Neo2 - Swap Magic - Not Working - Suggestions?
I'm a newb at PS2 but not mods in general ...
Bought an 8wire chip from www.etmdirect.co.uk and got the swap magic disks.
I've checked wires 1, 2, 3, 4, 7,8 and they all look fine (I'm a pretty good solderer)
5 and 6 have been resoldered (3 times) and I'm sure that's all fine as I can pick the motherboard up from each wire - so it's a good joint. Plus they were tinned correctly. The wires are not touching anything else (these are the wires by the DVD cable)
No wires are joined together when they shouldn't be
Originals work fine
Audio CDs work fine
CDR backups work fine (with swap magic)
I haven't got a DVDR backup to work
If I power off PS2 with Swap Magic DVD disk in (and keep power button pushed as suggested), and then let it say insert disk, then let go of the power button, it doesn;t eject ... but I'm damn sure that wires 5 and 6 are attached correctly. I could be wrong - but am convinced ...
Obviously if I eject at this screen, then put it in, I get a red border.
My PS2 is a UK PAL v3 - I've heard that some of these have problems ?!??
I know it's unlikely to be the disk ... but this does have problems loading sometimes ??!
Could it be the wires?
Any help appreciated
