1 USB port –
I have a Ps2 SCPH-30001R USA/NTSC with a Messiah 2 installed.
Before installing the Messiah 2 , on my ps2 I had installed a PS2 Neo Key . ( please see picture attached )
I removed a component that makes work the 1 Usb port .
Then I bought a wheel but I found out that some games need the it is attached on the usb port 1 that for me doesn't work .
So yesterday I opened the ps2 trying to find out how to make my 1 Usb port work again .
Some guy on the forum suggested me that I can connect the 2 points , that were once connected by the piece that I removed , with a normal wire or soldering them together . ( please see picture )
So I tried to do that and my wheel worked for about 20 seconds than stopped working .
So I opened again the ps2 because I was thinking that my connection was weak .
When I closed it again, the usb didn't work again
Now I have 3 more questions please :
1) Do u know what is the piece that I removed and if I can buy a new one on the net ??
2) What do u think if I connect again the 2 points that were connected once when I had the Mod Key on my ps2 ?? ( see picture )
3) Do u think that it could give some kind of problem if this connection is done while the Messiah 2 is also installed on my ps2 ??
4) Why my wheel worked for about 20 seconds and than stopped working
it was most likely a cold solder. i would just put a bunch of solder there to connect/bridge the 2 points. the usb ports have nothing to do with the messiah2 so thay are most likely unrelated. you should also check to see if your wheel is still actually working..
