magic 2 –
OK I have been in & checked my mnop which although possibly a fault looks ok now. But after installing a magic 2 into a V7 I still have.
A black screen, then a very brief blue flicker before going back to a black screen.
The CD drive starts to whirr for a second then stops (from boot up). The drive takes a long time to eject & when it does, there is no operation from the drive to suggest it is trying to read the disc.
My G & D wires on the board were touching which I believe was the cause of me not having a blue light at boot up.
My 5V wire had also initially come loose which may have affected something.
I'm sure somebody has encountered the blue flicker before!
All feedback greatfully appreciated.
I should have deleted this post like I did the same one on the other forum but I felt sorry for you. The blue flicker occurs on every boot up on every console when RESET is pressed. It's just a piece of squelch as everything resets and capacitors discharge etc - or something like that.
Look at your soldering again. You do have a continuity tester, yes?
Omg Im bin a nugget lol askin daft questions!
Will hide my face with embarrassment 4 a week - but I did only buy a PS2 to rip apart so I never really had chance to see how it behaves in normal mode.
Tis my current hobby m8, when I've sussed it, I'll prob get bored & do something else (Giz a gamecube lol).
Entirely the right attitude!
