Any Advice --Crystal chip stopped working –
My ps2 and chip has been working fine for a good time now.
Yesterday i was lazy and didn't turn off my ps2. It stayed on from 7am to about 7-730pm when i came home from work. I played it and turned it off. Today it stopped booting up to alternate dash. The original came up and wouldn't play any of my backups or original.
I opened it up and plugged it in to check the light on the mod chip. The light on the chip isn't on. ( it should be blue right?) I assumed it is fried !! If anyone has/had experienced this and fixed it could you please fill me in. I would like to avoid buying a new chip if this one can be fixed, but if it comes to it i'll get a new on. I checked the soldering points 2 times with a magnifier. It is soldered good.
Chip should blink one time if it was installed correctly. Does firmware 34 cd boot? I had similiar issue (one time), and reinstalling firmware and BM worked for me.
well i didn't see it blink once at all. .but when i get home from work i'll check again for the light.
If i happen to see a light i will try loading the BM. But im sure i didnt see a light at all that is y i thought it may have been fried
is there an alternative 3.3v point for the v15 ps2 gh051-02??
