Probs getting it all back together (chip too thick)
Probs getting it all back together (chip too thick) –
Followed Charlie_PS2's guide on fitting the Magic 2 to my V5 PS2.
Got all the wires attached (some of them were real bitches), positioned the Magic2 exactly as shown, but when I try to fit the metal cage, it does not go back. It appears there is not enough space, or the modchip is too thick.
What should I do? There is no way that I am de-solder /re-solder that lot again, just to move the chip to the side.
Damn, I wish I followed the magicmodchips drawings, and mounted it at the side :-(
Anyone resorted to cutting a hole in the metal cage to allow the top of the modchip to poke through? (there is space, as it's below the PSU).
Advice would be greatly appreciated....
Time for bed...... I'll attack it in the morning!!!
yes many have cut a hole. Others have taken the backing strip off the magic 2 and used the glue on the base to stick to the motherboard.
If you cut a hole, remember to do that off the PS2 and file/sand the edges so no metal powder/shards should drop into the motherboard.
Thanks, made the hole, got it all back together, and everything appears to be working great!! I can AT LAST play my old PS1 copy of Kula World!!
