Magic 3.1 v4 Odd Problem
I had a PS2 v4 gap modded with Magic 3.1, first it play PS2 back up dvd-r games then I shut it down for about an hour and turn it back on, it won't play PS2 back up dvd-r games anymore, (PS2 back up cd-r, original dvd and cd-r play fines). My back up games had been tested with other Magic 3.1 on version 5 console and DMS3 on version 7.
I open it back up and double check to make sure none of the wire are comming loose, check for bridges and also check with a meter for continuity. I clean out the laser lense and adjust the dvd laser from 850 ohms to 1250 ohms. And guess what, this time it does load and play one of mine back up dvd-r game but the rest of my dvd-r games, you can hear it read the disc but it me the black screen. Only one load out of 70 back up dvd-r games that has been tested with other Magic 3.1 and DMS3 chips, this is odd. Could anyone tell me what wrong with my console?
I did press the reject button continuously hoping to get it load some of my dvd-r games, could this cause the problem?
I hope you mean reset button not eject button.
With the disk assumed in the tray and the tray closed:
For PS2 games, power up normally from STANDBY with RESET button.
A single tap is required.
For PS1 games & DVD Movies, power up from STANDBY with RESET button held until the blue EJECT light comes on; then release RESET and the disk will boot.
Please turn off the PS2 (to standby) before changing Mode (PS1/PS2/DVD)
Try to put the chip into sleep mode and see if PS2 works ok with ariginal games. Hold reset button in untill the Playstation logo apears. Just to trouble shoot.
