Started chipping my first PS2 (V6 messiah2 Pal)
Started chipping my first PS2 (V6 messiah2 Pal) –
Damn the SCeX point looks even more difficult then all of the other points, has anyone an alternative point or a easy way of connecting the wire(since the condensator is surounded by multiple condensators and i'm finding it hard to connect the point. since i don't want to ruin the condensator(or whatever it is called) and i can only solder at a 90 degree angle.
MMmmmmmmmm pretinned the backside points/reset/clk/and A
gonna solder the 8 backside wires and the the topside of the mobo
GOD HELP ME

at the opposit side of the capacitor (thebrown thing where the scex cable comes on) u have a resistor.
Put some solder inbetween the capacitor and resistor(they r already connected with eachother) and then stick in the wire from scex.
hope this helps.
Damn i just got to this point and i thought hey lets look on the inet if anyone reacted.
YOU BET YA IRONSIGHT THAT YOU HELPED< otherwise i would have been busy for an hour(since i didnt want to touch the other capacitator).
BTW i have 2 type of bigger wires than whom i chip my ps2 with, is it possible to have to thick of a wire?
So that the wire is TO THICK for my messiah to work
Not as long as u can connect to all the solderpoints without either breaking them off or shorting stuff
OK i just finished with soldering every wire to the MOBO, Damn a hell of a lot of work the first time(dont have no printer, so walking up and down my pc to look at pictures/guides, thank god i have my gf for holding stuff.
those 4 point on the Chip (P,O,N,M) are easy as hell, they where like friggin 5 times as easy as the pads(think this has to do with my .1mm tip not wanting to have a blob of solder on the edge of the tip. TALKING BOUT THE PADS NEXT TO THE CHIP).
all in all it wasn't as hard as i thought it was, when i keep in mind that i started soldering on my xbox half a year ago and only chipped like 15 consoles with a 1.0mm tip using very big wire and the LPC chips like applex-v3/V5/pro.
This was the first time i ever even touched a iron tip smaller than 1.0MM and i didn't even practised since i dont have a pcb with solder points that small
Ok off to solder the chip in.
LOL me and my big mouth. i dunno what is wrom but somethings very wrong.
I get a blackscreen on boot(flickers) and eject and power light burn but i cant eject the dvd.
i think the buttons are functioning normnallie, eject is blinking and i can boot from eject and power
WTF did i do?

Meh, it happens. If you have a multimeter check your backside points first then the remainder for bridges. Make sure you haven't damaged the ribbon cable for the 'reset', 'eject' buttons.
Ok i slept a few hours an on i go with my ps2, gonna take it apart, think i hit something when building it together.
ok, havn't got time until now for this project, so on we go i just deinstalled the chip and everything works fine again. I mesured all the points and they where fine, so i'll just resolder all of them.
Does anyone know what could have coused this? to long of a wire to thick of a wire for CLK. I know you cant just say "hey this or that is the problem, but maybe the error(blackscreen on boot no eject) is related to a specific area of the mobo(some certain points for example)
