help on a solution
hey all i have modded many ps2s but i am having a problem with this one it is a magic 3.1(what i always use) and a version 7 ps2... with the mod chip installed and active it will not boot anything just goes to insert formatted ps1 or ps2 disk with the mod chip deactivated (by holding down the reset button till it comes on) boots originals perfect so the chip is doing its thing but somthing isnt right. i have triple checked all connections with ohm meter and made sure of no bridges any help would be great.. one more thing i did get it to boot a copy one time and it was wierd the playtion 2 welcome screen was backwards like the "playstion 2 was black and the screen was white" wierd huh
any help would be great
Maybe the Chip is damaged get another chip like DMS, Apple, Messiah2.
If you say that there are no bridges check the DVD/CD controller points and the bios!!
resolder the resonator
thanks got it it was a bad chip took one out of old ps2 and works perfect
one more thing will a magic 5 work in a 50001 ps2
thanks for all the help
