PS2 freezing ingame-videos PS2 SCPH 39004 about 10 years old modchip, freemcboot, hdloader 8.0c and openps2 loader. the problem came sneaking, early my ps2 only crashes at a few points of my games, but the older it gets the more freezes i get. the freezes are always at the same spots ingame. the failure actually appears in: final fanatasy 10, final fantasy 12, galaxy rogue, valkyrie profile sylmeria 2 according to that these games except valkyrie profile run perfect on other machines i thinkt the discs are okay. for the failures it doesnt make any difference if i boot with or withoud modchip, disc or hdd. laserlens is clear, no slipping of the discs, laserlayer is calibrated and my discs are in a good condition. actually i found alot of ppl with the same problem, but in all threads ppl are saying "clean your laser" and stuff...

SOURCE: get to the loading screen and it freezes

Is there a memory card installed? If so, try removing it to see if the game will play without the card. You may have a corrupted save file for that game.

SOURCE: ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6

This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?

When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.

So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

Hope that helps,

But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

What is modding....how to install ext hard drive on the ps2 slim scph 90004


Modding is the process of putting a mod chip in the ps2 to read burned games and to hack games. I wouldn't recomend doing it because it is highly illegal.

My moded playstation 2 scph-90004 can't play 4.7gb dvd movies?


Depending on what modchip you used, sometimes DVD Playback can be lost, you need to ensure that your modchip supports DVD playback but there is a way around this, now that you have a modded system you can run arbitrary code and .elfs, just google "Free MCBoot for ps2 slim", after its setup download the media player for ps2 burnt it on a cd rom or put it on a pendrive and run it, Hope this helps...

  1. Check the mecanic gear.

  3. If you have SCPH - 5000 series, check the IC Driver (LA 6508).
  4. Check the ModChip.
  5. Check the IC SP 3727.
  6. Check the resistor (in 220 block), between IC Servo Master Control & IC Interface (CXD 9611 BR).
  7. Check the transistor (in socket optics= pin 6).

How to download a game tiohard drive


Ok, this will be a very long and tedious process... but here we go! First make sure your PS2 is modded with something like Free MC Boot (FMCB), The Independence Exploit, or a modchip. If you are able to play backups of games or homebrew, you are half-way there! If not, google around on how to do it. Then, get a copy of HDLoader from SKS-apps.com, it is available in the PS2 section. Add it to a USB drive. Boot up ULaunchELF, and select mass0: in the menu. Find HDLoader and press O (Circle). This will boot HDLoader. You will most likely have to format the drive. Select Yes to it. Now, insert your original game (it is harder with backups) and select install. Wait for it to finish. Remove the game. Press X on the game you want... and it works! Hope I helped you!

PS2 RESETS AT EVERY START UP


Sounds like there may be a modchip in there? When the CDVD points get bridged this happens.

PS2 won't read Original/Backup CD/DVD


The Purpose behind the guide to you is emulate your exploit disk, instead of using the disk you use, you're storing the exploit files themselves to your memory card ie. you're ps2 menu and HDloader and any other .elf file. Then you're using the PS1 (retail) game to cause a buffer overflow exploit to load the elf files stored on your memory card, once this is done you get that modified PS2 menu. As I said in the first clairication request the swapping stuff doesn't pertain to you becuase you have a mod chip installed. The main purpose for you to use what i posted eariler was to give you your modified .elf PS2 menu back (cuz all of your tools were stored before on your exploit CD wich is a non retail burned copy) this gives you a way to boot up with things that are native to the PS2 (memory card and retail PS1 game) from the .elf PS2 menu you should be able to see better what is going on becuase you can access each disk type contents from that menu and should be able to launch the game (if your laser lense is functioning enough to read retail PS1 games) from the menu itself. Or if you've been using HDloader plop that .elf onto the memory card (explained on my site) and just navigate to that via the .elf PS2 menu and you'll at least be able to load games stored on your hard drive. This is just something you can use till you get your new PS2 chipped out.

Of coarse this is all speculation. If your PS2 can't even read retail PS1 games none of this will even work.

Sry I don't know anyone that does the chipped stations nemore. I'm sure someone on this site still does though.

How to Install PS2 Modchip?


what you need: an IDE harddrive (maxtor or seagate works best. ive got a maxtor diamondback or whatever its called), the online adaptor and hdloader. hdloader can only be found on the internet so google it. if youre interested in my setup then you need the original hdloader then you can go to ps2hd.com and find all the other programs if youre interested in doing cogswap (play burned games without a chip) then also search that site for the ps2 exploit disc and cogswap. each harddrive is different and can require differnt jumper settings. look on your harddrive to figue out what is cs or check te company's website where you put your harddrive on the ide cable matters. when i first installed a secondary harddrive in my computer i had to shift my original harddrive down one position to make room for the secondary and allow it to take the secondary position on the ide cable. if you switch them then your computer will tell you "cannot find primary harddrive" and will not boot. one thing that i didnt mention is that you should also ground yourself after grounding the computer. your body can carry static electricity and if it gets discharged inside of your computer you can destroy components like RAM, the motherboard or even harddrives. to ground yourself touch a part of the metal casing of your computer. this will continue to be updated as i find more things that i forgot to say
