v5 ps2 won't detect media (memory card, cd's, games, matrix firmware upgrade cd)
hello all. i'm new to this board. altho i've been xbox-scene for quite some time. i've recently modded my version5 ( v5 ) ps2 with the matrix infinity. all soldering was done by myself. and i'm not too shabby with it either. (i did a solder job on my xbox and modded it with xecuter3). here's the problem(s) i'm facing.
when i turn the ps2 on.. it alwsays displays sony entertainment corp and asks me to input my language, area, and time.. etc etc. then it brings me to the main menu. from there whenever i select browser, it takes me to the browser screen.. but when i put a game in or a music cd. NOTHING shows up. it says trying to read media
i don't have any idea on how to go about fixing this. currently i'm taking my ps2 BACK APART and i'm gonna go over each wire on the chip, and on the mobo. i believe it might be a wire problem. but i'm trying to find out if this has happened to anyone else. maybe i burned a chip in the process of me soldering, or maybe i ****ed up on a certain wire.
it almost looks as if.. the laser isn't the problem because not only will it not read my cd's it wont read my MEMORY CARD EITHER!!
i'm confused. any help would be appreciated. thanks again.
