PS2 V5 & V6 no power tech help needed with weird problem
Hi, I have a V5 & V6 ps2 and they both will not power and was hoping someone could help me out.
I bought a new SPCH 30001 R off a forum and the guy said that he stuck a no solder mod in it and it was the wrong version. The console had no longer powered on I had bought it in hopes to fix it.
I had tried the main 3.15 125V PSU fuse and it still did not power on.
no fan, no red light, no eject, nothing just dead.
Tried a dreamcast power cord on it just to see if the cord was bad but still nothing.
I took it all apart and everything looked new no dust or obvious burns or damage anywhere except the power/eject ribbon.
I had replaced that with new still no go.
I was wondering what damage that may cause. Is there a fuse it could have blown by putting the wrong no solder chip in?
I am assuming the no solder chip was the one that plugged into the ribbon ports of the mobo but I am not 100% sure.
So I found a family member that had a SCPH 30001 R.
He said it would power and go to dash but give a disk read error and I could have it. I was geeked thinking I would just take the motherboard out of that and put in the new V5 mentioned above.
I got the other SCPH 30001 R in and got right on it and when I got it down to the board it was the exact same but the power/eject ribbon port pins on the motherboard was opposite of the V5 so I am assuming this is a V6.
like a dummy I never powered on the 2nd one the V6 to see if it went to dash or not I just stripped it and put it in the V5 threw it together powered it on and nothing just like the original V5 was doing.
I swapped both PSU's, both DVD drive assemblys, both ribbon cables, both power switch assembly's, both controller ports.
To make it short I swapped every electronic in it part for part in every combination and there both plain dead with no power in any combination.
I am bumbed and have no clue what to do now.
Not sure if the V5 PSU was bad and now it ruined or blown the V6 board too or if the V6 was bad to begin with or whats going on.
I would like to know what are the main fuse's to try for no power at all and also what fuse's if any are there for the ribbon ports on the motherboards.
if anyone has a v5 or v6 motherbaord to get rid of let me know as I would probably buy it lol.
