swap mainboards??? –
I jus got the usb 1 wire solder neo key and got my friend to do it.. (DON'T TRUST FAT PEOPLE!) jk.. and he destroyed the mainboard.. i was thinking if i bought a busted ps2 online (never opened, but doesn't play games) if i could swap the mainbord with my solder covered warzone (my v.4 mainboard) i am wondering if it MATTERS what v. of ps2 i buy.. i think all the hardware is prety much the same.. the case, the fan, the power switch, cd rom drive, etc. would it matter if i bought a broken v. 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, or 7? or can i ONLY BUY V. 4? please help me
yeah right –
heh, it's BEYOND REPAIR..my idiot friend first made one good solder point, then on his next point, he somehow ripped out a node (little black brick thing) then melted a nother node, then got a glob of solder in the middle of the board.. their is nothing i can do.. the only thing i can do (afford to do) is buy a busted ps2 and swap the mainboards.. i shoulda been a little more clear.. someone has a 3001 R 8 skrews. would that work with my system? i don't hav a model R.
oh yeah –
i know that a v. 4 mainboard would work w/ mine, so if u hav one that's busted, SELL IT TO ME!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org about selling me your v.4!
and another question...
and another question... –
even if all the hardware is diff.. if a ps2 doens't read any dvd's/cd's, that should be the cd-rom's fault right? so i should be able to buy any ps2 like that and swap JUST the cdrom drive with the one that was in my v. 4.. RIGHT?? if i can, this would be GREAT NEWS..
V4 has different hardware than v5/6/7. There are different connectors for the DVD drive, so you will not be able to swap a v5/6/7 mainboard into your v4.
so i WILL be able to swap with 1,2,3 and 4 right?
Holy crap! –
I didn't even know it was POSSIBLE to screw up a 1-wire USB mod install! I let my dog install mine.
He screwed up 1 wire??? I mean a cold solder joint is understandable but desoldering crap? He wasnt using a low watt soldering iron, huh?
Damn I'd make him replace it
Wow messing up a 1 wire mod, ouch! Did your friend have any soldering skills? Easy to tell is if he was using a 100W iron, then the answer is NO! hehe. This is why I do all my work, I don't trust anyone with my Black Beast (PS2) .
