help bad modchip install –
Ok i tried to install a crystall chip pro in my v4 no gap bios but now when i switch on the ps2 the sounds all wrong it sounds like a cheap alarm sound in the start menu,and when i put a game in it goes into the browser but it wont start,it keeps going back into the browser.Is my ps2 broken,i took out the modchip but no change
Check your fuses first, then check for solder splashes on the board and on the chip legs to make sure you don't have any bridges. Use a multimeter to do this.
yeah i have to buy one of those meters to check the fuses,iv got another ps2 v4 broken laser,so i think ill switch the lasers.Then i can try to fix the other one,the solder iron i used the first time wasnt the best,i might give it another go when i get a new iron,old one was 15w very slow,new ones 30w,its a .8mm tip is that to big,i have the wire so thats ok.
As long as you're incredibly careful, that tip shouldn't be too big.
If you're too afraid to do it, hire someone who knows how to do it.
I used a craptacular Radio Shack iron to do the job. The tip of the iron broke on me, luckily it busted right after I finished the install. My PS2's been running strong since March, even though the install was less-than-great.
Hey thanks EJM for the help,i got one of those meters cheap on ebay,checked the bios chip and there was a bridge on it,it was the P wire bridged to the third chip leg in,allmost impossible to see.The meter deffinately made it alot easier to find.I broke the bridge with a needle,tested it,no bridge,put it back together and bye bye weird sound lol.Got to install the modchip again,but at least i can test for bridges before i put it back together now.Thx again,thought id never it back from the dead,lol
Got my chip in and its working,oh yeah.Now i want to put ulaunch on the startup,cause thats what i used before with my hard drive.
Good to hear you got it working. A DVM should be considered a standard issue tool when working with modchips and PS2's.
I install ULE get the megapack and install it to your MC, then you will be able to execute ULE from within BM.
