After FMCB the ps2 Passed Out
After FMCB the ps2 Passed Out –
I know this may be weird, but i have to question maybe someone know what happend.
I had a ps2 Slim working perfectly, never hacked only original media was inserted on it, one day I got a memory with the Mc boot, but about 2 hours later I wanted to change the game, when I turn off the power and turn it on again the screen went black I only can see the logo of mcboot but in dark, all screen dark and with all the brightness i can se the logo... My question is... is it posible that the motherboard have passed out (I believe so) if someone has the same trouble and have a mode to repair it I would be gratefull. xD
Well fmcb has nothing to do with it, not that your saying it did.
It must have been going.
Have you turned off the main power, let it sit for 30 min and try it again.
May I ask what version PS2 slim you have. Is it a V12 by chance. It may just be overheating.
If you have turned the power off and get the FMCB boot splash screen when you turn the console on again, then no matter how dark that screen may be, it is still a clear indication that most of your console is still working. Otherwise you'd either see a completely black screen or some static. Both the main EE processor and the slave IOP processor must be perfectly well, as well as all the interface circuitry involving the memory cards. Otherwise you could not see the FMCB splash at all.

It is not clear from you description if anything further happens after the (superdark) display of the FMCB splash screen. Does it proceed beyond that screen or not, showing any menu or reading any discs ?
