    I have a v7 PS2 modded with a Magic V chip for about a month now and everything was working fine until today. Whenever I pop in a backed-up DVD movie or PS2 game, it loads fine and everything but then it freezes randomly during the playback or loading of the game/movie.

    I don't think it's my system or the type of media I use because it boots up fine and it loads everything past the PlayStation logo screen. Just when the the game/movie is actually playing or loading it freezes. I'm thinking it's either my laser/lens or the mod chip.

    I'm totally clueless as to what to do. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    This started happening to me then it got more regular and eventually the games didnt boot up at all. I needed a new lens/laser.

    Thx for ur reply.

    I have no idea if it's actually my laser lens or the mod chip cuz some backed-up games worked fine while others kept freezing. And those games that kept freezing were working fine for a month or so till today. :S

    Try cleaning your laser.

    Ok I opened my PS2 and cleaned the laser lens and I also tried rotating the white thing to different positions, but to no avail.

    I'm beginning to think it might be the media I'm using cuz my original games work fine and some back-ups don't while others do.

    Any other suggestions?
