GH-005 wont boot PSX –
I have a Ver 1 PS2 with a Smartchip installed.
PS2 originals, DVD rips, Backups, DVD, DVD-R/ DVD+R and DVD movies all boot.
PSX originals and backups will not boot.
I even disabled the chip still no boot. I disconnected the SCEX point, still no boot.
I thought i had it booting PSX when I first installed 2 months ago, but honestly cant remember if I tested this unit or not.
I was also pleased to find out that it would play DVD+R, I did not think I was supposed to be able too.
What could be causing the PSX issue?
OH, it boots psx to the PS2 blue/gold disk screen.
I am currently using that spot, I even moved the Clk to the 54MHz Crystal.
I wire wraped the SCEX Just now also. Ill keep trying....
Still no go, Tried a different chip same crap....
it should work.. ive never had problems with the older systems.. your ps2 backups work ok ?
yes, PS2 works fine,
Got pissed off and removed chip, (bad mistake) Pad came off of SCEX point. If you now which pin on the Smartchip itself is, I can just solder to the Leg of that.
