Messiah 2 CDR Install Problem –
Installed a Messiah 2 (v1.30) into a v4 (nogap) PS2.
After the install, it plays the following:
PS2 DVD Original : Boot OK
PS2 DVDR : Boot Ok
PS2 CDR: Hangs after "Playstation 2" Logo
PS1 CD: Boot Ok
PS1 CDR: Boot Ok
Also, when booting up, the PS2 & PS1 Logos looked messed up. Can this happen from wiring problem, or should I suspect the chip to be faulty?
I've tried resoldering wires to include B, C, A, W (tried W1 as well), Scex, MNOPQTUVR.
I've adjusted the azimuth - No joy.
I've recalibrated the laser - No joy.
I've reburned the CDR - No joy. (it works in my v7, but not v4).
Before I rip this mod out and start over from scratch, can anyone offer any suggestions?
** Update **
Uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Same problem. I'm starting to think this M2 is a POS.
