heres my problem hopefully someone can help –
ok when i first installed a modchip on my v5 ps2 it was back in the day with a neo 2.2 backups booted fine with the old swap method (gameshark2) then i got a magic 3.1 and installed that and it would direct boot psx originals and backups and ps2 originals. wouldnt direct boot any ps2 backups. i took that out and installed my messiah 2 now with my m2 installed my reset button fails to work, the way i load games is by opening and closing the tray and it wont boot any ps2 backups or psx (mainly because i need the reset button) so what should i do here to fix this crap? im thinking about droppin 150 on a used ps2 at EB and starting from scratch again cuz i dont think my ps2 now can be saved lol i cant get that thing to direct boot ps2 backups for the life of me. any help would be appreciated
Have a look at the RESET wire between Magic and PS2 and ensure it is on the right point.
Double check your ribbon cable connexion- in fact that's the most likely problem - the cable might be nicked.
i will take your broke v5 and maybe make a deal on a premoded v? i have a few different versions....maybe we can work something out on a trade or something.... PM me if you want to try to work something out.....
hey charlie do you think i might need to check the soldering of the reset wire, cuz when i was first playing it,after i first installed it, i was playing a game for like a minute then it made a noise and went straight into standby mode, then it couldnt reset anymore and i just have been booting games by opening and closing the disc tray
Then it won't be the chip's RESET wire.
It could be anything but it might well be that the Reset/Eject cable has been damaged or caught in a screw. It is also possible that under compression, BIOS wires are touching at the bare end. Something like that.
Pro attention would be best.
