Dead PS2s after Romeo Mod?!
In the last time I did some Romeo Mods (about 50) and all worked fine. But a week ago I destroyed 3 new PS2s and wasn´t able to fix them yet. Now I am afraid to do the Romeo Mod again.
It were all new PS2s (two V9 an one V10). I first did the Romeo Mod and they worked. Then I modded the consoles with a Ripper 2 Gold and only original Games worked, no backaups.
This indicates that the Modchip is not working. After testing all solder points etc. I deceided to remove the Modchips. After that the consoles reacted like the LA was dead. :banghead:
I checked the heat pad, soldering points, solder splashes etc. and didn´t find the error. I also tried to change the LA-Chip in one console - but it didn´t work.
Now I am confused if I should do the Romeo Mod with new PS2s in the future.
What did I wrong?
I always test the ohm value of the coils. Is it safe if the value of both is above 4,5 Ohms?
Thx for your help!
