In need of SCEX Capacitor for V4
In need of SCEX Capacitor for V4 –
A cousin of mine tried to mod her PS2 and somehow knocked off the SCEX capacitor. I'm looking to replace it but not sure what the technical specs for it are or where to buy it. Anybody can lend a hand then that'd be great. Appreciate it.
The capacitor in question is valued at 4700pF and is in a 0603 package type.
The cap can also be read as 4.7nF or 0.0047uF. They all mean the same value, just depends what marking system your country adopts.
You need to find a retailer near you that stock surfacemount components.
Best of luck!!!
That component is NOT required. Just leave it off. Connect the X/SCEX wire to the point on the motherboard where the cap used to be. DO NOT BRIDGE the points.
Really? Do not bridge the two ends where the capacitor used to be or the capacitor on the right? I'm not exactly clear on what you mean. I attached a picture of two bridges, red and blue. Tell me which one not to bridge and I'll throw in a modchip to see what happens. At the moment it won't read any PSX originals and it makes some weird noises and takes 10 seconds to boot a PS2 game.
I was actually hoping that someone might have a broken mobo sitting around and is willing to take it off and sell it to me for 5 dollars shipped.
I am sort of in the same situation as you. My Thread There is a link to my thread about it. I'm missing that piece and the black one next to it. Someone brought this in. Has a modchip in except for the "s" wire that goes to the black thingy. Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix it, or can it at least boot PS1 games so I can exploit it and use it a HD or put in a chip that can boot from memory card. What does the "s" wire on the Duo2se chips do for the actual modchip? Anyway I can salvage this would be cool. I don't even want to boot it up until I know what will happen cause it's still a good v9 drive in it and PSU so I'd rather keep the parts and scrap the board than fry it if it's beyond repair. I tried to solder in another black thingy (are they resistors??) from another board but they left no metal on one side of the pad at all for it to even stick to.

The one I have here that I mentioned in my post above has been running for about 5 hours straight without the "s" wire of the duo connected or the capacitor or the resistor and it will boot ps2 originals and ps2 backups (CD and DVD)fine but no luck on ps1 games. It's not slow at all either. Not a problem though really. It's better than chucking it. I still have a modded PS1 if I ever get the urge (doubt it) to play a PS1 game.
Seems mine has almost the reverse effect as yours.
Yeah it's strange. The DVD drive makes a bunch of click noises too but when I popped the capacitor off of another V4 and put it on the one that is missing; the system boots games as if they were normal without the clicking problems.
