i think my modchip or ps2 is dead!!! –
i posted this a while ago cuz it wasent reading discs so a few days ago i said wtf to try it again with an original (dvd)game and original (cd) game. It went to the brower/system screen and then booted up the games so i was wtf is goin on here. then i tryed dvd-r, ps1 games, cd-r and no go went to red screen. so i opened my ps2 and i found (check picture) . it looks to me that some of the componets on the board are melted and the 2 power wires on the chip are melted. so is my chip f'ed or my ps2.
Ouch. Because originals work I would say that the chip is fried and your PS2 was very lucky.
I can't say what happened to the Magic 2, but something shorted and it drew current until it gave up and didn't short any more.
so you think the chip is dead. but my ps2 is lucky to be alive. as long as the ps2 is okay. you think it can be moded again?
Rememebr I'm several thousand miles away from you so the photo and your words govern this case.
The PS2 SEEMS OK because it plays originals. The wiring MIGHT be OK and a Magic 3.1 moving 5v to 3.3 v should be the easiest transition. Again, get LOD to do it.
thx for your diagnosis you know of any us or canadian sites that sell premodded dms3 ps2's
