V12 SCEX component and alt location (solved)
V12 SCEX component and alt location (solved) –
While I was connecting the SX point on a V12 I had the misfortune of bumping the wire after soldering it. It shattered the component that it is recommended to be installed to. The good news is I have the component value from Luke@infinity (and I promised I'd share as I could not find this info in this forum):
and some additional info; on the older PS2's these components were larger, but of a similar value. I was able to find one using my trusty mulitmeter (and am quite thankful for the fact I made sure I got one that can measure capacitance), and thanks to the via close by the origional I was able to fit the larger component in place of they tiny one.
the component is a capacitor 0.0047 uF (4700 picoFarad) Ceramic 10% 50V
I moved the SX wire to one of the chip legs instead, see attached image for alternate location.
I'm living without this cap for months now, no prob.
