I'm trying to install magic 3.1 and burnt my new SCPH-30006R NTSC-J (Asian) set in the process, grr..
Here's the scenario:
a. THE NIGHTMARE STARTS: For some reasons (still regreted that till now), I've plucked out EVERY cables(connectors)..yup..stripped the set into various pieces (ie Mainboard,DVD module,Memory card's slot,..) WARNING: pls dont do this, it's not required, follow disassembly guides from the net!
b. GOT DVD-MODULE BURNT
After assembly all of them back to one piece, I tried to power it on. At first, I could see the "Sony Entertainment" logo screen and everything seems fine. But when I tried to play games, the set failed to read (tray still able to slide in/out at this moment). After a while, I smelt something burning (omg!) and confirmed that a component (looks like a surface-mount capacitor or resistor but cant differentiate as it's burnt2-black-charcoaled, and the number looks like 2K2 or 2R2) is burnt. Please refer to the pic below. After that, as expected, the tray is not moving anymore, heh.
c. MAINBOARD MIGHT BE BURNT OSO: The worst is not over yet. Fearing that I might damaged more parts, I detached ONLY the damaged DVD Module from the rest of the set. With that, I power on the set again, and could still see "Sony Entertainment" logo, but everything stuck there. After few tries, again..the burning smells overwhelmed me (pretty sensitive nose I've got there). On the next try after the sensational smells, everythings went dead, nothing shows on the tv set. (I did something great again rite?)
d. A SAD ENDING: With the damaged DVD module detached, all I could see after power up is: a RED led from RESET button lights up, on pressing it, it turns GREEN and BLINK, and fan starts spinning, but nothing is shown on TV. I could only confirmed that the "power supply board" is still working as it still pumps out 12V.
1. Can anyone (with the same board) pls tell me what is that component and it's exact value? If possible, pls send me a high resolution pic of this affected area as I got them quite messed up after trying to manually remove and replace the component (till some of the solder tracks comes out)
2. Can we just power up the main board (with EVERYTHING else detached, except for the RESET/EJECT cable) and expect to see something on TV? Is it safe to do this?
3. Did Sony Engineers implemented any "disassemble-n-kaboom" circuitry? (hee..this might sounds stupid)
4. Any good sites for PS2 Repair parts? (as a last resort)
It's a long story, so thanks for the attention. Any feedback is very much appreciated...have a good day!
