v12 wont turn on - please help
v12 wont turn on - please help –
heres the story .. a strig of stuff ups...
I installed a laser fix (the usual clone with the diodes and the matrix pic) into a PAL v12.. no hassle..
Tested the v12 and it worked
Installed a matrix infinity but used the ntsc instructions (acidently)... and it worked fine for about an hour... or 2
then got real tempramental.. sometimes it would black screen, other times it would load originals no hassle.. I could get to the infinity menu screen, but couldnt boot backups
anyways - realised what i had done - so i rewired it the PAL way...
Took the infinity out thinking that i had either stuffed the chip - or it was a dud... and put a ghost 2 in ...
with the ghost 2 - once you press reset/power, it turns right off again (after a second)..
Took the ghost out - no change
took the laser fix out - no change..
I cant see any shorts etc .. I have tested all the fuses
I'm a little embarresed to admit that i found the problem...
Whilst removing the mod (which i found was faulty), I also removed some hot glue i used for the wiring .. And with the hot glue i took off some resistors/capacitors (whatever they r)... About 3 in total
That'l teach me!
