Question about PS2 parts
Question about PS2 parts –
I had a customer try and install his own PS2 mod chip. Lets just say he now has a large lump of plastic that looks like a PS2 but runs like nothing.
He brought it over so that I could try and fix it and I cleaned up some solder but the PS2 won't work.
Do you guys know of any websites that sell PS2 motherboards? It might be worth it to just buy a new motherboard since everything else still works.
It is a slimline v16 (gh-061-22). Please let me know if there are any suppliers who have this stuff kicking around or if any of you might have them for sale.
PS2 motherboard alone costs propably more than brand new PS2, if u count the postage too
But u have tried to run the PS2 without the modchip? And checked fuses?
He brought it over with the modchip already removed and it still doesn't run. I have not checked the fused no. Do I need a multimeter for that? I don't have one but since I have done a bunch of installs I should probably invest. What type of multimeter should I get.
I have heard of people using oscilloscopes or something too. What should I get?
One supplied with a beeper, or/and ohm meter.
If your not doing any in depth examining, and understanding what the oscilloscope says, you dont need an oscilloscope. in basic PS2 things you survive with piles of tape, hot glue, and a decent multimeter.
Thanks for the info.
I don't use a lot of tape and I don't use any hot glue. I use double sided tape on a couple of spots on the board to hold the wires down as I am doing the install and then just put some electrical tape over the chip when I am done.
