Mars III MA-502 No video/Audio
Mars III MA-502 No video/Audio –
I successfully installed a Magic 3.1+ in a V4 PS2 and had no problems with it. Then tried to install a Mars III MA-502 in my friends V7 PS2 and I get no video, When i take the Mars III out, Every thing is back to normal...
I checked all the wires and made sure made sure they were good, used a multi-meter to check all the connections. I also checked to make sure there were no solder bridges any where. Every thing seemed ok. Is the mod-chip bad or could it be something else?
Appreciate any help!!
Sorry if im being a noob but i searched and didnt really see any thing and just wanted some opinions on if it is the mod chip or something else. I don't like having this as my first post but didnt know what else to do
It could be the modchip then. Why don't you try another modchip. Try to install the chip at least two times to confirm it is the chip and not your soldering.
I dont have another mod chip to try, When i get some more time ill try this mod chip again.... But me and my brother both went over every thing with a multi-meter so I'm pretty confident the soldering was fine... I will just have to try that chip again I guess. The magic went pretty smooth, These PS2's arent anything like an Xbox
haha yeah, xbox is child's play.
Good choice on the mars III; that's a pretty solid chip. It's unfortunate that it didn't work for you.
Well, After messing with the PS2 a few more times I found out that it is the ribbon cable on the Reset and Eject buttons(was orginally disassembled by the owner, not me) When pressure was applied to the ribbon, The PS2 would come on with no video or Audio.... Sure wish i would have realised this before i took the mod chip out....
I apologize for the waste of a thread here.... not how i like to make an appearance on a message board ... Feel kind of lame now... Thnaks for the help though
omg, thx, that help me out, too! ^^
It takes so long because of several things:
Anti-Clone (They wanna test it on every ps2 model)
HDD Explorer is also in work
