Hi, I have a little problem with a v15 PAL PS2 I just installed a Matrix Infinity modchip in.
It's dead. When I connect the ac-adapter the LED doesn't lit up red as it normally does - nothing happens. When I push the button, nothing happens either. No fan activity, no LED, no nothing.
I haven't put the motherboard back in its case - I just connected the ac-adapter to the motherboard directly and no laser is connected. It was possible to start it up this way on a v12 I modded, isn't it on v15? Do I need to assemble it entirely for it to start (thinking there might be some button that needs to be pressed or something).
Anyway, I checked all my solder points and they all seem fine.. but I did notice one possibly major problem!
I connected the s-wire to the wrong point!
I disconnected that wire entirely (i e did not solder it to the correct point, it's just loose) and the PS2 still won't give any sign of life. Did I kill it by applying it to the same point? What does that other thing do? Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Is the S/SX wire for playing imported PS1 games? If not - what's it for?
If I detach the modchip and ALL the wires, do you think it will work again?
Another thing, check this out. What do you think?
I'm really stressed out right now. It's not even my PS2.
I hope anybody can help. Thanks in advance!
