No games are working, just the originals. Now my gameshark freezes up when it says Loading codes please wait. The scrolling stops in the middle.
I had this no solder mod chip in my old PS2 and it worked fine. I just bought a brand new PS2 and I use the method that I listed above.
When the backup DVD goes back in the screen goes blank just like before but nothing loads. I don't know why it wont load my gameshark anymore.

I thought I had a version 7 since I just got it but it has the screw in the expansion bay. Do any version 7's have the screw in the expansion bay?

Sounds like a version 5 or 6 they are the only ones with a screw in the expasion bay and they are the 3000X-R X=1,2,3,4
Ok if none of them work then try playing your gameshark by itself and your GTA by itself if both work then its probablyy a problem with

A. Your laser is dying and needs to be adjusted or its dirty
B. You games are badly scratched

If your games are not badly scratched then it is A

If it were me the first thing I would try is use a cd lens cleaner
If that didnt work I wo uld take the lid off and use alcohol on a cotton swab
If that didnt work I would try to adjust the cog
If that didnt work then I would try adjusting the laser
If that didnt work then I would sell it on ebay and then buy a new ps2 a new laser costs between $60-80 + shipiing (and its hard to find dealers with new lasers instead of refurbs)
You can get about $30-60 bucks for a broken ps2 and even more if you part it out

My PS2 is 3 days old, brand new out of the box.
All of my originals work fine.
I can't really test the Gameshark by itself because it freezes up as it starts up when it says it is loading codes... please wait
I only had the PS2 open for a minute when I put in the no solder mod.
Not sure what else to try

I tried my gameshark 2 other disk for PSone and I can load any psone backups. Could it be my Gameshark 2 disk going bad. Has anyone had this problem?
