Charlie, how is the outcome ?
Charlie, how is the outcome ? –
Char, U told me, U're gonna to solder the Z connection in ur chip, even if ur chip isn't a underlined one, well, the result ? I hope it works
I've got AR2/v2 and it works OK. We soldered the Z point but then Ar2 worked with the blue V5 model too - no Z point!
So, is there any logical explanation for this ?
There is a good technical explanation for the problem which is to do with the PS2's normal treatment when using the EJECT button which should be over-ridden by GS2/AR2. If this is captured by Magic 2 rather than passed through it is treated as a requirement to check region at just the time when you don't want to.
any idea why on my unit it doesn't work like the other ?
maybe 'cause my unit is IC type unit ?
scph 30001 R
I'm left with only the difference that I've got AR2/v2 to work with codes on the 39001 and you can't get AR2v1.9 to work.
Could you state the full problem detail again as I can't keep referring to another thread.
SCPH 30001 R
Gold PCB magic II the label is only says "R"
Can't boot with codes
Then the underline model with Z wire was intended to cure the situation. As I said on my PS2s, AR2/v2.0 boots perfectly with codes and I have no underline model!
So there is 2 kind of solutions :
1. Thrash the old chip, and buy the new chip (throwing 94 US$ outta window, then buy the new chip)
2. Try to solder the Z point, with the possibly results:
- it boots with codes
- it won't boot with codes and also it won't boot back ups (LOD have posted about it several times)
- it won't boot with codes, back up, and the DVD doesn't play correctly, buy a new PS2 unit
-it boots with codes, but there is something "funny" about the DVD movie playback
Should one of this occurs, what should I do ? take out the Z connection, and everything will back to normal ? I hope so....
