Broken PS2 –
HI I have just been asked to see if I can repair a V4 PS2 which I chipped about 1 year ago. I plugged it in and there is no red power light its completely dead. So I checked the fuse in the mains plug that's ok, I checked the fuse on the PSU that's ok. There seems to be power coming from the PSU which I checked with a meter and its the same reading as I got from my V3 PSU so I assume that the PSU is ok.
So has any one got any ideas what else I could check
Sorry if this post is in the wrong place
Make sure the Ribbon cable that connects the Reset/eject switch to the Mainboard is secured tight, and is not damaged.
Tryed a different cable and switch
was it a modchip failure? try taking the chip out, see if that is.
I will try that and let you know
Thanks everyone I sorted it now it was the fuse PS1 which had blown.
