Default Problem with my Messiah installed PS2 and DVD's

sponsored links

I have Messiah installed on my PS2. In order for me to get my games working I have to tap the reset button about 5 times. This seems to make the PS2 assume any disc inserted is a valid PS2 disc. Anyway the problem with this is that any DVDR backup I make doesn't work. If I don't use the 5 tap thing any backup disc I use, PS1, PS2 or DVD gives the redish "Please Insert a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc" screen. But if I do the 5 tap thing it treats the disc like a PS2 disc and that resets the system to the FIle Browser Menu every time. What can I do?

Maybe you should give the disk a wipe and clean the lazer lens of the ps2.

I purchased a pre modded PS2. My installer (madkao) said I should try cleaning the Laser Lens, so I am going to try that. Anyone know the best laser lens cleaner for PS2?

Well I used a brand new laser lens cleaner (one with a brush) and I get the same result. I really think it has to do with messiah. Using the reset thing seems to get the PS2 into thinking every disc is a PS2 disc with Messiah getting all backups to work. If I do not do this trick my system acts as if there is no modchip installed at all.

you only have to press the reset button once to get the games to work with the messiah

and the redish screen is that the leads are not pluged in fully
