After Magic2 install on V7 - Black screen
After Magic2 install on V7 - Black screen –
I installed a magic2 chip on v7 ps2 and it worked fine. after a week of playing with the ps2 (loaded everything - backups cds and dvd), the game stopped loading everything (including originals) and I get the following:
Black screen for 15 secs, then "no data" message appears for 1-2 secs and then nothing (yellow disc appears inthe middle of the screen).
I dismantled the chip and still get the same result with original games.
I checked all fuses and they all fine - Does anyone know the root cause for that?
Sounds like a laser problem. What brand of DVD-R are you using? Did you burn these games at slow speed?
I'm trying to load original DVD
Yeah ok, that sounds like the laser is going to hell soon.

Hi again !
I took the chip out, and the problem stll exists. I also replaced the CD drive (installed the bord on a different PS2) and got the same problem -> black screen and then NO DATA.
Please help me !!!
Ooo that's a pain in the ass. Hate taking out those things. Wanna share some methods netmech?
Sure.. when i remove the BA58FM i heat each leg and pop off... i use a needle and pry each pin.. But heating the pin with my soldering iron, because if you do not heat the solder the pin will pull off the pad as well. for the big fat pins i heat the hell out of it.. then pry it off. If i damage the pad underneath i just connect the pin to any ground point.
How can I be sure that BA58FM should be replaced? is there a way to check it before remove it?
and where is it located?
Good stuff, thanks.

If you feel you can do it try what netmech does to remove those things. Good luck man.
It is located near the laser's ribbon cable.
