Intressting about old diode laserfixes.
Intressting about old diode laserfixes. –
I live in Norway, and I would say that 95% of installers here use diode fixes that comes with chips as MARS, MI clones etc etc.
All machines I get in where i take a look in them, its always that neo fix ii or diode fix or something in them.
Well, ppl on these boards are talking very bad about these fixes, sooo, im wondering, how come most ppl use them ??
And the lasers dont seem to burn up either.
Can it be , that PS2's in Norway/Europe are manufactored another place in the world making them better quality than forexample the PS2 that is sold in US.. ??
I dunno, i just find it a little strange that the lasers dont burn out on these machines.
I use neofix becuase my chip supplyer sais it is the best and chips them with every V12 compatible chip. Allthough I know changed to summ0nes fix
"I dunno, i just find it a little strange that the lasers dont burn out on these machines."
Something that people on this or any other PS2 forum can not and will never except is the fact 90% of all mod-chip related issues are due to bad installs. I have so many times repaired consoles that was modified by incompotent people that claim they know how to install it or are "electronic engineers", they also claim that there is nothing wrong with their install or soldering skills. But after inspecting the consoles it will normally have every wire on the board crossing each other about 400 times, the wires are made as long as possible and the solder work could have been done better with a welding machine. And for some reason they do not understand why the chip gives so many hassles.
I have never had a burnt coil on a v12 console with over 200 v12 installs, I only use the pic fix and nothing else. I also do not have customers complaining about consoles that turn off the whole time. (so, not getting many crashes)
So ESPEN what I am trying to say is that you are most probably one of the few that actually do propper installs.
I have had one or two that gave me issues using the Neo Fix XII, and guess what, it was install, to much heat on the resistors that the chip solders to, my own fault... Replaced the resistors and all was good, so i don't know how people are saying that these diode/pic fixes are crap, they seem to be doing there job just fine and i have done a couple hundred of them...
In my opinion why fix/change something if it ain't broken...
