PS2 won't play PS2 games
It's time for a new laser. Which PS2 version do you have and how old is it? Did you play it often?
BUt then "DVD movies (copies and originals) play OK........." did the DVD backup took some time to pick up .... ??
a laser that picks up DVD movies backups should be ok ... test the system with a retail Janpese ps2 game to see if the mod chip is still working..
I hope he is using the same type of dvd for his dvd backups and dvd games. If it's the same type and the laser picks up the dvd movie backup every time then it could be the modchip.
You don't have to buy a whole new system. Just get a new modchip and try that. Modchip could crap out on you. 30004 R isn't SUPER old. If it doesn't even play original but it plays dvd backup movie then something is wrong with the chip probably. Buy a new chip like Duo 2 SE and put it in and give that a try. Good luck.
boot the ps2 original in ps1 mode .. if it boots .. badchip or install "gone" bad.
Yeah didn't think of that, will try...
