REMOVE the chip is the best thing you could do right now. See if the PS2 is still in working condition. Do it.

you can tape them. just make sure you dont tape them together. tape each end with a piece of tape.
Ok i removed the Chip and started the Test with the Demo DVD and Tekken4! I can fight but after the fight the PS2 freezes! Loading GTA Vice City the Game freezes but everytime on another part of the game! Sometimes dont start to load and directly load to the Browser/setup screen! The same Problem like befor but without the chip
The Chip wasnt the problem?..
Hope you can help me!
Nope, now we know the problem is the PS2. I assume it's your laser. Either that or you're using some major scratched up discs. What are the resistance on the dvd/cd pots?
DVD: 1370Ohm / CD: 1575Ohm
I think the 1575 Ohm for the CD Laser could be the reason why the PS2 wont play backuped PS1 Games! But that doesnt matter i want a working PS2
The discs are all new and have no scratches! I just use Verbatim DVD's in Jewel Case and these are very good medias!
Some days ago I got a PS2 that had been freezing every 10 seconds, sometimes at powering on, sometimes during boot, and so on. It took 2 days for me to repair that baby, solder splashes, damaged via, controller, and an overheated bios... Now it works perfectly, too bad I removed the mod, now it's time to solder the mod back... I just write this, as there might be several reasons why it does not work, it's hard to advice something when such an unstable console is the target that you have. I suggest you to check the board carefully for solder balls, clean all soldering points. I am almost sure that it's not the laser.
Have i to check just my solder points or all solder points incl. the solder point by sony?
Could the Via destroyed because of my dad removed the varnish/lacquer from the VIA Points with a drill!? My boss solder the via point again and he said that some copper alreade removed from the VIA Point?
Now i will check the board again and wait for answers
Those VIA's are a very painful area of the PS2, as the layers can be easily damaged and so there won't be a real contact between the two layers. As those VIA's are under the controller itself the chance to repair them properly is quite questionable especially without some expensive tools. I have repaired several boards that had the no sound/video syndrome, and most had solder balls/shorts or VIA problems. Not to mention the messed up bios points (to be honest this is quite an easy task to repair). As said freezes can be caused by several things. The first thing I suggest is to remove the whole mod, and checking ALL solder points and the PS2 board near the soldering points. The flux around the soldering points can cause troubles aswell, so clean the points very well and carefully.
How can flux cause trouble?
