    When I hold the eject button pushed, it's supposed to open the tray automatically after a few seconds and then automatically close (used for swap disks). But now it doesn't happen. Pushing on it, for no matter how long, does nothing. But normally the button works fine for normal games.
    What could be wrong?

    I don't think so. That's why I have to use swap disks. It was working fine yesterday.

    the directions using the eject button is for the no-solder modchip. To use swap magic you must have a fliptop, slide card, or no-solder chip.

    Well I still don't know what I have, but it doesn't require swap disks. So how do you think I can fix that eject button problem?

    I can't help you if you don't even know what you have.

    But does it really have anything to do with the mod? I mean doesn't that eject button function also come with a normal PS2?

    No, thats not normal ps2 operation, the no-solder modchip makes it do that.

    Ohhh, I opened it a while ago and didn't see anything special. You think I should post some pics and then someone can help me?

    No, I bought it used. The guy said it can play burned games using swap disks and it did (haven't tried DVDs yet). And since yesterday, it stopped doing it.
    I opened the whole PS2 today but didn't find any "chip". How is the non-solder chip supposed to look like and where is it suppose to be? I have v5 or 6 - not sure.

    Thanks for the link, devilhunt. My chip is almost exactly like the one on the website and it is also connected the way the web site shows. But the eject button still doesn't function like it's supposed to with the chip. You think the chip got screwed up or something? Here's something more:
    First it stopped working so I opened up the DVD-Drive and noticed that when I hold the eject button pushed for a few seconds, the gears try to rotate but they "get stuck" and they stop. It doesn't have anything to do with the mechanics because gears rotate fine when the eject button is pressed normally.

    I also tried to run PS2 with the modchip and now as soon as as the eject button is pushed the tray opens. With the modchip, you have to push and then release for the tray to open.

    I'm so confused...

    Thanks, I just made my own slide card and it works!!! Now all I have to do is test it using the new magics disks I'm receiving soon.


    Thanks again.
