help with macromod –
hi all, i am a installing a neo macromod in a v5-6 r series ps2
i am a great solderer and there is no problems with the wires, but i programmed my own chip. as i have done sence 1995 when the old crow first relased one of the first hexes..
anyway i installed the mod and it will get video and sound. but the movie will not start
the start up ps2 screen starts, goes to black. flickers like it should for the start of a dvd, but the play in the upper corner never starts. and no matter how long i wait it wont play.
now i think i have narrowed it down to my program settings if someone could help me with one area i think this may be the problem
i am using microchip mplab, with a microchip pic programmer
oscillator internal rc
watchdog timer off
code protect off
master clear internal
i think my error is in the master clear should be external
can someone help to verify or at least point me in the right direction?
May be a short –
You have the correct settings:
-Oscillator internal RC
-Watchdog timer OFF
-Code protect OFF
-Master clear OFF
I think that you have done a short between pin 5 and 6 of 12C508, the Microcontroller have not been damaged but the SMD 10k resistor array (labeled 107). It has 4 resistors, but only two are used, you have just to desolder it and use the working ones... or change it for a working one.
Test the continuity of the resistor array to verify this.
