So you flashed your VALID dump and then made a backup? And they did not match?
This means the clip is not seated properly. Reseat the clip. Use something on top of the clip to keep constant pressure.
I guarantee, this is your problem.
EDIT - Also, clean the nor legs, and the clips pins, with 99% isopropyl alcohol.
