black screen & no sound –
does anyone know if there is a fix for this?
i have seen this 3 or 4 times now ver 7 with magic 2 installed, these where installed at the time ver 7 appeared last year & before messiah 2 was available for ver 7
boot console and games plays original or backup but there is no picture or sound & no meteor intro screen nothing, yet looking at laser movement the console is working fine, i have only seen this happen on magic 2's on approx 12 months old & removing chip is still same except only originals will play
all fuses are ok or at least i think they are
anyone any idea
i dont have the solution.... but have the same problem
i have a few boards like this....& 1 of them hasnt been chipped
usually its the bios at fault with pins shorted.. but ive checked that already...
hi SAME F..N problem -villasq tell me that this is crystals but I don't know X102 or X302 LOOK at general my posts.
i found on 2 motherboards that the graphics chip is responsible, a dry joint it would appear, if i touch the chip it would work so i would say the boards are scrap as a repair looks impossible or impractable
I have had this problem and found that it is the ground (in most cases). Make sure the ground is short and solid move it around if you have to (their lots of good grounds to choose from).
Most of the time when you do a ground you should turn up the heat on the soldering iron (I set mine to 30 watts). You do this because the area your heating is bigger than most connections and takes more heat to get a good connection.
mod god, i have removed the mod on this & have cleaned the mobo ect, the prob lies on the underside, i removed the graphics chip to see how it was fitted now i know i intend to heat graphics chip to on other see if that sorts it
