V14 SX point capacitor value.
V14 SX point capacitor value. –
Anyone know the precise value of the capacitor located at the usual (for most mods) SX/SCEx on the V14. Had mine lift on a GH-041-03 board and replaced it with a 100pf ceramic as a temporary measure, going into the city to grab a proper surface mount replacement later this week.
shuldent relly matter hook up sxwire to CD/DVD controler Leg use multimeter to test pin as its the firts one.. use pic as refrence to sx leg only pic i got
You mean this point?
If so, I've tried that and no luck with booting ps1 backups, which is the same result as with the current situation mentioned above. I think it's likely that the original cap was fine, but dont have capacitance on my multimeter so couldn't test, replacing it seemed like the easiest solution to eliminate that as a source of problems.
Thanx for your input.
thats a good pic .. ya i dont know value of the ones for V12-15 my geuss is a .1mf cap as i dont brake things. system shuld boot fine without it using alt sx point.
Yup, think the problem is probably firmware related, PSX backups try to boot but freeze with a black screen. Sadly the issues I had with getting PS1 backups to behave encouraged me to resolder that point numerous times, other than lifting the edge being soldered of the cap off the board momentarily (it just showed slight movement) the cap itself looks in good shape, it only got 2 seconds of iron contact each time at most, from a 13watt iron. Just with PS1 not working my mind keeps wondering what else could be wrong, but I can't think of anything other than the cap.
With that cap value, I've seen values of 0.1uf right down to 10pf all preceeded by "I think". Ahh well, I think I'll leave the PS2 alone until next firmware update from Crystal and see what happens.
Thanks for your input Crans, I appreciate it.
And if anyone has gone to the effort of testing that capacitor with a capacitance meter, please let me know. Lastly does anyone know the code for the package size of that component... 0603?
