4 and Automodellista). Also the loading times are pretty slow I'd say maybe a minute+? Lastly, this may not be the chip's problem but one of my games Narutimetthero3 freezes for an extremely long period of time/freezes indefinately when specials are initiated. Can anyone help me out? Sorry for the long rant
EDIT: Oh one more piece of info, when I first got it when it booted up it said infinity 1.38 underneath the playstation2 bootup sign thing. Now, after I got it back from the shop there is no infinity underneath it. The MC shops warrenty on the ps2 is also over so I do not want to bring it back to that place.

Makubex, well i think on this moment you don't have a Matrix Infinity inside.
I would suggest to go to a Expert installer to let them check it.
If you hold start on boot and it don't say "Infinity Disabled" then your power wires are bad, the chip is dead or somethings shorted. Seems weird that your backups are booting though if no infinity is present. You usually get a RSOD.
If it does disable see if you get your sounds.. then you know its something to do with the chip. IMO its either not wired up correctly, not present, or dead.
Where the console is old you can try to do a forced update on it, I think you have to hammer reset 3 times and let it load, it will boot the matrix backup thing and force a firmware load from the DVD drive. Best to check on this before trying it.
Damn, is there anyway I can check to see if its still a matrix? I'd like to take it to a prof. installer but I'm pretty short on funds atm.
Open up the ps2 a see what chip is inside.
open it and take a pic. the actual matrix uses an Actel chip that don't have the numbers scratched off. If you are weary on taking it apart search the net to find out what version you have, and then follow proper instructions. Be careful when taking off the top of the case, the power/eject buttons are attached to the top and connected to the mainboard via a very fragile ribbon.. remove top from DVD tray side by tilting forward, then lifting from DVD tray side to power button side. Newer versions (V9/10) have the buttons attached to the bottom side.
