Ps2 Acting Strangly after Duo
Ps2 Acting Strangly after Duo –
Just installed a Duo in a v5 and now the discs dont spin the CD tray seems to come out of track when ejecting also the ps2 works fine but it acts as if it is a brand new ps2 everytime it is turned on and it wont read memory cards or anything
Can someone please tell me whats wrong with it
1 Check the cable that goes to the sony 5volt battery (it is a thin ribbon cable going to the mb)
acts as if it is a brand new ps2 everytime
2 Thats sounds like the Ba ic is blown
discs dont spin the CD tray
3 If all els fails remove the chip and do it again
Removed mod –
Okay now i removed the duo and the ps2 boots up regular (no more as if it were brand new) the only problem now is the disc wont spin
If the disc doesnt spin that sound like the ba ic is fried(this will happen if the chip didnt work in the first place or you installed it incorectly or sometimes bad laser coils)
Check out http://www.lik-sang.com for a suitible replacement
how do i test if my ba is fried or not????
When i switch on the PS2 the drive makes a little skid noise and then nothing..Disk doesent move at all..The only movemement is a small jerk of the lazer that moves a bout an inch...but i can see that it dosent turn at all..the boot will not proceed past this 1 skid regardless of what type of disk is tried...Mod chip is working normally(it seems)even let me reflash 2.2 to my DMS3...
I replaced the drive completely(Everthing but the ribbon cable that joins to the lazer) and still the problem is the same...
The ribbon cable that goes from the lazer to the connecter on the motherboard..when i was lifting the connector door to release the cable...the whole connector lifted off the MB..I managed to carefully push it back into place...it seems to be ok..could this have caused this..does it need to be soldered back
Browser..just memory card icon..no disk
