V12 with MI 1.75 will not play backups.
V12 with MI 1.75 will not play backups. –
I have no idea..
I checked and rechecked. Tested and retested all my points, Every thing seems fine. My point A Lead came off, I tested a poit that is connected, the resistence is the same it's on well. Points BHGI are all on the board properly and securely. Cleaned wiuth acid and tested, 100% pass.. I have the Blue dot MI updated to 1.75.
It boots into Matrix system, I know the chip is installed cause i get Playstation 2 with the V1.75 in the right and "Matrix" on the left.
It boots everything BUT backups. It's a new laser with a new MB.
I have no ideas!!!
Media i am using..
Verbatim +R with advanced AZO
Sony +R with AccuCore
.. I dunno...
Do they play +R 's? I've always burnt on DVD-R's for all my backups since the XBox usually like them better depending on the drive, so I've never bought +R's. Other than that, don't know. Maybe a pic of the install will help people see if there is anything out of wack.
+r works fine. If it doesn't boot backups then your chip isn't properly installed. Either that or the chip is bad, I haven't had a bad Matrix Infinity yet.
But the chip still works... I can get into the Matrix System, I see the PS2 splash screen with the firmware V and Logo...
Those will come up if the bios wires are soldered properly as well as power and ground. The ones that affect wheather it will load burnt disc's or not, are the CD/DVD pins. For the infinity, that's the BHGI points as well as A and probally Y. Try playing a burnt DVD movie on the same media and see that the new laser you put in is recognizing burnt DVD's discs. If it plays a burnt DVD movie, than check and recheck the above points I mentioned. Use a multimeter and test for continuity on the point from the motherboard and the point soldered on the chip or even to the actel chip itself. I've had the odd time where a wire was snapped inside and you couldn't see but everything worked fine, so I got out the multimeter and found the wire was no good. Now, after testing with a burnt DVD movie, testing the points with a multimeter is my second step. If it doesn't play a burnt DVD movie, than its more than likey a laser issue. Also, since it's a version 12, did you do any laser fix on it at all? If so, reverse the fix and try again. Other than that, try another chip, post some pics of your install, try another firmware, try a older firmware, kick it, yell it, hit it with a rolled up newspaper, go buy a new one at Wallmart and switch it with your. lol.
I just bought the chip maybe one month ago.. does Matrix have a Dead chip warranty?
Did you try any of the stuff I suggested like playing a burnt DVD? Does it have a laser fix since all v12's need a laser fix?
Tried the burned DVD's, no go.. I'll have to install the Subzero fix.
Does the SX point have to be on?
The SX point is for playing PS1 backups.
If you are getting the Logo and V screen, it's safe to assume that the chip is fine..noone wants to hear that their install is off, but it does sound like you ahve a bad connection somewhere.. try reheating the solder on the B-H-G-I-A pads of the chip to insure you don;t have a cold weld. Also, use a multimeter to check for connection issues on the above listed points on the board. Every one of those points has a spot near it that you can check to insure you have good connection. To find these alternate spots, use your multimeter and place one prob on the weld spot on the board, then follow the trace and find a spot along the way that gives continuity. Once you;ve established that, take the prob off the solder point and touch it to the point on the chip, if your solder job is good, you'll get a continuity reading. If you don;t, then you need to resolder till you do.
