flashing red light after 15min of gameplay? HELP!
flashing red light after 15min of gameplay? HELP! –
Hey first id like to say, im a total newb to this scene. But I recently got my ps2 modded with a MI chip. I dont know what version ps2 I have, and I dont know how to tell what type of version I have. There are 7 screws on the bottom and I bought it when it came out with the network adapter bundle, also the cd tray says sony on it.
Anywho, after 15 min of playing a burned game the system seems to shut down and I get a little flashing red light on the console. Im noticing that the system is very hot. But im not sure exactly what the problem is. Heres what I do know...
1. The fan isnt rotating
2. Im not using a sony power adapter, instead im using some cheap one I bought from GameStop..."niko" something?
3. Im using memorex dvd-r's for my burned games. first time using them
4. Everything on the system is stock except the power cord.
5. Network Adapter is attached.
6. The console smells a little funny, like burning solder.
Any advise would be appreciated. Like what I may need to replace. What version of PS2 I have? etc. Please let me know. Thanks.
the fan.. whoever modded your system broke it or did not plug it in .. the system is overheating.
is it possible to fix this myself? i mean would you consider that fairly easy, the guy who modded my system lives quite aways, and i want to have this thing working for chistmas.
btw if anyone can tell me which version i have, model no: scph-50001/N
and i really think he did forget to plug it back in, he was kinda in a rush.
That's a V9.
To plug it in, you will need to remove the bottom screws, take off the time, remove the screws holding the controller port, take off the bottom, remove the power supply screws, remove power supply, and then you should be able to plug it in. It's only screws and should take maybe 10 minutes at most if you're being careful.
That's basically the same thing, but the power supply is the other side up.
thanks for your help...now i just gotta find a screwdriver..hehe
is it possible that by checking the fan that i dislodged something that has to do with the modchip, because now the fan is spinning but, im getting a red screen everytime i try to boot up a game. "please insert playstaytion or playstation 2 format disc" im using a matrix infinity chip, did i shut it off somehow?
bring it back to buddy, but dont tell him you opened it yourself.
BTW, memorex isnt the greatest media, your paying for its name.
