Weird V7 problem –
Modded a v7 with a Dms3 v2, and when i first started it up, it brought up the normal sony screen and went straight to the menu. I then was about to insert adisc when i heard the sony intro music replay as i was watching the screen. It began to replay over and over, cutting into it self. I shut the system off, turn it back on, no display/audio. Leave it off a while, turn it on, get video with the same audio problem as before, and then upon turning it off and on, no display/audio. So i open the system up, and pull the dms3 out of the system, as well as looking around for any bridges. I didn't see any, put it back together, and same thing. When i try getting it to start a game like this, it freezes at the Playstation 2 Screen, and doesn't play the playstation 2 sound.
Anybody have any ideas what the problem could be? Where have i bridged? Thanks guys!
you just have to go over your board carefully with a magnifying glass for a solder drop somewhere
Yeah, I plan on doing that soon, however was wondering what area you guys believe could be the spot where this is most likely taking place. Thanks alot ftothe3.
I would definately start looking near the bios chip. But with the way the ps2 board is designed it could be anywhere.
...here are some tips for you. When you mod a PS2 and the screen goes black. Look at the bios chip for bridging if there's none. Look for solder balls on the board. If there's none. Check all the fuses on the board to see if you blew anything.
Don't try to turn it on and of on and off, that just makes it worst. You're forcing your PS2 to work when it can't because something is wrong. Please try everything you can before putting it together and trying to boot it.
When I get a PS2 with blackscreen and no sound, the first thing I would do is take power off of the modchip then try to see if it would boot. If no, I take the modchip out and try to see if the PS2 is still working. (I check for solder balls and verify of the board is clean before I hook it back up.)
There are so many things on that board your eyes may miss something if you dont' go by carefully.
Yep. Thanks for your help guys. I went over the board, and i found the problem. Stupid me, i put the dms3 chip in the same spot as where duo's are usually mounted (close to the bios), and when i put the whole system back together, the chip was forced upward, and caused some of the pins of the big IC To short. Slowly heated and toothpicked the pins, and voila, it works Thank you!
That's why I always tape the metal casing with electric tape.
