After playing for a few minutes, video stopped working (fixed)
I was playing a backup of Soul Calibur 2 on a magic V modded v7 system, when the game just froze on the character select screen. I did a hard reset (power off/on, since the reset button wouldn't work) and the disk whirred up like normal, but no sound or video was noticed. I desoldered the modchip and wires, checked all of the contacts carefully for bridges under magnification, popped out and reinserted the bios battery, and still no sound or video occur during startup. Also measured the fuses and they are all still fine apparently.. I'll measure them again just to be sure, but aside from that, what could the problem be? I don't think it's a static death, since the console was together when "it" occured.
