another need help post v10 –
ive got a v10, installed a mxl2 in and it didnt boot originals or backups, so i removed wires systematically until the chip had been fully removed. its still doesnt boot, i even undid the romeo thinking that was why it never read games, backup or originals. ps2 originals dont read, audio cd's read fine, an original ps1 booted up to the ps logo, then the drive made some funky noises. i didnt solder onto the bios legs, i used the pads below it, i also soldered to the vias on the back. i did try to solder onto the cd/dvd controller but i got fed up so i went to the vias. i checked for bridges between the bios points and its all fine. the only way i can test the dvd controller legs were by checking for continuity between the vias and the legs and all seems fine. coils read +5ohms each.
can you please tell me if there is continuity between the 2 pins that are between points A & B on the install diagram?
what else can i look for?
