Noob needs some answers :) –
I am from the UK. I brought a DMS 4 SE Lite modchip and recived it today.
I am a noob to this but i will be able to do the relvant soldering.
I recieved the wires, some solder and the chip (+ a v12 fix). No instructions or anything.
From what i can make out i believe i have a PS2 Version 5/6 (SCPH 30009R) and i have the install instructions from the website i brough it from:
1. Is all i have to do is solder the wires to the correct place, then switch it on?
2. Where should the modchip be placed inside the ps2?
3. Do i have the version number right?

are you sure its 30009
I have only heard of
a UK v5/6 should be 30003R
I have found thats it's a version 4 by looking on the motherboard.

You will have to flash the bios on it before you can play any backups. It will only boot homebrew apps/games out the box. You will have to goto http://www.teamtoxic.com.cn and download the Toxic Bios 1.4 (not the Toxic OS 0.41 as this is for the PRO chips only and not the LITE chips) and burn that to a cd and boot it up and follow the on screen instructions and than you will be able to play backups, etc.
As for where to place the chip, look here http://www.psx-scene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11400 for some ideas. There is 53 pages of ps2 installs, so you should get a good idea of how others do it. Use the diagram from the dms site here at http://www.dms3.com/dms4se/diagrams/..._GH-008_13.jpg for the v4 if you're sure thats the version you have. For points O,P,W,V use either the top or bottom points, not both.
You sound like you're never done a ps2 before and I don't know about your soldering experience, but ps2's can be a bitch at first. I practised a lot on old pc motherboards and video cards before I even touched a ps2.
Hope that helps and good luck.
Thanks very much for your reply.
http://www.teamtoxic.com.cn seems to be down at the moment. I'll have a look when it's back up.
I've had a look at the ps2 installs, very impressive. This will be my first time installing a modchip on a ps2, i need to buy a new soldering iron first, my other one is a bigger one and is too big for this job.
Thanks for the info.
Ya, the team toxic site is down at the moment. If you get it all installed, and the site is still down pm me and I'll send it to you. I ended up getting an antex soldering iron just for ps2's and small soldering like it. I got it here http://www.hmcelectronics.com/cgi-bi...uct/6520-0001/ and some of their 1/64" tips.
We have got the soldering iron tonight (antex one aswell acually :P) and will be looking to install it. The site still seems to be down. is there a possibility that you might be able to send it over?
here you go. Unzip this, and burn the bin/cue using nero/alcohol/etc and put the disc in the ps2, follow the on screen instructions and you should be ok.
Well we installed it last night but it looks although something went wrong, it just comes up with a black screen which the white stuff comming up on the screen every couple of seconds. Any idea what could be wrong?
turn it on and then press reset again straight away, thats how most are using them, on dms forums, it seems that lots of the se chips are having the same problem, it is a fault with the chip
