Strange DVD reading problem
Strange DVD reading problem –
I just put a Messiah 2 into my v4 ps2 and it wont read any dvds. It tries to load and then goes to the browser and says "No Data". Then it goes to the red "insert Playstaion or Playstation 2 disc" screen. Cds & Cdrs work. However if i turn off the Messiah, it will load dvds so I dont think it is a laser problem. I checked all the wiring and I didnt see any problems. Any ideas?
Please may I refer you to the Troubleshooting section of the Install Guide also placed in the FAQ section here on the forum? This topic is covered.
I went over it and checked W and R. They are both ok. Could it still be the laser if dvds work with the Messiah off?
When things like that happen..it is usually a problem with the install
I had the same problem once..then I checked all my wires and noticed that one wire had a short against another component..
So toy must check every wire and every soldr point..
When Messiah's are installed right..they work perfectly.
do you remember which wire it was? I checked them all with a multimeter and none are bridged and they all go were they are supposed to. How likely is it to be the chip?
I too, have the same problem with a V7 and a 1.22a Messiah2. I've checked, rechecked, and triple checked all the wires for bridges, splatters, wrong connections and it will not boot any DVD's (original or DVD-R's) only when I turn the chip off will it read DVD originals. CD and CD-R's are fine. Anyone have any ideas what's wrong yet?
