messiah 2 wire type –
My friend has been using the supplied 32 awg wire supplied by terry @ foundmy.com for all points. The Messiah 2 works great on the V.3 he did and the V.7, however on my V.4 it doesnt work.
The thing will not boot any backups whatsoever, however it does change over to the psx screen when we put it into psx mode, but the screen looks choppy and broken at the bottom. He also performed the pcb fix.
I was wondering if it is possible for the 32awg wire to work fine on a v.3 and v.7 pwr and grnd but not on a v.4.
What do you guys think?
See my install guide for the correct wire gauges.
32 awg is necessary for soldering reasons on the CD/DVD Controller and BIOS legs on v3/v4 and BIOS legs on v7.
GRND should always be at least 24 awg for Messiah 2. ANd Power too.
just wondering where you guides are charlie?
i remember seeing one time a really nice diagram for soldering it gave a bunch of good tips like useing razors and showed a lot of pics of it, anyone know where i can find that?
those are them. At www.messiah2.com goto the install link. Choose your version. The install guides have lots of pictures and explanations as well as troubleshooting hints and soldering tips. According to the site most of them were put up by charlie_ps2.
