magic 3.? problems –
i went to a video game store in NYC (canal st) and got my V7 ps2 modded there....now i asked the guy what they use...he said magic 3 and 3.1s...so i get it done...and now i look at the receit...it only says magic 3 on it...so i test out all my backups...all boot up just fine...ps2 dvdrs, ps2 cdrs (copys and rips), psx backups....and then i test out the sleep function...which is only in a 3.1 chip right?? cause that worked...got the rosd..then rebooted again and chip was back on and it booted my game....but now im playin Vice city and FFX and the game is randomly freezing....i timed it...its not after X amount of minutes....its not always during loading points (though most of the time it is)....so what the hell?? i thought Magic 3.1 fixed those probs on V7 ps2s?...or do you think i got a 3.0 with a sleep feature added?? thanx
3.0 indeed. You need to put an external switch on your chip. There is stuff here on this board to tell you how to do so.

damnnn......i dunno anything bout soldering...and dont feel like testing my first time on a $300 piece of equpment (200+100 mod installion)....and even if the place does install a switch...or make it a 3.1 chip instead...a trip to the city for me is impossible the next few days
Play other games until you can take it back and complain =) ..
If your soldering is questionable, I wouldn't try putting in a switch yourself. The mclr pin that you have to solder on is very small even under a magnifying glass.
The sleep function is also on the magic 3.0. I think the shop will do the swap. I mean what are we talking about $20 for a magic 3.1.
Just installed the switch this afternoon. I have been playing for 2 hours and no freezing problem any more. It seems really works
