Black Screen –
My brother bought a slim ps2 from hk early last year. I am not sure what modchip it has installed. But today when I turn it on while trying to play Kaye, it comes out something with Matrix screen menu, which i didn't think about it at all and click start and it advice to press on the reset button, which i did. When it resetted, it comes up to the browser page with "Please Insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format cd". I thought it must not be reading the dvd at all since it's the first time i tried playing it. So i press the off button and later turn it back on. This time the screen just goes black and flickers at the beginning.
The power led goes green, but there is no sound at all. Just simply a black screen.
I tried turning it off again and on, same thing happens. Can anyone help me here? Can someone tell me what modchip i got? or is there a way i can tell what i got? Is there a modchip dealer in Brisbane that can help me fix this problem?
your Ps2 must have a clone matrix infinity installed. after you saved the configure manual then chip is dead. although there are a few ways to recover the firmware but it's not possibe when the PS2 is not booting at all, which seems the PS2 might have something else wrong. solution: remove the chip to see if the PS2 stll boots original game, if everything good then install a better chip.
thanks wmb88. Erm, i don't know much about removing the chip, but it's easy right? why did that happen to me =( does australia sell a chip that allows me to play copied oversea ps2 games from hk/malaysia?
i got the normal screen that comes up now after pressing the reset button twice. when i put in the game, it requires me to "insert playstation or playstation 2 format disc" which i did, and the screen went black. Can you tell me what firmware i need to use in order to get the chip working? thanks.

i got into infinity config menu... click start.... and then it request me to reset... but i am not able to run any copied ps2. it just ask "insert playstation or playstation 2 format disc...
anyone can help me......plz....
well sum one did help you but did u try what wmb88 said? remove the chip or get it removed from any installers in ur area.. ask your friends who have a ps2 as to where can u find an installer... but actually removing is a lot easier than installing( for me atleast)... but if you are ot confident then get it removed... ost probably your chip is dead... try playing any original games and see what happens...
