dms3 wont work on ps2 v7
dms3 wont work on ps2 v7 –
Hi fooks i have playstation 2 version v7 board gh-022 bios 080.
I installed the chip as it was suggested in the dms manual, and looked carefull at the powerpoint etc
but it doenst boot backups at all so no dvd-r/+r and no psx1
it seems if the chip is not active at all, then i checked the reset wire no problem there, the i followed the troubleshoot guide of dms, and could not find any error
orignals works fine
what could be the problem
Heh, join the club. Im in the process of re-installing mine. I'll let post when I'm done.
Most likley BAD install if the PS2 powers up and you get video and sound but does not boot any games check all points again!
I shall make a total remod of the ps2 i got some pictures how to prevent crosstalk and how i must place the wires the best way
btw orginal games boot flawless and also audio disc boot flawless and if i put a ps1 backup with audio tracks on it i only get to see the cdplayer menu to play the tracks
sound and video are ok

Has any one figured out this problem yet? If so please advice since I have this similar situation on my PS2 v7 w/ DMS3
Thanks In Advance
ok well remeber GND has to be THICK and close to the chip and power has to be thick a wire also.
now you have to check all BIOS CHIp connections to make sure they are all connected us a magnify glass
The ps2 is now totaly dead, the boot screen without media comes up, but it doesnt load any media, i removed the chip no luck
Something is bridged dude. Look it over carefully. I've seen boards where customers brought them to me and a hair line of solder was touching 2 points causing a short making alot of shit go wrong. If you decide to reinstall the DMS3, Lay the wires flat down like in this guide - http://www.dms3.com/diagrams/installation_tips.htm I had ignored the guide, then when I did it as follows laying the wires flat, and away from other bios wires, it worked like a charm. Im typing this tierd so sorry for spelling or any other correction thats needed. Good luck dude.
nothing is bridged i took the multimeter to check it up, so what could be wrong i fried bios
Ok - highly unlikely that you fried the bios - if the station still loads.
I would check all fuses on the board. check for loose solder balls and splashes etc.
Make sure you have not crimped or scratched through any of the ribbon cables - ensure the Laser ribbon cable has not pulled loose from the lense side - I had a perfect install fail on me due to this - it had pulled slightly loose and took ages to identify as the fault.
Lastly with the V7 stations they do appear to randomly blow drives so - you may need to replace the drive - check to see if the cd still spins at all etc.
