Date Code 2C
One thing noticably different with the board of this console is that the bios chip has a gap Like the one version of the v4.
I tried to put in a magic 2. Followed diagrams...checked points...not working...
Screen stays black when turned on. Eject and reset buttons don't respond that well.
I've installed magic 2s, magic 3s, and the original messiah. I don't think there's any problems with the soldering.
Has anyone run across this model ps2?
