PS-2 Model 39004 & Mars III MA-502 Reset Button Modes...
PS-2 Model 39004 & Mars III MA-502 Reset Button Modes... –
I have a SONY PS-2 Model 39004 and recently I got a mod chip Mars III MA-502 for it.
Before I install the chip, I noticed that it?s not mentioned in the diagrams how many times I have to press the reset button in order to change between the PS-1, PS-2, DVD Movie & Original game modes.
The guy at the shop told me that once I successfully install the chip, I turn on the console, insert a disc and do the follow Reset procedures for the different modes:
2 x Reset for:
1 x Reset for:
Are the above reset sequences right, so I can do some proper testing once I install it?
It?s been two years since I installed a mod chip and never this specific one, so if anybody could tell me how it works exactly before I install the chip I would highly appreciate it! (It would be very frustrating to re-solder everything, only to find that I?m not pressing the reset button the right amount of times)
Thanks in advance.

This might not be helpful to you but in my opinion, I think you should go and buy a Duo 2 GT or something. It would eliminate so many wires you have to solder. Only $15 + shipping and you can save yourself a lot of time. I think that chip is outdated and it requires a lot of unnecessary wires.
Do not get the Matrix infinity SE. That is a clone chip that cannot be updated. Get the Actel based IC.
Thanks for noting that as I would have probably fallen for that as it does not look like a clone at all.
I noticed in the Matrix Infinity home site that the MATRIX INFINITY ACTEL based
IC is a universal chip and it's supposed to be compatible with all PS-2 Models from V1 - V14!
That looks very interesting indeed, but is it so?
Would it work perfectly on a V7-V8 39004, on a V9 GH23 5004 and on a Slim PStwo model and would I have to re-adjust the CD/DVD Lens resistance for the V7-8, V9 & Slim PStwo if I install the Matrix Actel Based IC?
I wouldn't want the laser lens to die out after a month. Or has this issue been resolved with the Matrix Infinity chip?
I also found the following chip at a shop:
Is this an older version of the Matrix Actel based IC chip and can it be updated or is it another clone of the Infinity?
It costs 10Euros
Thanks in advance.
