My PS2 (v5 dms3) has been working on and off for the past couple of weeks, mainly off and i wanted to get it all 100% sorted!
Problem 1. Blown fan fuse, problem being solved thanks to Entity supplying a spare fuse (hopefully) , for now ive been able to get by either before it overheats or using a battery with the fan. So this problem is potentially s0rted.
Problem 2. Does not boot DVDs originals or backups, i recently tried to correct this problem by adjusting the pots for the dvd, however I had no success and now I get a long black screen (2-5 secs) before ps loads up.
Problem 3. Does not boot up 100% successfuly, I recently changed media which at first i thought made a big difference, although they are better still not a 100% successful boot rate.
It has been working but im getting so annoyed with unscrewing and screwing it back up only to no avail so I was hoping for some near accurate answers and not some guesses. What do you thinks is the best and most systematic approach to get it working? All the connections seem sound on the chip and mobo, although if i were to rewire it i would clean up the wires & route them cleanly around any chips that cause interferance, and to do the ground wire twist with points D & E which currently I havnt.
Like 1st , check this , then if this is that, do this... then do this, then do that lalalala.ect.
1. fix fan fuse first.
2. 2-5 sec delay for splash screen display is not that unnormal for this chip. It 'looks' for a button press on start up, x,o, square, triangle, etc in that 2-5 sec. If you remove the controller you'll find it takes quite abit longer then 2-5 sec to boot up.
3. Mucking with your DVD pots is never a good thing. Check that it boots DVD originals O.K. with the chip disabled.
4. Back out of your install and either choose an easier chip to install or reroute the wires according to their (DMS) specs.
