V1 PS1 Motherboard
I am hoping this is the correct place for this. just one quick question. I have unassembled a v1 ps2 preparing to install a mod chip, but the motherboard is 2 pieces sandwiched together and I am unable to get them apart.
Looks (from what I can see) like there is a plastic clip connected to 4 pins that is holding it together, is there an easy way to disconnect this clip?
The sticking point is under the 4 vertical solder points beneath the 5th fin from the left on the heatsink in the picture. It looks like there are 4 pins which connect the two pieces of the motherboard, There is a plastic something inbetween the 2. I can't tell if this is a connector, or just a shield for the metal pins. Do I have to desolder the pins on one side to remove it?
well i don't no how ur gonna get that off (there isn't any v0-2 here) but u only need the way u hav it in pic 2 to install a mod.
Well the few that i have done have only required 1 connection on the bottom side of that metal panel, i was able once i removed all the screws to just twist that plate(carfully!!!!) out of the way to get my connection... One console i was able to pull it apart, those four pins are power supply connections, but it does come apart but i can't remember the version? Sorry
I got it apart, 20 yards of solder braid almost took care of the 2 gallons of solder on the ps connection, now I look at my matrix infinity install sheet and the motherboard doesn't look the same as the picture :(
Serial number says it's a v1, so I am off to find a picture that looks more like mine, thanks for the help!
lol look at the top part u don't need to desolder. use alternate scex on duomodchip diagrams save your self some time
