Need Answer To question –
Can anyone tell me if point G and H on the dvd controller have continuity between them cause on my non functionning ps2 they have continuity, the chip that i installed is a messiah 2
i'm wondering if these two points are the cause of BSOD
Yes, most likely that is the cause.
Does anyone know if the bridging of these two points causes and components such as the DVD controller to become damaged? The two points read 15-17 ohms of resistance.
PS2 symptoms are:
- no video/sound
- no tray eject
- reset light blinks once
- long time to put the system into standby
Anyone with any ideas?
This problem is annoying me to no end, i would like to know if it is repairable.
did you try backing out of the install? just removing all the solder and wires.
yes all the wires are removed, all points are cleaned as well, i checked all the other points on the mobo and all seem fine accept for points G and H.
I tried to find were they are connected but couldn't find anything, i didn't try with a magnifying glass.
i can only assume that it is a very tiny pice of solder bridging these two points that is causeing this problem because my meter reads 15-17 ohms
what do you guys think
gently scrape a razor between the legs try again - if no luck the chip is probably dead!
15+ ohms is not a short! If you had a short between G and H you should get a black screen...
A bridge between the BIOS legs is more likely for RSOD!
(Of course a G or H leg being cut could be a Good reason too)
I do have a black screen
anyways, is there any way of telling if the DVD controller is fried?
i have a V7 so i'm not soldering to chip legs, i'm soldering to the pads that are there.
Also is it possible that solder may have gone under the chip since the pins on the V7 dvd controller are recessed under the chip?
yes there is always a possibility. but as there is only one solder joint on the base you would have had to have been really messy to get some under that chip.
The soldering job was very neet, i spend a long time on it, and many hours practicing.
