Default NEO4 chipped PS2 doesnt read real games

sponsored links

 
i have a ver.4 PS2 that is chipped with a NEO4. i've been using it for some time now but it doesn't read some of the real real games anymore. the cd based games (the ones with the blue backs) do not load, it says that a PSone game is loaded instead of a PS2 game and when i try to load it as a PSone game, it doesnt load. the screen becomes black and that's it, i dont even hear the PS2 trying to read the disc or anything. the dvd based games work fine as do all my backup games, cdr and dvdr. it's just the cd based real games...can anyone help me out?

It's strange that the copies will play and not originals, but it may just be a dirty laser. I've seen stranger things... just get a DVD brush laser cleaner and see if that helps. Sometimes you have to take them apart and physically clean the laser though. If that doesn't work, there is a pot. to adjust inside the unit, but that's not recommended...

I have the same problem. The sharkport CD I own has is a blue bottom disc and does not load with my PS2/Neo4.

Yes, there is a problem with the NEO4 and being able to read original games and the GameShark, etc. I never heard of it happening after the system has already worked ok though, per the original post. Usually, you'd know immediately after chip install. I've never heard of a fix, just burn your CD games to CDR and play them that way...
