any conclusive evidence that the 5k6 works on v9 boards?
solution maybe? –
I was having this problem too magic v 50k on GH-023 board perfect soldering job checked everything with a multimeter but wouldn`t boot up just black screen. It seemed like it wanted to boot just wouldn`t get the ps2 logo.So after nights of fustration i found the answer i found a different wiring diagram and used it everything worked fine after that it.Hope this helps.I only changed the 3.3, reset, y, and added another ground.
I've had two successful v9 machines modded with a MagicV 50k chip, but the other night I tried installing another one and I couldn't get the damn thing to pick up any backups at all. I tried everything I could think of, including swapping the chip with another one. I always use the thicker power & gnd wires (even doubled up the gnd as ShadowKnyght has in some of his pics - actually I've done this on the other two v9 installs I've done too).
I also doubled up the Y & RST connections. I quadruple checked all of my connections with a multimeter. I eventually had to give up. I just couldn't get the damn chip to work.
I did however notice that the board was a GH-023, but I can honestly say I didn't notice what the other two boards were in the other two v9s that I modified. So I dunno if it has anything to do with the specific board, as I don't have any other modchips for the v9 machines.
Just thought I would throw out my 2¢...
*EDIT* - Sorry,... should have mentioned that they're NTSC machines.

From what ive heard (dont use magic crap my self) magic V 50k is very sensitiv to long wires. If you keep wires short however it should work ok!
yeah,... I always keep the wires as short as I can. The strange thing is that I installed this chip exactly the same way as I installed the other two chips.
I had the same exact problem. I changed wires just as Mod4All suggested above and boom, it boots up perfectly. Thanks.
Ditto, I convinced myself I had 3 faulty Magic V5s. It was the R wire, route it away from all the others...bingo.
hmm,... I had even tried moving the R wire (because I had read about it above). Maybe if I get really bored I'll call the guy up and give it another whirl. We'll see though...
*EDIT* - Hey Mod4All,... you didn't by chance use the RESET & Y connections on that diagram did you? Cause they're both different from the china-magic diagrams.
(I had actually tried both of these points too - just for the hell of it - but it made no difference)
Maybe it was my R wire. I never tried using a thicker gauge wire for it. I just used 30awg. hmm...
