CXP102064 chip on PS2

ive messed up trying to solder a magic chip on a PS2 v3 board...
PLEASE LETME KNOW...
board: V3 europe
thanks in advance for some support...
forgoted to mencion this site...
thanks for some help
If you can get your hands on a v4, the cd/dvd controller chips are the same.
The CXP-102064 is a proprietary Sony device and is not available on the free market except as a rescued spare.
And may I ask you how the heck are you planning to resolder that thing in your PS2?
SMD soldering station...
i will need to find a broken v3/v4 mobo to get it :(
well... thanks fot the help
Did you broke one of the chip pins ? why you don't just unsolder it then try to fix the chip you have ?
Ah... The replacement MUST be taken from a european board. If you get a chip from a US or Jap board you might get your machine partially transformed into a such region unit. As that chip is the microcontroller of the DC/DVD drive and it has the region coding into it's internal PROM.
Edit : added information
yes... i only broked 2 pins... :( :(
but i dont think i can repair that... ill try... couse im nothing to loose...
but the damn pins r a bit dificult to reach... toooo small
yes.. will need to buy a european mobo
its kinda hard to find... and the price! is almost the same as new..
I dont think you will need a european model as long as it carries the same chip numbers, ive replaced a couple with 100% success.
soldering them on is the easy bit its getting hold of them!!!
hmmm... i think the chip gots difernt coding... depending the area... jp/us/eu! but im not for shure....
its kinda hard to find really helpfull info bout this chip! ive founded a site that sell its online, www.usbid.com
but... its impossible to me... to buy it in large scale amounts..
ill keep on search...
