PS14 Fuse on a V12 (pal)
I found out that the ps14 fuse is blown after I installed a modbo 4.0 chip on my scph70004. I think that I just overheated it. I already found out that it is a 2A smd fuse. My question is will this fuse do the trick???
Hope you guys can help me,
According to this post, if it's a version 12, it needs a laser fix. I'm not sure eactly which type of fuse, but I searched and found this thread, but they never reported if the fuse worked or not.
I only want to know if the fuse shown in the link will be a good replacement of the one that is on the mainboard :). I've subzero fixes here but without a working ps14 fuse it wont do anything else as red green red.
If the dimensions are allright, it is good to there. Fuse is just a thin wire inside a box, nothing special.
Yes I know, I just wanted to mention the laser fix in case you weren't aware of it. I don't know enough about fuses to know which one works best, so I just pointed out a similar thread that might of been of some use. If you did read over that thread, and the link I pointed to here, you would see FahadSaid gave a lot of useful info on which type of fuses to use. So if none of that info is helpful, maybe someone here can reply, but there isn't as many people around these forums now who are into modding, etc as there used to be. Luckily, there are still some around like MysTiCy, who seem to know more about these things, thanks MysTiCy ; ).
Ok thanks for the info's i'll order some of them
Ok I replaced the fuse it powers on again and playing everything nicely. I reinstalled my modbo 4.0 chip and the green led stays on but nothing appears on the TV no screens no sound only a black screen....Laser moves discs spins up but stops after 10 seconds.
Just to mention I didn't connect point H, does anyone know what point H does on a modbo 4.0 chip?? Do I need to connect it...
H is related to regional things with discs, i dont remember it now exactly. Atleast in PAL consoles u need to connect the H for ModBo4. All other than those going to BIOS are related to disc handling.
I had same problem than u have, with 90004. After i replaced the ground/+5V with thicker wires, it did work again. But after couple of months, the problem came back.
Dunno is the problem related to wire thickness. I think the problem is some weird overheating issue, i still have'nt found the exact solution.
But then i thought, would sleep mode help in this? I've gave that PS2 back to the customer, so i dont remember, does the menu have a sleep mode-option?
Or u just have another fuse blown :)
