    I have a slim ps2, the newer model, with modchip. I was trying to playing some ps1 games that i backed up and when I tried to play it went to fast boot, i didn't know what fast boot was at the time, and I saw that it said PAL, but I just reset it beacuse i didn't know what it was at the time. When i restarted my ps2 it started up in black and white and the screen moving up and down... now i can't read anything, runs the ps1 game fine though. I found out that I accidentaly went to fast boot and when I return to the same menu to try to change PAL back to NTSC or Normal or something.... I can't really read it from the screen. Can anyone provide me a screenshot of fastboot or tell me how to reset ps2 settings please... thanks a lot. Now i have 1 game working... 40 others not lol

    well the thign is i really don't know... I only know that one game that is PAL works, i'm pretty sure the others are "normal" if that's ntsc... because i never really switch the screen mode around at all for any games...

    sorry about the double post... i'm not sure if you guys are hearing me too clear... when I turn on my PS2... on my tv screen.. I see all the rgular ps2 startu and such but in black and white and the screen moving down/up raelly fast.. so i can't really make out where anything is. When I go into fast boot.. i see that it's set to PAL, since the screen is realy distorted, I can't select where it sais screen mode to change PAL or what not... if that's the prob. so.. thats the prob, I can't change it in fastboot because the pictures i get are distorted. This only started happening when for some reason my ps2 started up in fastboot mode, and then after that everythign was f'ed up,e xcept one game that i think is a PAL game

    Okay I have an update... I haven't figured out which modchip I have but maybe you guys can narrow it down. When I hold select i go to that menu where i see pal and other scscreen adjustment options. But like i said the screen mode is wrong for the tv so the screen just moves.. now I held down START and it disabled the modchip. When the modchip is disabled I get my ps2 goes back to normal.. but obviously i cant my backed up games.

    I read the dsm4 chip faq about how to force boot it into other modes... but it didn't work.. and i also noticed the disable for dsm4 is L1... i disabled it with start

    yea if you re-flash the firmware it will put everything back to the default setting.just make sure you have an original matrix infinity chip before you try to flash it.
