Magic 3 problem installing in Version 2!!!!
Magic 3 problem installing in Version 2!!!! –
I cant get the mother boards apart to get to the (S) connection thats suppose to be on the bottom side of the mother board all my other points are solderd and ready to go I'll attach a picture to show you all what I'm dealling with Its like its stuck or something please help anyone who has done this before or taken this version ps2 apart before. thanks
Yeah... This is gonna be a pain, but...
Get your desoldering braid out and start desoldering those 4 pins you have circled in the pic. Take your time, it will eventually come appart. LOL. I can almost remember the first time I cam accross the v1/2. What a pain!!
I was about to make a post on how to do this
I knew were the S point was but i couldnt get it either cuz of those 4 pins i havent de-soldered them yet but i want to ask if de-soldering it would work
Also how did you solder those little bios points (i,h,g,d,b,c,w,p,o,n,m,r,q,t,u,,v, and the GND)
Those are so small and it seems like the 30 gauge wire is bigger than those points
Help me plz
P.S how big should the soldering iron be, and does the solder have to be small too, or can i just melt some solder on the wire and then put the wire on the point and heat it up
Wat if the solder connects the bios points
Did you get to the S point???
there is an alternate "S" point on top of the board
I can't remember where but I did use it once before.
Search the posts and you should find the info
it will save you from desoldering those leads
hope this helps
ya i know

Ya i found the point it is a point that the neokey uses, now my problem is those bios chips. The points are so small and the 30 gauge wire is the same exact size
Would it be possible to just wrap the 30 gauge wire around the point since it is a wire and not a solder dot,
EX: solder dot- º
Bios points- _
---> bios chip |||||||||||||||| \_ <--- Point
Can i wrap the wire around it really really tightly
and then solder the bigger points
