tray won't close on v3 with Duo
tray won't close on v3 with Duo –
I just put in a duo chip in a v3 and when I press the eject button to retract the trat, it won't close. The blue light just blinks once. I removed the cd cover to see what it looks like when I hit the eject button, and the laser light (red) blinks after I hit the reset button. I know the tray can close because it did it for a time when I was switching out and adjusting the laser. Then after I put the cd cover back in and it didn't work. Even f I push it half way in and then press the eject, it just ejects it back out again.
ShadowKnyght, I know you have done v3 with Duo and I'm hoping you can help me with this.
I have checked the Z point and it looks ok and so do all the other points. I have checked the cable ribbon with and odometer and it is fine.
Oh, it boots everything fine (after I have to give the tray a good shove after placing the dvd\cd in).
anybody can help me?
That's kindda odd. I would take it apart make sure all the connections are good. then i'd take the top off to the cd tray and make sure everythings how it should be. other then that I would have no clue to why it would be doing that
i had this problem last nite with a APPLE2, i checked all connections to make sure there wern't any bridges.. no luck..
changed the chip and it ran fine.
sorry if it doesn't help
Have you made sure that you have not cimped or damaged in anyway the ribbon cable from the eject buttons to the PS2?
If this gets crushed or deformed to much this sort of thing could happen.
Also make sure it is firmly connected back in...
Apart from that make sure that you have not shorted the DVD controller pins on the chip when soldering in those two wires.
Lastly check the reset point make sure that is correct - and that you have placed back all the plastic protective bits that sit under the ribbon cables.
Most likely the fault will lie with either one of the ribbon cables or the solder points.
sorry I can't be more help than that.
THe problem lies with the resistor BANK where Z normally goes..
You need to wire a new 10 - 15k resitor in parallel to fix it up..
Ill post a pic soon to show u how to fix
Hope this helps all u mod installers that think uve fooked up a machine
I have never needed to do this on any station regardless of the chip used. I think you are just fixing or hiding a problem caused by an install gone wrong.
sometimes when u linger too long on Z it screws up that resistor bank and then eject dont work properly
ok so I was right then - you are adding a resistor to compensate for damage done during an install.
Never needed this - your iron may be to hot...
But good info anyway for those who have also made this mistake,accidentally.
