magic 3 black screen only in ps2 mode not in PS1/DVD mode
magic 3 black screen only in ps2 mode not in PS1/DVD mode –
Ive installed a Magic 3 chip in a v7.
first time the magic 3 was a bad chip and did not work at all.
replaced it with another chip and the ps2 went on flawless!
Yesterday when i tried to eject the kids DVD movie, the tray did not come out (or it wolud come out a inch) i had to power down and power up again and then the tray would come out.
I then tried to put it in ps2 mode = BLACKSCREEN
I tried again in ps2 mode = WORKING
i then tried DVD mode = WORKING
I tried again in ps2 mode = BLACKSCREEN
And it still is black screen
But the DVD Mode is working like a charm !
Ive got a memmory card inserted will try to remove it as i read in Charlies guides.
But what cabels are i going to suspect are off or bad ?
or has a Fuse blown , Chip went dead (probably not since i can boot up in difrent modes)
Any help would really help !
Thanx in advance
I could be waaaay off base here, but I think that maybe the chip is having a hard time switching between modes. Since DVD mode is the same as PS1 mode, you should be going to standby before bootingf a ps2 game. You mentioned with full power down the chip was switching between modes no problem. For the first couple times anyway. If it is always blackscreen now I would open it up and inspect the wires for solid connections. I had a blackscreen issue a week ago that was corrected by changing my 5V and GND to 22 gague. I had 24 but for some reason they were overheating and popping off.
Just throwing a suggestion out.
Well i open it tonight and it was indeed the GND that had poped off i using a 22 Awg wire i think this is like 22 gauge.
I've never had that problem before with others ps2 but not one alike.
Glad I could help
