PS2 cannot play DVD video discs
Yeah, this is happening. Got 100+ hits on the same topic from google. Unfortunately, I've a different problem.
This is PS2-slim scph-9001 NTSC, modded. My retailer tells me that it is modded with a Matrix v3.0 mod chip, but I've a serious doubt. Holding triangle+circle during boot-up doesn't bring up configuration menu, holding start during boot-up does not turn off the mod chip and so on. None of the key combination complying a matrix mod-chip works for me. So the only conclusion I can draw from it is that, it is not a Matrix(infinity?) mod chip. But this is just the beginning of the problem.
Recently, I tried to play DVD movies on the PS2. Since I've no idea what mod chip is hiding out there, I tried all possible approaches(for all possible mod-chips) to play DVD movies. The only approach through which I managed to get anywhere near is putting PS2 to standby and then holding up reset button for a few seconds to boot. Alright, now it recognizes my DVD movies as a PS2 disc but if I press X, it returns to the same screen over and over again. At the very least, I've a feeling that I'm following up the correct DVD-boot procedure for whatever mod chip is in there, since every other methods results in *No data*. So a little bit of insight here would be great. At least, a push in the right direction would be heavily appreciated!
And of course, I can play backup game discs but not DVD video discs(backup or original). I'd open up the casing and look up the mod-chip if that is what it takes to get any help on this problem. But I've a feeling that mod-chips aren't labelled with their type so that would hardly turn out to be any good. Just let me know.
