OK, I've taken apart and reassambled the PS2 several times now, checking all the points and touching up the solder connections, and the damn thing still isn't working. Originals work fine, but I'm getting the red screen on any backup I try to boot. Anyone have any more suggestions? Could the modchip be faulty? If I'm going to have to desolder all the points, I think I'll just get the no-solder mod+magic swap disc.

I hope you made your leads as short as possible (if not then I'm positive it is a combination of this a crappy media). By running leads over the PCB you are adding quite a bit of noise to your signals, especially since that heat plate would amplify that noise.

Use 22-24 gauge wire for power (+3.3V, 5V, and Ground) and 30 gauge for everything else..... And make sure you locate the chip somewhere on the board that minimizes the length of the leads!
