[PS2 SCPH-70011] Bogus modchip, where should I go from here? *newbie*
I'm a big newbie when it comes to anything else but playing videogames, and I've recently acquired a PSTWO SCPH-70011, supposedly modded with a Matrix Infinity chip. I didn't know PSTWO was having so many problems, specially because Sony doesn't even sell PSTWOs in my country, so you have to get an import, thus even if Playstation 2 is very popular here, it's technical issues are not.
I have tried to change one setting on my Matrix Infinity, and for my dispair, it stopped working. After a quick google on the matter, I found out it was a fake Infinity, a cheap modchip called ModBo or something like that, and it dies when one tries to alter "Infinity"'s configs. No harm to the console is done, so right now I own a unmodded PSTWO. I've been reading the forums for some time, but most threads got me lost, so I decided to start my own.
My question is: Where to go from here? Which modchip should I get, which fix should I get, and where would I get such fix, and how would I install it? (I guess it was more then one question...-_-). Also, will purple backups still harm the laser after I re-mod it and get proper fixes?
Returning the videogame for the guy who sold me can't be done because I moved to another state... it would be cheaper to try and fix the problem. ^^
My thanks to whoever reads this. ^_^'
