    I have a v10 ps2 with an unknown modchip which used to play all my ps2 backups from cdr- and dvdr- automatically with no problems.
    It then suddenly refused to play any kind of disc at all, which led me to believe it was a problem with the laser. So i first tried cleaning the lens with rubbing alcohol which didn't solve the problem, so then decided i to have the laser replaced.

    Now i have a brand new laser but it still will not load up any of my backups from cdr- or dvdr-, however it will load both my original ps1 and ps2 games.

    Could fitting a new laser have somehow disabled/broken my modchip, or is there maybe something wrong with my board?

    Any thoughts, suggestions or help with this would be greatly appreciated as it has me baffled and i have no idea what to do next to correct it.

    Thanks.

    it sounds like your ps2 is booting up the normal way and not through the modchip.there may be a simple solution not 100% sure as im not an expert on playstations.try a few google/afterdawn searches you are probably not the first one to have this problem.there are people on this forum that might have answers.

    I have searched but can't seem to find an answer, all similar topics i find always blame the laser, but i can rule that out after fitting a new one in my ps2.

    Maybe i can remove the old chip and install a new one to fix it.
