Messiah2 Pro v1.3 ..dead?!
Messiah2 Pro v1.3 ..dead?! –
This happened several months ago [when this was the latest revision of the M2P], but i only thought of asking about it now. A Messiah 2 Pro v1.3 was purchased some time ago from foundmy.com. I installed the chip for a customer late one night, tested it on a tv, and it successfully booted a ps2 DVD-R backup. However, there were color problems with it... very strange. i partially re-assembled the unit, and went to bed. The next day, i woke up and looked at the wires. I redid a couple of ones that looked like they could be improved. I plugged the console in again only to find that the colors were just as bad. However, when i tried to boot the backup, it failed [red screen]. I redid the insallation several times, only to come to the same screen. Originals booted fine [PS1 and PS2], and i learned that the color problem was a problem with the tv, not the ps2. It was as if the mod just died... as if no mod was installed at all. Any ideas on this? thanks =]
I've had 2 messiah 2 chips DIE on me. One was an old 1.07, was working fine for about 2-3 months, then just stopped working. It was as if it wasn't there. Install was perfect. Swapped mod over for a new one and back up and running - and six months later still going strong. I never touched anything on the board, just the points on the chip.
I also had this happen a few weeks ago, had been modded for almost 2 months, same symptom, replaced chip, all up and running.
I've also had 2 chips that were dead when I installed, all at MY expense as Messiah won't replace faulty chips.
One of the reasons why I will never be buying another Messiah 2 chip, DMS3 all the way from now on and I've never once had a problem with them.
wow.... thats pretty ridiculous. stupid m2p
