I will preface that I read the faq but I have a specific question that doesn't seem to be answered, or not directly at least.
I have the chip installed and I checked every connection I could from either a BIOS leg or a via along the track that I soldered to to ensure that connections appeared good... there were a few I didn't check that way but I did check from the connection point.
Anyway, I always get the red screen with DVD-R and CD-R backups.
THE QUESTION: I have one PS2 with a Messiah and to put the chip in standby I hold the reset, the blue light comes on and then goes off again. In this new install that I am having problems with, the blue light comes on and never goes off. Does this mean that the chip is never enabling to begin with? Could it be the power or reset lines? I know for sure the BIOS connections are good and the B, C points are good too since I checked all of those from the pins themselves and also checked their neighbors for shorts.
Thanks! If this is answered indirectly in the faq, I apologize... the only thing I could gather from it was to check the points that I have already checked and I don't have a GS2 to try if I can boot a backup that way.
Thanks in advance!
