reset/eject button cable pinout?
reset/eject button cable pinout? –
I bought a used v4 ps2 with a half way installation of a messiah2 chip before the previous owner gave it up.Anyway,I've installed the chip,but when reassembling the console the reset/eject ribbon cable (7 pins) is of course gone, guess the previous owner damaged it while taking the ps2 apart.
Just to do a quick fix I thought I'd solder wires from the mobo connector to the reset/eject button,but my problem is finding a diagram/pinout for this.I've been searching for a good while,but can't seem to come up with anything useful.Found some diagrams,but they only seem to be guesses and explanations on how you "could" do it,but no "official" decent pinout.
Would greatly appreciate if anyone could help me.
Ok,I realize this topic may not be a real "crowd pleaser", but any help would be appreciated.Since I don't have the original ribbon I cannot figure out in which end to start connecting the wires.I've now changed the two pictures into one (edit).If you take a look at the picture,would that connection be right or should one of the ends be crossed to start connecting it to the other side instead?

Reason: Changing picture
Ok,don't wanna be the lame ass bumping my own thread all the time, but I find it quite amazing that no one can answer me this since damaging the reset/eject button ribbon seems like a very common problem when taking the ps2 apart.Surely someone must have done this quick fix soldering wires instead before?
I would probably have sorted this problem out myself if I only had the ribbon cable, but as said it's missing and I have nothing to compare with.Only a simple picture showing the mobo connected to the eject/reset pcb with the ribbon cable would help me out, that way I could be able to se if the wire is straight the whole way or if it's twisted in any way so the pinout might be 180 degrees wrong (the cable being crossed).
Maybe it's me being stupid or not using the search function right, but I'm not able to come up with anything helpful.
