Help! problems with green dot on v9
This is my second attempt at installing this chip.
I almost managed to get the first ps2 working (a v3) but before I did I killed it.:mad:
Whist playing with it I tried to flash the bios but the progress bar didn't move.
Therefore the bios on the MI may well be corrupted.
I've installed it into a v9 into which I've also fitted a new laser.
V9 working fine with new laser prior to MI install:)
When I start the PS2 I don't get the MI logo, but I kinda wasn't expecting it due to the bios being suspect. But the PS2 does start and go to the browser.
When I try and load ANY disc it gives "disk read error", this includes original ps2 games plus firmware upgrade CD
Even if I try to disable the MI by holding the reset button on start, I still keep getting a read error.
I've tried to model my install on pictures from the site. The MI is sat adjacent to the BIOS chip and the bios wires are routed without crossing. I've used the alternate points for A,B,G,I as I didn't fancy soldering onto the pins of that large chip close to the BIOS. (how do you guys do that???!!!!:wow: )
Any ideas as to where the probem may lie??:crazy:
