I recenly purchased a Magic 3.5 MOD. I have soldering experience and the whole installation went fine, however, whenever I attempt to play a backed up game I always get the red screen. I've read various threads with similar problems, I have tried different ways to turn on the console hitting reset in different patterns. I have reviewed my soldering points countless times and I can't find anything out of place. The system plays DVD's and non backed up games fine. Someone mentioned it might be the chip itself. The chip was on a red base while all others advertised are on a blue base. I went ahead and ordered an "official" magic 3 chip with the hopes that it might work that way.
