is it showing the "playstation 2" screen.. if it is then its recognising the disc, and the chip is good, your media is just wank..

if not then redo it!! - if youve removed it get some desolder braid.. dip it in flux.. and stroke upwards over bios points untill they look clear..

then test - if good reinstall and hope

v3 is old so its possible that your laser is shot..

a friend of mine with the famous v3 that i always go on about had that problem.. it swooshed off the electron screen and just span fast but did nothing.. after maybe 10 minutes it would say it had a disc in, or just nothing..

a new laser fixed that problem though

if people are getting the playstation 2 screen soon enough then nothing afterwards try to burn @ lower speeds, use good media or just get a different copy..
