030 bios v4 and M3 works?
030 bios v4 and M3 works? –
I've made an homebrew with scenix dip chip with smd resonator mounted directly on pins.
The problem is:
Boot only the first time, successive reset don't.
The i need to poer down a while and the boot again...
I've test blackcat also and I've the same results....
Can be smd components warm?
try 16k resistor on reset line instead of 33k
no way..yesterday was good...
but today boots sometimes 1\100...
controlled every point and tested ritek and apple dvdr, verbatim cdr but no way, boots only originals discs...
Dunno if is the smd resonator, but i don't think as is the same used by magic3 original from parallax...
maybe your 33 kohm is to big and the chip does'nt recognize the reset signal. thats why i am use 16 k to 22 k resistor.
16 kohm to 22 kohm for reset signal. kondensator in +5 volt and GND.
also try to use a 50 mhz murata resonator, it's much better for your homebrew.
try maybe alternate W1 point. at my ps2 models its works perfect.
every boot a success.
when DVD-R is not booting, use apple, pioneer, verbatim DVD-R. adjust your laser.
then it must boot 100% success.
the chip recognise the bios but for v4 exist 2 type of dvd-controller and i think this chip supports only the newer v4r not the old...
v1, v2, v3, vXr but not v4 old....
can anyone confirm?
I'm using the beta 3 code not the building kit and i've replaced the resonaotor with another...
The fact is:
Worked fine for 2 days, then sopped to work, when i got the consolle in my hand tryed and has bboted 3 times the nothing...
Flashed and reflashed the chip and he booted some....like a joke ....Ps2 was meaning piss off to this chip I want a good expensive chip...**** off stupid consolle I say
I think is a laser problem.
Anyway I've just orderd a messiah2 and will see, I've handed with this board for too many hour and i don't wanna **** it...
just to let u know is not the resonator smt the problem explained before...I've successfully made work this chip on a v7 pal with smt resistors and smt resonator mounted directly on dil chip...
