Duo 2 SE v5 install –
I connected all the wires, checked for shorts, and checked for connectivity. Everything seems to be fine. However, when I boot up with a burned cd, ps2 says please insert a valid ps2 or psx disc. Any suggestions on what could be the problem?
retouch all points bios and dvd/cd. make sure you have the ground conected. duble up on 30awg for ground and power u want them to be super short
CD/DVD points look fine, and test fine. My power line is a big long though, it's connected to the power, like shown here. http://www.duomodchip.com/english/in.../duo2se_v5.jpg
While my chip is situated between zones 1 and 3 on the same page, and I'm grabbing the ground from zone 5, as shown in the pic. I think it's a power issue, because the ps2 is working like the chip isn't there at all. Any suggestions on what to do? BTW, for ground and power I used 24 AWG. thanks.
I changed the ground, it seems the chip is working now. Before I changed the ground, I was getting RSOD with backups but genuine played fine. After moving the ground closer, now, no matter what I put in, backup or original, it goes straight to browser, and shows no data. I checked all of the points with a multimeter, and there are no shorts. The BIOS legs LOOK like it MIGHT be a short, but multimeter says they're fine, I checked like 4 times. It might be a laser problem, but it was working fine when the ground was long, which leads me to... I don't know. What could be the problem?
post a picture of the install
I don't have a digital camera off hand, but I'll try to post a pic this week. I redid the bios legs with razor blade... no go.
What points (letters) can make the DVD/CD reader like this go iffy?
Any other suggestions for now? I'm still trying to secure a digital camera...
Well you have tryed it all rechek the Z and Rest they might be mixed up ..At this point you might want to remove it all. clean all points you solder to make sure its still working then try to reinstall .. Make sure you arent crossing any of your wiers and your ground and power are very short you shuld try placing the chip over the part between the LA and the bios chip that lookis like this on the board |||||||||||| Place some black tape ther then superglue the sucker ther. Good luck .. if all els fales it culd be a bad chip or your just not doing sumthing right in the instal .. If your in Socal you can come by my palce and i culd fit the sucker for you and redo the software on the chip to ice final as the duo se Is old Ice code. Or mail it in $35 for the install $11 for s&H and an extra $15 incase the duo is dead i will replace with Ice Final.
Good Luck and may god be on your side
The thing is, if I remove the ground, then the chip is effectively off, and it works fine. So I know my points are good. Could it be a laser or chip issue?
