I have a JAP V4 No-gap PS2. Is the installation the same for both the JAP and the US version of the PS2??
I can't seem to get my magic 3.1 working in my ps2. I have checked my installation over and over again. I even checked to see if my chip was getting any power with a multimeter (as it doesn't seem to be active) and it does have power. My originals work, original DVD movies work...and so do DVD-R movies.
However, nothing backed up would work at the moment. I always get the red screen. I really can't see what the hell is wrong. Somebody PLEASE show me the light!!
I'm doing a continuity test between all my points right now..and the following points are linked (multimeter beeps)
A <-> Z = ~9 ohms
A <-> GND = ~8 ohms
Z <-> GND = ~1 ohms
Is that suppose to happen?? I don't see how in the world they could have linked by way of crappy soldering. A -> Z and A -> GND are so far apart.
