Reading material help? –
I am pretty new to this but have invested a lot of time, energy and money on trying to learn to install these mod-chips because I would like to do it professionally. But I am running into so many problems. I would really like to get more knowledge on this topic and really know what I'm doing. In particular troubleshooting. When I install a chip and it doesn't work. Then I take it out and the machine itself doesn't work. Last time it turned out to be the BIOS chip (burnt from a short). This time it seems I've damaged the laser. I want to learn to find the problems myself when they occur (e.g., that a chip is burnt and which one), and of course hopefully be able to fix them one way or another.
I would be grateful for ANY suggestions on good reading material or tutorials.
if you get any good information could you pass it on, im in the same boat
some of that soldering is mighty suspect. are the mnopq etc points making proper contact? I'm not a huge fan of soldering the mod directly to the pads without using wires.
hmmm theres not much out there in terms of troubleshooting... Best thing to do is just post about the problem and let people help.
here's a bunch of pics of installs, and some PDFs about disassembling and soldering. most of them are MI-related (this is what i have) but the general idea is there.
absolutele must have's : multimeter, magnifying glass
