Please Help! Guessing I blew fuse or power supply...
Well, I posted in the modchip section yesterday about how I was sure I installed my CC 2.0 perfectly, yet when I hit the reset button, the light went from its red state to its green state, but only for barely a second then it went back to red.
Didn't get any replies on that, but now I know it isn't a modchip problem. I just took out the modchip and all of the wires and the same thing was happening. And the laser or disc spinner doesn't even try to start up either.
I had the EXACT same thing happen just the other day modding a psone! Yet this has never happened before, now twice in as many days to two different consoles!
First of all, what sort of things can cause a fuse or power supply to blow like that 2 times to two consoles in two days?
Too much static on me? I don't know. I do use a grounded iron, and I make sure I ground myself.
Anyhow, my question is (and I do have a multimeter although I don't know how to use it other than to check if connections are good or bad)...How do I know what happened and how do I pinpoint the problem area?
How do I know what fuse has blown, or if the power supply has gone bad?
Thing is, like I said, there is power going to the console as I do get the red light and green light for that second, so it is getting power.
Does this mean that it must be a fuse?
How do I check which one is bad?
Btw, I have a v12 slimline.
