Messiah 2 Installs not going to good
Messiah 2 Installs not going to good –
Both PS2s are brand new out of the Box v7 NTSC 050 2c. I put the Messiah 2 in each of them , hastly put them toghether at minimum amounts and they both booted all games fine. I put them back togetehr half way and one gets no video and no drive activity, even took it back apart still nothing, took off the bios points too. The other stopped booting backups. Ive checked all points with my multimeter and all are fine and dandy, no shorts no broken anything. Ive tried other power sources aswell. I know the installs are good on both and same with the chips just from the fact that at one point they both worked. I just am not sure whats wronge here, I have to get these done asap as my list of PS2s to mod is growing at a much to fast rate. Heres a picture of the second install, the one that is no longer booting backups, www.playerone.cc/modchips/Messiah2v7.jpg Thanx for your help.
0h 0! that doesnt sound good, wonder what the prob is? go ahead and put a messiah2 in mine...ive been waitin long enough......its ok if u mess it up....
hDl told me to watch that diode on the Messiah 2 it sticks higher than other componants and you could be shorting the thing out with the metal frame installed. Plus with the wires running OVER the chip on the PS2 board this could also cause a problem when the metal frame is installed and screwed down the clearance is very little on that chip in respect to the metal frame. Also check the fuses you may have blown one shorting out The M2 with the metal frame
thats what ive been telling people its shorting power to ground which is never good i mentioned this in the other thread nec.
Insulate the DIODE on the Messiah 2 Board!
i agree i would think about changing the placement of the chip also to the top end of the board where its nice and flat and not covering any components like it is now very nice install by the way you can tell you take pride in your work.
IM SH!tting my pants hes doing mine now and he hasntread this info yet F*CK!!!!!!! im so Screwed some1 call him!
so you think Ive killed the chips at very least
you just killed the diode that's all not the messiah 2 chip itself and most probabley blew a few onboard fuses in the process so get that tester out.
