Im not a big poster here but I do read your forums and usualy solve my own problems But today Im stuck on a BSOD problem on two v14's.
It started with me and a friend trying to install a DMS Pro S.E. in he's PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-12) with a successfull install but lots of BSOD. We then checkd the installation twice, and I also redid the installation just to make sure and still we had the same problem. After checking with DMS forums we found out that this seems to be a known problem with DMS Pro modchips. At the end we wasnt even able to boot the PSTwo with anything else then BSOD's.
So i recomended him that we install a Matrix Infinity (green dot) and ship back the DMS Pro S.E. to the people he got it from (this was also what DMS forums recomended).
We took out the DMS chip and cleaned up everything and then installed the Matrix Infinity (green dot) modchip just to find out that we where having the same problem with that one too.
So I where guessing that maybe we had blown a fuse or something, so we checked all the fuses we could find (PSxx) to our supprise that all of them are OK.
I then removed the MI modchip in hope that something just where shorted since removing the eject wiring didnt make the PSTwo boot up as a normal PSTwo just to find out that the PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-12) only gives a green light, a litle flicker (the usual one you se when you turn the PSTwo on) and no picture or sound. The fan seems to be spinning (maybe a bit higher then normal?) but there is no noice from any laser movement. It got so late that we had to call it a night.
I then today took the Matrix Infinity (green dot) modchip that we had removed from that PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-12) and installed it in another PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-02) that needed a Matrix Infinity. To my shock this PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-02) also reacted the same way after the install, I also this time double checked the installation, tryed removing the eject wire to try starting it without the modchip active and then redid all the wiring and still the same black screen. In a desperate atempt (stupid me knowing this wouldnt work anyway since the PSTwo wasnt booting in any mode) tryed to replace the Matrix Infinity modchip with a new one just to find out what I allready knew BSOD. I also checked this consoles fuses (think i found them all PSxx) and took out the Matrix Infinity (green dot) and then cleaned up everything and checked for soldier splashes but nothing. Its all the same BSOD as the other PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-12) no matter how i try to start the PSTwo (v14 - GH-040-02).
I consider myself a pro installer with alot of experiance but for some reason this beats me how could happen. So any schematics, tips or tricks or any help at all are all appriciated
Thanks in advance all.
