DMS3 V2 Chip Help!!
After all the rigid tests with multimeter and careful wire installation with I came to the conclusion that the DMS3 v2 Silver chip that I received from you is bad!
I spend a lot off days installing and troubleshooting the connections but all my efforts were in vain. I did the double ground and power wire as you mentioned and also the twisted pair on wire D + E but without luck. Everything remained the same.
Even went to the DMS3 support forum and search for info but did not have the luck to get the DMS chip to work with the PS2 V7 console.
The console in which the chip is installed is from a customer which is constantly giving me trouble. The console is not playing the backup DVD's and CD's but only original PS2 and PS1 discs.
The Red Screen which says to insert a PS2 or Ps1 disc appears now and it does not boot the backup discs anymore. Thorough test, of which I tried to play an audio cd, plays smoothly without playing choppy (freezing). That is just an example that the chip is not working. Checked the power and ground connections, but these are secured I also tried to upgrade the firmware to 1.6c or 1.8, but the system shows me the red screen again. Pressed the appropriate button on the game controller to boot in the proper mode (DVD, PS1, DEV or PS2), but it does not recognize the mode.
I never had this problem with any console that I have modded before. Can guarantee you that every wire is installed correctly and that are no bridges!
