Anti mod ps2 model? –
Hi all. I recently bought the infinity chip, and according to mod-chip . com /en /ps2version .htm i figured to have v14 Pal (SCPH-75004 PAL).
Problem is when i started soldering i ran into something weird.
infinitymod. com /matrix /files /chips /Matrix%20Infinity /V14-V16/PAL-V14 .JPG
Section 1 area, where the dots are, are not possible to work with. I noticed on the schematics that it's not supposed to be green dots there (but unfortunatly there are green dots on my ps2). Is there a "workaround" or have I misunderstood which model my ps2 is?
Should I add more information? (it's a slim ps2
(o, and sorry for the inconvenient spaces in the urls, but it wouldn't allow me to type them otherwise :-/ )
the solder points are covered with laquer, I have the same model at the moment board no gh-041-14 but the layout is not like the diagrams for this board no. the b, g, i and y points are the same as v14 pal diagrams.As I am having difficulty getting a chip to work I wondr if these vias are connected to a different legs on the cdx chip, pin i should be 79, b 86 and g 81, when I check the via for i semms to link to pin 80
sorry vias for v14 pal diagram connect to correct pins on cdx
Realized i wrote some awful english. Here's the deal. I have GH-041-14 board. And there's no way for me to solder to the g,h,b,i points as stated in the schematics. Even after I've removed the lacquer.
And I've been advised not to solder directly to the chip (even if the cdx alternate is supposed to work). As this may render both ps2 and the mod chip useless.
It's a bit harder to solder these wires but not impossible. That's why you should be skilled in soldering before attempting to do it yourself. Be careful that the via doesn't disapear into the pcb.
