Matrix Infinity SE - Recovery Possible ???
Matrix Infinity SE - Recovery Possible ??? –
This is my first post to the forum and was wondering whether anyone could shed some light on my current situation. Heres the history...
Bought a Slim PS2 with what I believed to be a 'pure' Matrix Infinity chip installed. Everything worked fine for a few months, until I wanted to play a backup version of Sega Rally 2006. When I booted up, the game was displayed in black & white. Now I remembered reading in some forum that the Matrix chip had a config screen which allowed you to change B/W games into colour. After a few more searches on google - stumbled on press TRIANGLE + CIRCLE during PS2 Boot Up to access the config screen.
Got access to the config screen and made the change and saved. It was from this point onwards that the PS2 ****s up. It no longer plays any of my backups however it can play DVD's. Also when I start the PS2 from standby it just sits there with a 'black' screen and it only when I hit the reset that it start the PS2 logo. boot up etc. (Same situations as described in many of the posts in this forum... )
In desperation, found this forum site in search of asolution and read about 'fake' matrix infinity mod chips...so decided to open up my PS2, this afternoon to see what was inside and guess what ? Looks like I have the Matrix Infinity SE Chip !
(1) Given that its a Matrix Infinity SE, is there ANY way, this chip can be recovered to a working state, either by reflashing it via CD or 'resetting' the bios or other ?
(2) If I can't reflash it, and its truly a 'dead' chip - how easy is it to swap (solder) it out with a 'real' Matrix Infinity SE chip - same solder points ?
Hope someone can provide some help...
p.s. Sega Rally 2006 was shite and I've now got a **** PS2 !
your chip is dead and finished get a real matrix infinity, the points are the same i believe just look at the install diagrams
or complain to the modder
there is a way to reflash the chip - check out the forums here. you need another working chip though and it requires a fair amount fo soldering/desoldering. I've done it successfully before because I was bored one day. but at the end of the day if your into clones its just cheaper to buy another one that go through the hassle or reflashing.
to fit the real chip should be easy enough - should be the same points.
