    You may want to check if the laser lens is clean or scratched. I have heard stories about bad mod chip instillations forcing the laser into the CD! I would try a CD/DVD laser cleaning CD first. Who knows perhaps the lens got some dirt on it. =/

    a red screen means there is a chip error with magic chips!

    Your chip is most likely fine. When what you described happens, it usuaally means the DVD controller points are mixed up. Those points are, b,c,h,g,i,w,a, and d. Check all those points.
