    I just got my ps2 modded. It plays pretty much everything: backup dvd-r ps2, ps2 games, dvd movies, backup dvd movies, psx games. The only thing it can't read is backup psx games. I've tried cleaning the laser, readjusting the tray, etc. Should I try readjusting the laser or is the problem with the laser itself?? Thx to anyone that is willing to help.

    I have a friend that's been doing modding back in the psx days. It takes a while to learn but once u get used to it, it can be kinda easy. Anyways, anyone gonna answer my question??

    oh btw, I wouldn't recommend doing the mod yourself if you've never soldered anything in ur life.

    Hey Hitman, may not have an answer but I am able to share my experience. My console is pretty old (v1) and I only had it modded recently, amusingly enough with a Messiah 2.

    The installation ppl told me it my laser was very badly worn and that it would need replacing eventually but that it does work.

    When I got it back it worked with PS2 original/backups but not with DVDs or PS1 original/backups. So i've just sent it in today and will let you know how it turns out with a new laser.

    Have you had your machine long?

    What version messiah do you have?
    When you put in your PS1, what happens?
    When you put your DVDs what happen?
    Try disabling the chip by holding down the reset button for 5 seconds or more from standby and see what happens.

    Do not try to run a copied DVD. Run an original and see what happens.

    I have a v4 ps2, i tried adjusting the laser to help read the backup psx games, no luck. Oh well, I don't really play psx games anymore but I just wanted everything working.

    heres you answer..what alot of people dont know is like most chips the m2 has 3 modes...

    ps2 back-up mode (always on)

    ps1 back-up mode (hold power button until blue eject light comes on...about 1 sec.)

    sleep mode...(hold power botton until sony computer entertainment....comes on the screen)

    yeah, they're good copies, works on my modded psx. I just can't find the perfect setting for the laser and white wheel in the back of the tray. It's so odd because everything else works, so why shouldn't backup psx games work.
