Ripper IV with V7 PS2 (USA)
Ripper IV with V7 PS2 (USA) –
Hey guys, i'm posting this because i know some people will encounter the same frustrating problem i've been trying to fix for the passed couple of hours.
First of all, the Ripper IV chip is a good chip in my opinion, with minimum features included. Now lets talk about the diagram for a V7 PS2 (USA).
I'm a professional computer technician / electronics technician and i've been soldering for many years now. So at first, i knew my soldering job was done properly. The PS2 would boot games till the "PlayStation 2" screen right before the game kicks in, then it would return to the Browser and eventually give the "Please insert a PS2 or PS1 compatible game". This got more and more frustrating.
Finally, i ended up solving the problem. Very simple but tricky to figure out.
To fix the problem, simply use the W & SCEX points from the Matrix Infinity modchip. I've soldered those points, booted a game and everything worked perfectly.
To anyone who will ever read this thread, maybe you can post comments on this situation and explain to others why the W & SCEX points are wrong on the Ripper IV V7 diagram. I would be curious to know myself.
Give us a picture of the diagram you use.
I ordered some of them and hated them. First the screwy playstation 2 logo turns customers off. They think something is wrong with their chip or their console. Then trying to boot PS1 games or DVD movies, forget it. Press the reset till the console is off, turn on with eject, turn off to standby with reset, hold reset until the light goes blue, then hit reset again. This does not impress my customers either. I've decided to get away from these cheap clones, take a hit in profits and install some decent chips with features like autoboot. Everyone in my area installs magic chips or some other crappy chip and customers are coming to me more and more asking for chips by name so I've ordered myself some Matrix MX4's. We'll see how they work. I still love those Duo2se's though. I did over 100 of those and they're all still out there working. Too bad they didn't have a v12 solution.
Thank you so much for posting this info, it saved my butt!! I’m so glad I decided to search this forum!! New W point works like a charm, no need to change S point.
Yeah I’m not very impressed over these chips about the boot logo and there’s absolutely no excuse for hosting non-functional V7 diagrams!
I can’t find a source on Duo2SE’s anymore and my peeps wont pay for expensive mods so what other choice do I have.
Anyway, Thanks again, you have no idea how much this saved me tonight!!!! That’s what it’s all about right there, people helping people!!!!
I would like to thank janvitos for starting this thread. I cant tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your feedback. After buying a batch of 10 of these cheap chips I was pulling my hair out of my head after reinstalling this chip 3 times always getting the same symptoms.... Would bootup show the ps2 logo then goto browser and say "no data" then bsod. I was always positive that all my solders were ok ...rechecked everything like 15 times .... never would of thought they had the wrong W point. At any rate .... I think I'll just end up going back to MX4's after this batch. THX A TONNE M8!!!!!
could youse guyz pleeze post da pics dat ya speaking about mista?
So on the ripperv7.jpg that I have do not, repeat, do not use the W point instead use the W point from a matrix infinity install.
just would like to be 100 percent sure seeing as how I how ripper 4 on the way a v7 waiting patiently. thanx
ripper uses old ice code go for new apple 75k as they use new ice code with orange H20 code.. Good work on letting new people know about bunk diagrams.. A copy of a copy is never as good as the original..
It's because they changed their name in duo2GT. Look it up and you'll find shops again
