Read this guide then help(if willing) –
It's in pdf format.
after reading this here are my questions.
1: Do i need flux spray? like they say in the guide, if so what is the artikle's name and number? i'm assuming that is international since i'm in friggin holland(so nederlanders wel ff replyen)
2: Do i need solderpaste? article number?
What i do have is this:
Kynarwire 30 something(ordered with my chip)
3: What else do i need more?
Btw i learned soldering in my xbox using a 1.0mm tip and wire that is like 20 times thicker than my kynar wire(really i cryed for my ps2 when i first saw the wire
4: What the hell is a ViA, can someone please show me with picts and a MODIFIED explenation(modified for a dumb ****)
5: is it just hot glue you guys r using?
6: AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING(sorry for the caps) I have a pal ps2V6, and i cant make out where to put the color fix, SO WHERE TO PUT THE COLOR FIX(strange what point on the chip goes to the color fix?) or is it a straight wire from one point on the mobo to another
i'm a noob at ps2 this is gonna be my first install, but i chipped 40+xboxes so i can solder a tiny bit.
and does anyone have a good guide to micro soldering, since my soldertin is 0.7mm, and i'm used to pre tinning the wire/point on the pcb before i solder them together, and since the ps2 is so small, i have no clue how to make my wire stick to the bios chip(think i can handle the solderpads) and to be honest i just don't want to **** my girlfiends ps2 up,
better safe then sorry so sorry bout all these questions, but if you don't like it than don't reply
AND I KNOW SOME OF YOU HAVE MAGIC FINGERS by just looking at the pinned"only installation pictures" Thread.
4. it's a metal part that join the upper and lower layer of the pcb
(looks like a tiny hole in the mb)
6. it's not on the chip
connect the color fix point to the ground for pal
yeah right ... better **** your gf than her ps2
to be honest i just don't want to **** my girlfiends ps2 up
There is no sin except stupidity
1. Desoldering wick, in case you need to clean up bad solder point.
3: What else do i need more?
2. I would suggest use a flux pen instead of a flux spray, it doesn't really matter that much, but it's easier to use.
I'm having a pal console, but i dont get the name of the guide since it is "ntsc to pal conv" but i'm having a pal ps2, so i'm assuming that linking the 2 pins toghether from the above guide in Shadownights post, will do the same as connecting a wire from the color fix on the mainboard to GND(since i want to put my ps2 in pal mode.)
Can someone please explain why the ps2 needs this color fix, or is it just needed on some mods who take these settings from the mobo?
BTW TNXXX for the guide, this has exactly what i need to know.
DO I NEED TO DO THE COLOR FIX??????? or if i have a rgb cable i will be alright(since i have a 50/60hertz tv) PAL V6 console.
SHADOWNIGHT The picts you posted of the mainboard are allmost the same, but my chip for the color fix is twisted on the mainboard(45degrees) so witch pins to connect, also the nr is different, but it's the only chip thaT looks like the one on the pict.
BTW i'm talking bout the chip that is closest to the video out.
yeah sorry, see attached for V5/6 same chip as the V4 but rotated 90 degrees.
All chips require this mod.
Explanation of what this conversion does (also see charlie's Messiah install guides):
PAL Stations Link point to ground i.e. short points as shown:
1) Pal station becomes able to play NTSC games on a PAL TV in full colour.
2) TV needs to be able to handle multi-frequencies as the resultant PAL signal is not 100%. i.e. pseudo PAL only. Old TV's may need their V-hold adjusted to prevent a rolling screen.
3) This does not convert a PAL station into a NTSC station!!! to do that you will need a scart cable or similar.
4) Station will still play PAL games correctly!
NTSC stations - link the colour fix point to 3.3volts:
1) NTSC station will then be able to play PAL games in colour
2) TV needs to be able to handle multi-frequencies as the resultant NTSC signal is not 100%. i.e. pseudo NTSC only. Old TV's may need their V-hold adjusted to prevent a rolling screen.
3) This does not convert a NTSC station into a PAL station!!! to do that you will need a scart cable or similar.
4) Station will still play NTSC games correctly!
