Installed MI in V5 - Power light comes on then goes off - no power!
Installed MI in V5 - Power light comes on then goes off - no power! –
just installed a MI Blue Dot into a V5 ps2, the install went well, i have rechecked each wire and cant find a fault at all.
when i turn on the ps2 by the switch, the red power light comes on for a split second then goes off, then nothing! (the fan doesnt even come on during this split second)
anyone know what is happening? the ps2 was working fine before, it had Neo2.2 installed before, took that out and installed the MI.
could it be the 3.3V wire on the MI? i didnt have any thick stuff so i twisted 2 kynar wires together and used that for the 3.3V?
many thanks for your help!
edit: install pic attached!

This same thing happend with my v14 short green light no fan on them back to the red light! But my v14 doesnt have a chip just some LED's
CC1.1 v7 PS2
just an update,
checked the fuses and they seem to be ok, and have checked the psu and that is working fine aswell.
i then took the mod out and its still doing the same thing. This leads me to believe that:
1. One of the Fuses have gone
2. Solder Splash - somewhere but i cant find it
3. Eject ribbon faulty
can anyone tell me the the procedure of checking the fuses? im using this diagram as reference: http://www.psrtech.co.uk/fuses/v5_gh-015_fuses.jpg
set my multimeter to Ohms and measured across the fuses, what reading should i be getiting? i have been told that getting no reading at all is bad, and getting any reading is good. if you have a look on the diagram the values are in the red balloons, im not getting the same values for some of them, does that mean the fuses have gone?
Sounds like a short between POWER and GROUND or a bridge on the CD/DVD wires. Carrefully check and clean all flux. Even with a multimeter you cannot read a short or bridge caused by flux.
