how do you tell which motherboard you have?
how do you tell which motherboard you have? –
I posted the same question in the modchip section , but I didn't get any answers.
I wanted to swap a chip from one ps2 to another, and I want to make sure the new motherboard is going to work with the chip that's in the old ps2.
If there's a tutorial that I've overlooked , please post a link to it for me.
here's a pic of the chip and motherboard.
ok, according to what you've said my motherboard version is GH-035-11
I didn't notice a #35 in your pictures.
as you can see , the chip is a modbo v1.1
will this chip work on any other version motherboards? or do I have to get an exact same GH-035-11 ?
From what I can tell, you have to use any standard V12 diagram. I found a high res pic of your board, and compared it to the official Matrix Infinity diagram, (which modbo copied) and your board uses identical points as the one in the diagram. At this point, I'm convinced that you have an error in your install such as a solder bridge or two. What you need to do is go over it with a multimeter on continuity mode and find out what point(s) are erronious and correct them with desolder braid and carefully reinstalling them.
I'm going to try checking it with a multi meter as you suggested. can you give me a link to a pic showing where the wires are supposed to go. the link to the other pic doesn't have the letters where the wires are supposed to correspond to the chip.
I don't want to start prying the wires trying to trace to the end point.
my friend that owns the unit says it was working fine and then just stopped. he took it to a mod shop and they told him he need a new mobo.
hopefully its as you said, just a solder bridge or a broken connection.
thanks for the help so far.
if it was working and then just stopped, you need to check the fuses. Fuses will be labeled PS1 through PS15 I believe.
how do I check those ?
just check for continuity ?
ohms or continuity. if it's a bad fuse, it's not going to put through any current.
ok, thanks . I'll let you know how it goes
