PS2 V7 problem –
I got a mind boggling problem...
Modded a v7 with a magic 3.1 and got the blank screen problem, checked the bios didn't look like any bridge but still didn't work. So I backed out of the mod, took the chip out, desoldered the bios with flux + desoldering braid.
Now, when I put the ps2 back together, on the first bootup, I get the browser and it reads the disc. Turn it off, boot it up again and I get a blank screen. If I disassemble everything, put it back together, it does the same.
Another funny thing is on the second bootup and subsequent tries, the blue LED for the eject lights up when u first hit reset, if you hit it again, it turns off, hit it again, turns on and so on and so on.
The ps2 can be turned on with the eject button so the BA chip is good? I don't have a multimeter to check the fuses, but I replaced fuses PS14 and PS12 from a working mobo since those seem to be two likely problems from reading other threads.
Partially dead BA chip?
Anybody got a clue to what's going on???
i forgot to add that the cd tray doesn't eject after the first bootup
