    I got a magic 3.1 i think, and the ps2 is a v4. but when i put in a disk it would play but when i wanna eject it wont! the blue light flashes and then the drive doesnt open, but it does make a little sound like it was gonna open, but it doesnt! also the drive opens if i power down and come back to it later like a few hours i guess. so after i got the import disk out i put in a US disk and then it runs but also wont eject. also when it doesnt let me eject i am not able to boot the game
    what can i do to fix this? what could be the problem, i tried everything but open up the ps2

    Bios may be shorted or damaged.
    Check for solder bridge on bios or solder ball underneath.

    No probably not permanent if that is what the problem is.
    Have the person who did the mod fix it.

    when the blue flashes, your PS2 is overheatet!
    does your cooling-fan work?

    I'm not sure on a version 4 but on a 5-6-7 There are 4 ribbon cables that must be connected to the drive.
    Just take your time and you can probably figure it out. make sure to not have any static build up on your person when messing around on the inside.

    Also, Why not take it back to the moder who did it? My guys fix everything for free once they mod it, even if it's months later. I guess I should feel luck I use them.

    good luck

    There are 4 wires connecting the drive to the board and my version, I'm not sure which one it was cause after I found that one was disconnected I just removed and reconnected the rest to make sure there wasn't any problem with them.
    It won't be the brown colored one cause the drive wouldn't open at all then.......duuhhhhh.
    Sorry couldn't be anymore help bro.

    thanx guys, i figured it out i think...it was so stupid..i moved the ps2 to another outlet..the one it was in was connected to a lot of stuff liek tv vcd dvd cable box etc so i guess it wasnt getting the power it desired. i guess it wants a lot more power when its modded. oh well ;] i appreciate all the responses. but the reset and eject button lights dont come on still. is there a way to get a replacement? maybe that fragile wire it is connected to got messed up when the case was being put back on.

    The wall outlet change does not make any sense. May have started working because you moved it.

    Sounds to me that the wires aren't properly connected/inserted, check to make sure that they are fully inserted, even, and aren't loose on the system board as well as on the drive itself.
    The eject/reset wire isn't connected directly to the drive it is connected to the system board, make sure it is connected on the board and the button too. Other than that I could only suggest checking your solder points.
