    The two big wires you are referencing are most likely the 3V3 and GND points. Removing them will not let power get to the modchip. If your laser is not working upgrading the flash from a download from sksapps isnt going to do a damn thing for you. It sounds like your issues are unrelated to the chip. Yes you can install HDL to your MC and have the DMS3 V9 boot the elf from the MC in dev1 mode which will allow you to play back-ups you have installed to a HDD. However you will need some way of getting HDl on the MC. If you have another working modded PS2 you can looking booting ULE which will aid you in installing HDL to the MC you plan on using on the DMS3 unit. You would need to install HDL to the MC like this

    mc0:/BOOT/BOOT.ELF

    Holding triangle from standby and tapping reset enables dev1 mode on the DMS3. If you have done everything right HDL will boot up and allow you to access your HDD. You can then use winhiip to install your back-ups to your PS2's HDD right on your PC also avoiding the use of a laser issue with the console.

    I know this is a lot of info to digest for a first timer but if you look around and do a little research you will find it very easy to do.

    You might consider sending it to a pro to have it repaired.

    Have fun!

    No that is what is referred to as the "exploit", with the exploit you need a PS1 original to trigger the exploit. Since your laser isnt working you wont be able to use the exploit either. The exploit is kind of the same idea as what I had mentioned though. But since you have a modchip with dev1 mod you don't need to use the exploit even if you have a working laser.

    With the working modded console you can boot ULE from a CD-R, have a look here for the official ULE forum

    http://www.ps2-scene.org/forums/showthread.php/unofficial-launchelf-37242.html

    Once you have ULE running on the working console you can install HDL to mc0:/BOOT/BOOT.ELF and proceed as I had previously stated.

    You might be best off at just having it repaired though
