Ok so I got this ps2 v7 with a matrix infinity. I bought it a few years ago brand new, but I never used it (I had another one), until recently when I chipped it. I have chipped a few consoles for friends and family before without problems.
About 3 days after it was chipped it began turning on by itself if left on standby mode. At first I thought a wire might have come lose, but that wasn?t it. So I replaced the eject/reset cable (not the chip wire) and the eject/reset ?button console? but that didn?t help. So I pulled the chip and cleaned the motherboard, that didn?t help either, it was still doing it without the chip.
That problem is so random, sometimes it turns on within 3 seconds of standby or sometimes 3 hours. And sometimes the reset button doesn?t work at all, but the eject button always works.
I have now put the chip back in and use it like that, I just have to use the power switch on back.
I think I tested all the fuses too, I might have missed one. But all the ones I tested were fine.
Anybody have any ideas or theories?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
