Ps2 Switches off after few minutes play
I had my v5 modded with a messiah 2 by a pro, when I got it back it worked fine for a few hours, now all games stop after 2 or 3 minutes play, it just goes into stand-by. Turn it back on again and you get the red screen saying there's no disc.
Took it back to the installer, he has a look and a capacitor which had broken off previously (before this install) was loose again. So we get it back and it works for a few hours but is now back to turning off itself. Opened it up to have a look and the dodgy capacitor is intact, installer has looked over all the wires and they're all good. The ribbon cable for the switches is kinda crumpled and might be damaged, could that be the cause?
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
Classic Overheating Fault
First of all check to see if your FAN is spinning.
Also, when the PS2 shut's it self down, does the POWER light flash RED ?
If so then check the following.
1) The Fan is connected
2) The onboard inline fuses are intact. (Use a multimeter)
The fuses are well known to blow when the Messiah has got it's nasty 5v lines on the PS2 board..
