V5 PS2 Unmodded Eject Problems
V5 PS2 Unmodded Eject Problems –
I got a dead PS2 from a friend. Unit didn't power up at all. I swapped the power supply and it worked, hell it worked great. It read everything I threw at it from Blue disc's to DVD9's.
I had a Matrix Infinity Green Dot sitting on the shelf so I decided I was gonna chip this thing and sell it in college. I only soldered the 3.3v, SX, Y, Reset, and Ground before I changed my mind. I just didn't feel like doing it so I desoldered everything and put it back together. I then fired it up. I hit the eject button and the tray opened. I put a disc in and hit the eject button again. The tray closed only to open again by itself. I hit the eject button again and nothing happend. I shut the system off and turned it back on and the tray went back in as it should. Now the pig won't open again.
I've tried 3 different Power/Eject switches and cables. All LED's work as they should. It's like the PS2 isn't receiving the EJECT signal. What could cause this? Please don't say BA chip
Also hitting the eject button while in standbye does NOT turn the PS2 on like it should.
All is well now. All I did was take it apart again, check fuses, reassemble and POOF! it was working. Maybe it was just a loose ribbon cable?
