version v12.0, v12.1, v12.2 or v13 and subzero question
dusnt matter about that lot now i figured it out i have a v12.1 (i didnt reolise it says 683 on the actual resistor lol)
im fine with soldering wires to chips and so on but that L2 point looks solid to do without bridging the 3 lines next to it. on pics iv seen it just looks like a big blob of solder
for me doing that fix was a lot harder then installing a chip. next time i do one il place the fix someware els and solder wires to the places
If you have three "dot´s" below the SMD´s then you have an early v12 every v13 I´ve seen have only two "dot´s" and the "sony mech-fix" on the top off the board next to the RS2004FS
what about the ones that have 01D resistor, two via's (dots) and no "sony fix". Is that a v12.2 ?
if it´s doesn´t have the sony fix I think I should go with the SumOne fix.Really don´t know cause every Ps2 here in Sweden is v13 or above for a long time now.
Are you shure it doesn´t have the fix on the topside of the board?
It is right next to the Rs2004Fs where the "VanDrunen" could be soldered
i just installed a mi into the v12 i put the fix on and twice it has frozen the the ps2 and made the off button not work. is this a bad install of chip or the mech fix saving ma lasers ass
