Slim PS2 recovery: bad flash.
Slim PS2 recovery: bad flash. –
I downloaded the v1.75 firmware upgrade, burnt to CD, and started update, however it didn't move from 0%.
After restart, my PS2 will no longer boot up, with or without a disc.
I can turn on the PS2, but nothing at all appears on screen.
I am trying to recover and reflash the firmware, but have been unable to reset it.
I have pressed the reset button, but that only turns on/off my ps2.
I'm not sure of v, how can I check the version? serial number is attached on ps2.
what do I do?
stop buying shitty clone chip your chip is dead hahaha
You have been of great assistance.
Thank you very much for your well structured and informative post. A++++ would read again. Well done.
friend22: It would appear you do have a clone chip. There's no way to check exactly what chip's in the PS2 without opening it up.
For recovery mode, you need to hold down the power button for a second or two, it should then boot up and load up the FW cd.
Judging from what you've said though, that's not going to help. Not moving from 0% + dead almost always means it's a clone chip.
You have no real option now except to replace it. Plus go back to the installer and stab them to death.
I bought this ps2 second hand off a guy from uni, so yehr, no idea if it's clone or not.
oh just curious, how much does it cost to get the chip replaced. would you know?
is US$ or AU$.
