v9 keeps Ejectin with MAtrix Infinity
v9 keeps Ejectin with MAtrix Infinity –
Just installed a Matrix Infinity Blue Dot into a v9 system, with thick wires for GND and power only. AS well I did not connect the SX wire as of yet, but will later. Anyways, started it up, it started a game up and saw the infinity PS2 logo. So i shut the system off, turned it back on, took the disc out and closed the drive. Went to find a backup dvd, and the drive ejected by itself. And then I clicked the eject button and it started going back in, and then came back out, and then back in and so on. So I held the reset button, put it into standby, and the blue eject light was coming on. SO i hit the main power switch. Just wondering, what points could be causing this. AS well, should i have thicker wire for the Y Point? Thanks!!!
Note: Romeo Mod was performed on this system yesterday, and I put about 30mins of gameplay on it, with it working fine.
your rst wire is touching the orange cap block - just route it elsewhere and clean the area from any possible flux - and it will work ;-)
Oh Ok, so even if the the insulation of the wire is touching, that could be the case? As well, Little bit more of a problem now. I opened the system up to check the romeo mod, and pin 17 of the romeo mod came off. Now I do have an la6508 replacement chip here, looks like this one, is it okay if i just hook this up, the picture states to remove the 4 pins on the one side there, but not pin 17. Thanks again summ0ne!!
try to solder to the stub where the pin came off - just use enough flux.
it might work with the replacement pcb without pin17 connected
just remember to do the romeo mod on the replacement pcb then (it has a BA5815FM) http://romeo.altervista.org/BA-LA/BA5815V7.jpg
if neither of it works, just use a la from a dead ps2 board
Ok, Your very useful I tried on the stub, going to keep trying, loy mentioned to dremel in a little, so I am goign to do that soon. Now one more question!
I already lifted those 4 pins as mentioned in the picture I attached previsouly, however I don't want to replace the la if i can get it working. So i soldered them back down, but I just want to make sure they are making proper contact to the pads which they are supposed to be attached. So my question is, do u know of points on the motherboard that should give me continuity between those points? That way I can touch one end of the multimeter to a leg of the la6508, and another on another point and make sure they are making proper contact.
Thanks once again, been very helpful!
Great, Thanks again! I am goign to fix this system up tomorrow, can't find the dremel right now, AS well looks like the romeo mod wire also pulled the copper on the 5v it was connected to (the normal one that ShadowKnyght has on his site here
Do you know of any other safe +5v's close by?
Thanks once again!
just solder to the same hole from the other site of the mobo
Ok That didn't seem to work LOL. No Eject or nething now, it ejected once then wouldn't eject nemore. Alright, thanks alot summ0ne though, I am just going to get a replacement la6508.
I don't think the laser is blown, it wouldn't make much sense to be, but anyways, if i check the coils on it and they are good, then the laser should be fine right? Thanks!
Edit Note: I opened it up seemed the wire going from pin 17 to 5v on the bottom had come off on both ends. Will be trying with a different point soon.
