i used some RJ45 wire. i think thats what its called. the wire you run through the walls for networking and connect an ethernet cable to. anyways. i used this for my power and ground. made the wires 3" each. the wire is thick. still didn't do it. i'm leaning towards the idea above that it may be a bad chip. i checked the entire board for solder splashes. i found none. checked everything pin on all the chips even if i didn't solder to it and nothing is bridged. the W, A, and S, wire were the toughest for me, but they all or connected good and not bridged anywhere either. i may just send this thing out and see what a pro says.

thanks for trying to help. it is much appreciated.

i know how you feel.. i have a v7 that doesn't read any dvd media at all, original or backup, so you're better off than i am. I belive i read somewhere that you can dissconnect wire "Z' if you don't want game shark code compatibility, in some cases it has been known to solve problems with the chip. Also, since original dvd media works test your laser with a scope and see if the signal is strong enough for backups. It may just need a simple tweak. Search on yahoo for a laser adjustment tutorial for a print out of the correct laser signal. Be extra careful if you do attempt to adjust the dvd pot

just a thought
have u checked all wires to make sure none are shorting out to other wires
i had a similar problem with a version 7 and everything was connected fine but after having it apart a few times i noticed a couple of wires were stuck together, the insulation on the wires was stuck together and the two wires were shorting on one another i was also using 30 gauge kynar

also make sure no wires are near the small screw holes on top and bottom of the motherboard
its pretty easy to see if there are any flat spots on the wire indicating it has been squeezed when the machine was put back together
