DEAD modded PS2 from jhnbnblzd
I bought a DMS3 2.0 modded PS2 from the user jhnbnblzd for $280.00. There were a few problems with getting it to me, but I won't get into that here. I'm having some problems with it now, and since he takes forever to reply to me, I thought I might post here as well.
I got it just last Saturday I think, and I have backed up four games - XGRA, Zone of the Enders, Clock Tower 3, and Sould Calibur 2. Each time I backed up a title, I tested it and played it just perfectly fine for about 15 minutes. I also tested a few games from my library of backed up PS1 titles, and played some for about 10-15 minutes each.
Last night, I sat and played Soul Calibur for about a half hour. It worked fine. I then popped in Clock Tower 3 and played it for about an hour. I then popped in Zone of the Enders, and it didn't boot - just a black screen! I HELD down power to turn the unit off, and turned it back on. No blue PS2 boot screen, just black. I have tried all four titles, and have tried with absolutely nothing in the system - no game or memory card - every time is just a black screen.
Disabling the chip however works - if the system is off, and I HOLD the eject button (which turns off the mod), the boot screen comes on. I threw in a retail title, and it works.
So what's going on here? Is there any way to troubleshoot this short of sending it back? Has anyone else had these problems?
