Default PS2 problem

sponsored links


I have a PS2 version 9.
I installed the Magic 3.2 mod chip on it.
Everything worked fine until recently.

I was playing a game.. and after reseting the PS2 I could not open the cd drive any more. The blue light simply keeps flashing. Nor can I load the game thats in the drive.
The PS2 does boot to the usual blue screen.. but the drive is not working.
I opened the PS2, checked all the drive connections.. its all good.
I took out the cd manually and then tried ejecting the drive.. no luck.
I tried disconnecting the chip my removing the 5V supply to it, hoping it is the chips fault... still no luck

I do hear some buzzy sound when this is happening.. not sure if that sound was there before. It comes from the motherboard I think...

Any ideas what could the problem be?

Check that your LA6508 and coils are OK. I have seen a badly burnt LA6508 once that gave the exact symptoms you describe.
