screwed up while modding a ps2
screwed up while modding a ps2 –
i have a version 4 ps2, i got a dms+ chip and when i was soldering the parts d,f,g or whatever to the bios i spilled some excess solder in the cracks,
i got it all out by wicking it, but when i tried out the ps2 to see if it still worked the power went on but the screen was all black. im just wondering if there is a way to "save" my ps2 or should i just trash it or whatever.
i guess i shouldn't have done this because those points were way smaller, almost microscopic to those in my tech ed class.
If your not confident to remove the shorts, i would roccomend you send your PS2 to someone like myself, as it is very easy to damage the legs on the chip, or even rip the pads off!
But if you are confident enough, try using some flux and solder braid, you may even need to apply some more solder to remove the bridges.
You probably have some left or around that area but you just can't see it. Why don't you try looking with a magnifying glass and see if you can see anything. Go over the board carefully, lil by lil, you might find something. I would look at the bios chip and the cd/dvd controller chip for any solder that may short the legs. These are the two chips you had to solder to. You might be able to fix it. If you do, send it to someone. I think DMS3 is too hard for beginners to start with. Too much wires and too many little points. It also has ground bounce issues so yeah. Send it in.
Pass braid wire all over the place, even if you not see anything.
Otherwise do as ps2mods101272 says and look for someone with more experience.
