My New Ps2 won't read CD media after magic 2 install... HELP!
Hey guys, just wanted you to know before I start my pleading and begging on my knees for someone to help me what an efficient and helpful place this is. :) Now, onto my problem:
I JUST installed a magic 2 clone onto my brand new v7 ps2. Before I installed it, I tested an original CD ps2 game, and it worked fine. Now , after install, absolutely NO CD based media works. I tried the same original ps2 CD game, and a couple ps2 backups, then an original ps1 game, then a ps1 backup. Nothing. It either gives a "disc read error" after trying to read it for a little while, or it makes it just past the whirling electrons and gets stuck in a black screen. It doesn't ever make it to either the "playstation 2" or "playstation 1 " logos.
However, I do have a DVD movie that plays perfectly everytime. I do not have any dvd original games , or dvd-r's to test out, but I did try a movie on DVD-rw and that played somewhat ok. (Don't know if that information somewhat helps out, but I thought I'd add it just in case).
Even though I'm almost positive this is NOT a laser issue, I cleaned the laser , and made sure the pots were set to 1.1 or so. That didn't affect anything.
What do you guys suspect my problem is? Can someone please help me out, I'm absolutely dying to get my ps2 modded !
Thanks , and please give some insight if you think you might know the problem!
