DMS3 V5 probs –
Hi. Ive just done my first PS2 mod. When I turn it on I get a flicker and a black screen, and the DVD drive doesnt spin. Any ideas?
Arrrrr, best thing ya can do is take a pic of it and post it, so's that other installers that have done this chip a number a times can see if any wires or something be crossed. Sounds ta me like something isn't connected or a there be a solder bridge somewheres.
GETTING THERE..... I had a short on the back of the board. Now I can get it to boot when I hold down the eject botton. Black screen otherwise.... What does this mean?!!?
Look over your CDVD and Bios points..
RIGHT. Ive doubled my gnd and 3.3 wires and made d&e twisted pair, and grounded them to the edge of the board the the dms3 gnd point.
When I switch it on, it takes a few seconds to display anything, but then it starts as normal. It will boot PS1 backups if I hold down Circle, but it wont boot ps2 backups. Nor will it boot the DMS3 upgrade CD. Does anybody know what the problem might be? Also is it normal for the PS2 to take a few seconds to display anything once a modchip is fitted?
edit: btw holding triangle works and it goes into the browser
