I have a question to ask and hope you have a solution. I have a US ps2 V1 modded with NEO 4.1. It works fine but the problem is I need to nodge the tray when doing the DVD Swap, 5 out of 10 times it works.
This is what I saw on a site
10.Tray comes out real slow on DVD-R swap and disc does not pickup.
We've found on some PS2s that the live point is not giving out a true 5 volts. This makes the tray eject quite slow and the disc doesn't quite pick up - you press X to continue and the gold disc just stays on the screen.
You need to test with a multimeter and find a live point on the board that is giving a true 5 volts.
In the meantime simply give the tray a nudge to pick up the disc
Question is do you know of any alternat 5V point on a PS2 V1 board? Not much of a techie here. Thanks for any input. By the way will pushing the tray damage the ps2?
By the way can I use pin 36 of the Version 3 diagram on a Version 1 PS2? Thanks
