Hi everyone, I was asked to find a fix for the following problem: A PS2 V10 was modded with a Crystal Chip 1.1 and has alwas worked without any problems. It stopped reading any CDs/DVDs, neither backups nor originals, when the owner tried to install a new firmware (hacked r16). All it does now is fade to the black screen as normal, I can hear the disc spin, then I get presented with the browser which shows the disc as a Playstation 2 - disc. Trying to boot it from the browser gives me the same results... goes back to the browser after a short time. I read on the crystal chip homepage that the firmware could be reset by pressing reset 3 times when the console boots up - this did not change a thing. Disabling the chip by pressing reset 6 times during startup has not changed anything either. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this problem? I'm pretty much at a loss here. Only other thing I can think of is cleaning the laser - however I seriously doubt that this is the problem, the firmware update directly before the console stopped working is far too... coincidental. Thanks for your help.
