Messiah 2 Help –
I install this Messiah 2 into a brand new v7 NTSC PS2. Works great, get everything to boot fine. I start putting it all back together, then give it another whirl, no video and no disk activity at all. I take it apart the 3v came off, i put it back on still ntohing, ive undone the power to the chip and everything still no go. The install is good for a fact as I mean it worked flawlessly and i checked each point, any ideas?
Check for cold-solder points around the BIOS.
I have and they are all fine, plus it should not matter at all if i have the chips power cables removed, should act if there is no chip at all. This problem is strang because between it working totaly fine and booting everything and the time theres no video and no disc activity at all there was no soldering done what so ever, all points are strong, ive checked all the fuses, my install is obviously good, wtf?
Have you tried removing the chip to see if it still works? If so, then it's one of the connections from chip to board. If it still doesn't work then it is a bridged connection on the board.
Also check the CLK point and try the new point to see if that helps.
Ive disconnected to the power to the chip. What you dont get is it worked, this install worked fine, i didnt touch it after it worked, i put the case on and it stops, its not the install man, ive checked it with my eyes, my meter and my common sense. Why god!
Might be that you ran it for too long without the heat conducting metal cage and it's simply gone.
the bottom metal cage with the heatsink was on it for the whole time, just not the top cage, or whatever side ud call it. And it ran for a few mins fan was on, and i mean i doubt that.
Sure - as you describe that would do no harm. I think the adsvice you received about backing right out, cleaning up, getting it to basic state and then doing it again is sound.
Oh nuts, wish I didnt have about 10 Million PS2s to mod today.
Good luck Necro! oh, and hi Charlie
