magic V 50k newbie, need help –
hi im brand new to the forum, im also installing a chip for the first time. i have some dumb questions that im really stuck on
1. it says to solder wires to the other side of the board, but there is a metal plate, how do i get to those points?
2. where do i put the 3.3v wire?
What version of ps2 do you have ? (model no.)
i have a V9, the diagram sent with it was terrible. i found another online that showed the b-I points soldered to chip legs, but im not a very experienced solderer.
Well you didn't pick the easiest model to do your first install on. The v9 can be tricky. Here is a diagram for v9 magic 50k. Just confirm this is the chip you have? Have you bought the chip yet ?
yes i have the chip, im actually half way through the install, i just do not wanna go any further without being completely sure, and i really dont want to try and solder to the chip legs, too close together for me. so do i have to remove the board completely to get to the bottom side?
Yeah mate you do. Take the mother board out so that it's all on it's own. The vias on the bottom side of the board are the tricky ones.
Also with the v9 you will have to do the "romeo mod". Do you know about this.
never heard of it, also, would you happen to have a link or pic of a magic 50k install?
what exactly is the romeo mod?
