Magic II, recurring symptoms
Magic II, recurring symptoms –
Can someone help me with this problem?
I've installed my (brown gold) magic II chip on 2 different ps2's (same model 30001R V5/6). I used the same ground and 5V pts as the messiah chip. The S (SCEx) point was soldered as Dantok described with a blob connecting the resistor, the capacitor, and the wire together, which should not matter since the end of the resistor and the capacitor are continuous. Everywhere else the points were soldered as described in Charlies pdf(using no VIA pts).
My problem is that when each system was tested, they don't boot any backups at all, ps2 backups go to a black screen or load with a ps1 logo then freeze. Ps1 copied games are not recognized and go to the red screen. We even tried installing only the points required for a ps1 game copy to boot and the same red screen shows. We rechecked the solder points over and over and can not determine the problem, no bridges on pins or burns, wires are all short as can be. All originals work though and no DVD skipping has occurred. Modes operate as they are suppose to, just can not load the copied games. All media used is high quality, Fuji, Verbatim, Memorex. PS1 games booted originally on stealth Modded PS1
The only thing that i'm assuming it could be is I received one of the rumored nonPS1 booting chip OR the placement of the Magic chip causes problems in operating correctly. We placed the chip inside where the blue magic 2 chip was placed in Charlie's PDF. Other sites have recommended mounting to the metal cage or drilling a whole to release the pressure.
Can anyone confirm this as the cause of my problem? And if not, can anyone suggest something else that can be causing the PS2 not to boot backups properly?
Sorry the message is so long, I just want to get my PS2 to finally work. It's taken me almost 3 weeks now and 2 PS2 to confirm I get the same error. Please Help.
I've replied on another forum to this one and you've replied to me with a set of trial measures.
