    Hello, Im new to this form and i hope somone here can help me out...
    I got a matrix infinty (1.38v) installed in my brand
    new pstwo(slim) last week, it was done by a technician
    in a store - so i almost certine he did a god job with
    the soldering, I also believe the chip is original, he
    also installed a laser protection chip - but i dont
    know any details about it. We checked the machine in
    the store and it looked fine.
    Few days later, when i had the chance to test it at
    home i found out that i cant turn the PStwo on, When i
    pressed the power button nothing happend (the red
    light flashes on and of randomly), Some times
    the PStwo will start for a few seconds and then shut down
    again (most of the time it wont even start).
    This happens regardles of the disk i put inside(it
    also happends when i try to turn it on with no disk,
    or with the tray open).
    I first thought the problem lies in the power cable
    (coz of the red light turning on and off randomly) but
    when I replaced the cable nothing have changed.
    I hope you can help me with my problem befor i have to
    go to the place were i had the chip installed (its far
    away from where i live). I should mention that the ps
    was bought in US and i live in israel, this is why i
    use an adaptor on the power cord, altough im sure this
    is not the cause of my problem.

    oh and, Sorry for the shitty english.
    fusk it. im not sorry.

    the problem lies with your wiring of your modchip
    i had that problem too, i re-soldered some of the wires and made sure none of them were crossed
    check the wires again on the board and chip, make sure you clean up any access solder
