Where do I put it on the wire???? Between what and what??
Actually, that link you have is for a non-polarized cap. This may or may not work I do not know. I use a 1uf polarized cap. I dont think Radio Shack has that. Anyway, solder 1 end to the S pad on the chip and then solder the wire going to your S connection to the other lead.
If you can find it, you can use a .47uf - 1uf polarized capacitor.
Where did you get yours??
I bought like 100 of them or so from Jameco
What do they look like because Iam having a hard time trying to find on. Does Radioshack carry them?
does anyne have any extras?
1uF 35V Tantalum capacitor fro Radio Shack will do the job. As Guichi says, positive towards Magic 2. Can go anywhere in the S line. Prolly easiest to solder the + to the Magic 2 and - to the removed wire; prolly best to put the - to the SCEx point and the + to the removed wire.
Start with the easy route.
I have some old 1uf 100v capacitators from the original PS2 modding days, can I use these for the same purpose?
