chip location ?????? –
Hi everyone i have just installed my first modchip (matrix infintiy Green dot) and all went well and all works well the only prob is when i put the case back on it dosent work (blank screen) so its nipping something somewere but there doesnt seem to be anywere flat enough to place the chip on my board i have a v14 board any ideas as were the best place to place the chip is or any other ideas would be great !!!
Thanks in advance Ebo
try putting electrial tape over the chip
I placed the MI as close to the 3.3V & GND as possible. Thats closely on the left from the number 4 spot of the V14-diagram. I used some anti-static foil to put on top of the chip. Electrical tape will do also. You have to prevent shortages when you put the metal casing back.
On the v14 i have i have to place the chip on top some resistors or diodes they are the small black blocks with contacts either end as there is no space big enough on the board to attach to without doing this, this then causes the case to fit very tightly which is what i think my problem is. Would it be ok to insulate the chip and gently screw the case up but not to tight or does anybody have anyother suggestions where to place it or anything ??
