This happens even with origal games, so I think probaly the coils are busted.

if you do that, you will ruin some other component. fuses are there for a reason.

I've installed the chip and fix myself, and I've also installed a few other ps2- and xbox-chips, so I'm not a complete idiot when it comes to this. Just self-tought.
Not sure if this is relevant, but my guess is the whole thing started by me not clicking a very tight-fit dvd in place (sloppy, I know) and there was wierd noises when I turned it on. I think something may have been damaged in the prosses.
never ever bypass a fuse - you will cause major damage if the fuse needs to blow later down the line for some reason.
the only way to test fuses is to use meter and check for continuity, or use the ohms setting if ur meter doesnt do continuity.
