    What version unit? Is it loading anything? If the chip is a magic 3.6 with the clip, then it is the clip most of the time. I have to clip and re-clip for about 15 - 20mins to get those to work. I prefer soldering to the bios legs. Try loading a ps1 game, if it works, the chip is fine and start looking at the bios points, and the w point.

    I also have magic 3.6 on a ps2 ver7, i had that same problem, its the clip u guys you need to press on it really hard, until it stays where it suppose to, and then test the pin connections. I did and now it works just fine. I can play ps1 back ups- ps2 dvd-r and ps2 cd-r back ups, DVD movie back ups and originals.

    Cheers.
