    Hi,

    I looked through 5 pages of this forum, so i hope I am not posting a tired old noob topic :|

    I have a PS2 with a Messiah 2 chip, and since i got it none of my PS1 games (original or burnt) will work. The PS2 boots, then goes to the browser menu (Mem card / CD). It cant seem to get past that or boot the game.

    I saw some instructions for other chips on how to get around this, usually involving holding the reset button. Does anyone know the Messiah / Messiah 2 specific way to get PS1 backups to run?

    cheers!

    found these instructions for the messiah 2 not sure if its the same version as your or not but might work


    1. Play all kinds of PS2 games ( CD Silver/CD-R/DVD Silver/DVD-R/DVD9 All Region )

    - Switch on the PS2 to Standby ( Red light ) and press Eject to open the disc tray.
    - insert the game into the disc tray and press Eject or Reset to close the tray & boot the game.

    2. Play all kinds of PS1 games ( CD Silver/CD-R All Region ) and DVD Movies.

    - Put the PS2 to Standby mode. ( Red Light )
    - Press and hold Eject for at least 1 second to open the disc tray.
    - Insert the PS1 game or DVD movie into the disc tray and press Eject to close the tray.
    - You can also tap Reset and the PS2 will remain in PS1 mode and boot the game.

    3. Disable mod-chip function. ( Sleep mode )

    - Put the PS2 to Standby mode. ( Red Light )
    - Press and hold Eject for at least 5 second to open the disc tray.
