V3 Magic II with Ps2 v1 020 16m bios
V3 Magic II with Ps2 v1 020 16m bios –
Alright all I finally got my chip reinstalled using the new v1 machine 2 install pics at china magics sight. As all of you know I have that weird bios type D 110 020 16m. This is what I get...
PS2 Originals - Working
PS2 Dvd - Working
PS1 Originals - Working
PS2 Copies - Not working Red screen of death.
PS2 copies, I either get black screen with playstation logo at which point it stops or red screen of death.
Another Question –
Anyone know what the r point is suppose to do. I went back to check some points. And tried to touch up the r point from the new diagrams and I believe this is being attached to a resistor pack. It moved slightly. Same thing happened to the 3.3v resistor pack. Everything seems to be working, although it still only boots games listed above. I noticed LOD's r point is on the bios and also he used the alternate 3.3v point. Since everything is still working Should I try these alternate points since I am having no luck with ps2 backups. I really don't care to try to solder to those two points again since they moved?
Alright went ahead and used the r point LOD has on his diagrams off the bios chip as well used the alt 3.3v point. Still doesn't make a difference. Getting the same result.
Eveything points to a working chip except for the PS2 copies. Another Question What distinguishes the PS1 and PS2 games. I mean seems like with PS2 copies I get the playstation logo with garbarled text and scei underneath. This indicates that it's trying to boot as a ps1 game.
Any help would be appreciated...
You said that you were using the new diagrams off of China Magics Site right? Do you know that connection "M" on the diagram is wrong? There was a discussion about this located here.
At least check it out, if you have not already. It help your debug.
Point M –
Alright going to check it now.. Let you guys know in a few minutes..
moved point m to the 9th pin still the same thing. It's funny ps2 copies seem like there going to boot and then this comes up
Hey LOD or anyone.. My reference to the booting of PS2 copies. That it sounds like the cd is going to boot and then goes to a black screen showing playstation and scea underneath. I went to the browser to see what it was trying to recognize the cd as. It came up with a black bottom cd and referenced playstion. This seems to me to indicate seeing it as a ps1 game. Anyone have a clue why this would be. What distinguishes detecting a ps1 or ps2 game..?
I thought M should be on 8th pin NOT the 9th?! and does W go on the cd/dvd controller or will it work on the point that china magic shows in v1 (2) pic?
How goes your install? I thought you may bring us some good news after the weekend.
Anyway you are correct, M is on the 8th pin from the closest edge. The only reason it was brought up was because China Magic's diagrams are wrong and we just wanted people to know that they were wrong and that LOD's diagram is correct. China Magic has been informed, now who knows when they will get around to changing it though.
Trust Me!! I thought after the weekend we would have good news too! I'm just starting to realize i am begining to hate MAGIC, no matter what we try NOTHING will Make this thing go!!!! I wish I knew the answear! At any rate, the last thing I am curious about is the different W points.
