Magic 3.1 Install issue
Magic 3.1 Install issue –
I installed a Magic 3.1 in a US 30001R V5 and it worked for about 5 mins. I was able to boot a dvd-r and the game loaded and I was able to play it for 5 mins before the machine locked up. When I restarted it, it did nothing but give me a blank screen. I took it apart to check my connections again and they were all fine. After I put it back together it would start up with the PS logo and then the PS2 logo, then ask me to chose a language. Also when I try to eject the tray the eject light would just blink for about 10 seconds then the tray would come out. Its acting like there was a disk in the drive. When there was a disk in the drive it would attempt to spin it 3 or 4 times then stop. Also every time I restart it, it wants me to chose a language. Its keeping time so the battery is working. I dont get it. I've done several Messiah2 installs and the all went perfect, this is my first install of a Magic3.1. I have not had time to uninstall it to make sure the ps2 is fine yet, I'll get to that tonight. Any ideas?
I found the problem, I installed W to the wrong point. I fixed it and well still no good. I removed the chip completely and the ps2 works normally again. I guess I fried the magic3.1. Good thing I have a spare.
