Messiah 2 possible faulty chip
I recently installed a messiah 2 pro v1.30 in a v7 and i was having problems with the ps2 not booting anything at all. when trying to boot dvd's it would make a sort of clicking screeching noise and when booting cd-r it would make a sucking noise (ocassionly booting a cd-r to the beginning of a game but no further). I switched the chip to another messiah 2 because everything was double checked several times and assumed faulty chip. with the new chip i experienced the same problems so assumed it was not the chip and backed out of installation completely. I then found the motherboard was broken.
I assumed i busted the board during installation and the chip was ok. I have just tried using that chip again and now experiencing the same problems. Did this chip bust the last motherboard before i swithched to the new chip that also did not work?
Has this chip now busted another motherboard? I have done continuity checks on every connection and the messiah 2 chi is not grounding on the cage and there are no shorts cause all the wires are laid flat.
Can a faulty chip break a motherboard?
what would you suggest given the problem outlined at the top?
Assuming it cant be bios because it goes through to the browser screen eventually, its def not the laser settigns as brand new ps2. It just cant get a focus?
is it a busted SCex?
thanks for any help
