Cold Cathodes –
I tried fitting these a while ago but they dont seem to work so can anyone help me out, one of you guys showed me a diagrame of where to solder to and that was good but it doesnt work, when i got the cathodes they was all rigged up for a pc so it had a box thing connected to it i just cut that off and soldered the wires straight to the power supply? did i need to keep the box on or something?
the boxis the balast...cold cathod need like .. undred volt.....
the balast take 12v.. or 5v ... and change it to ..lots of vilt for the cold cathod...
you need it...
conect the input of the balast .. no the output of it....or just the cold cathode its useless
ive been wondering ..how to put cathodes on for a while..
the cathode is plugged into a inverter, and then into a molex, its the thing that powers a hdd, you need to cut one end off the molex and connect the red (12v) and ground (black, i dont know which of the 2 blacks to use, i would do both) and solder them onto a 12v point onto your ps2, i think their is 12v going staight into your motherboard, i soldered my leds their, but i dont know about soldering a cathode their, and the only size cathode that fits in the case of a ps2 is a 4 inch,
Red is the 5v on a molex conector. You must cut the yellow (12v)....
Ok wheres a good place to put the inverter? its huge so i dunno where i can fit it in
if you dont need your expension bay.. you could put it there... ..... I dont find any over place.......good luck
if you cant find another place because you are using the expansion bay then just run in off into the back, its not a big deal really because if you are using the network adapter it stichs out so the inverter will fit right it. or you could do some reserch on those small inverters, that they use to put le wire in an xbox controller, very cool.
Is there some kind of tutorial? Please post one on how to put a cathode in! Thank you.
