Dsm3 V9 –
i installed a dms3 in a V9 PS2. now the weird things. with chip enabled the ps2 boots with color and asks me for the language. with chip disabled in black and white and asking for language. to that cmes a clicking laser doesn't matter if chip is on or off.
anyone know what's the clicking sound is? the drive does spin for half a second and then it's clicking. no games or whatever work. and why does it ask for the language every time i start up?
thanks in advance
Dunno if this is your problem .. but i've tested my ps2 1st with dvd-/+rw's movies.
i can't test it at all. every media i insert spins for half a second then it clicks sometime and that's it. the browser screen stays there. not even a dre.
edit: didn't see the link you added but i don't think that is the problem. the clicking started as soon as the ps2 got power. and i did the romeo mod before.
clicking sound mostly means a dead laser... (did you do the romeo mod correctly ? did you test the ps2 after the romeo mod but BEFORE the dms install ??? If not, then you can't be sure.... asking for language means something is wrong at the bios)
ps: the romeo mod will not save your laser, but your la from burning.
You bridged somewhere on the bios chip, controller chip or the vias. Check your soldering, I'm positive that's the problem. I had it happen to me once... I didn't see a very small ammout of solder stuck in between to legs on the bios. It's like invisible to the naked eye... you need magnifying glasses to see it. Go get a needle and pry anything out inbetween those legs.
Also, make sure you have every wire where they're suppose to go. Could also be a wiring mistake. This wire is suppose to go here but you put it there. So yeah. check your work is all I'm saying.
the unit works if i remove the wires form the chip so the laser is fine.
i tested every singel connection with a multimeter and they were good. could this be caused if some wires are crossing? i taped them down but some of them came loose and are now crossed
Like TO7N said, it's a wire problem or a bridge of the legs on the bios. Reinstall your chip and look it over really good when done. Make sure to double check your connections and points and make sure all solder balls are cleaned off the board.
guess i'll have to do that... a 3rd time... will inform you if it works
It pays to check the surrounding 5cm radius or so after each solder point thoroughly. It may take a few extra minutes, but at least it won't eat up all your time later on.
Oh man, you should've removed the power wire only. If you still have problems when it's your soldering... =/ If you don't get the problem then it could be that you either soldered the chip wrong... wires that are suppose to go here you soldered it there and stuff like that. OR you could have a bad chip...
