V3 Gap + Duo2SE prob –
I have measured everything that there is no shorts on bios or cd/dvd controller pins... everything is on right places, but ps2 acts like there is no chip present... anyone got any ideas?
umm u sure the bios points are correcT ?
yes, triple checked... is that chip how sensitive for crossing otherwires or wire lenght on V3? where should i put the chip itself... to the big flat green area or somewhere else... cd/dvd controller wires are ok?
Its a V3.... you might suspect the laser its self. Very often V4 and earlier PS2's have lasers good enough to read originals but not powerful enough to read recordable media. If the laser is taking too long to read the data on the disc regardless of if the install is correct the Duo line of chips will time out its patching to the bios and you will get the RSOD.
ok little update on this, resoldered everything, and now ps2 originals work, ps1 original + backup, but ps2 backups cdr or dvdr wont work... it starts to spin like it would boot but when it should give me playstation 2 text it gives me no data screen...
If all of your soldering is spot on then it sounds a little bit like the laser...
