I had no experience of electronics before (except from school). I have now chipped 10 ps2's without blowing any. All chips work I have only had one problem and that being a wire snapped after putting all ps2 back together. The machine worked but didn't play backups. I opened her back up and fixed the problem.

I use a 15w soldering iron, a 0.1mm point tip, a cheap low melting cored solder (~0.7mm), 30 awg kynar wire and 22 awg wire for gnd and voltage. All from Farnel except Kynar wire, from darkplanets. I also have some desoldering braid but havn't had to use any yet. I also find it easier to solder to the via's, where possible. I use magic v3.1+ and duo 2 se chips.

yes anyone can do it. remember there is always 1st time for everybody.

you need basic electronics knowledge and skills, the right tools for the job too. steady hands and most of all guts.

with reduced wires count on late mod chips, you dont need the razor blade method anymore.

sod the messiah1 on V3, never tried it.

i only use fine tip 12W antex soldering iron and a broad tip 15W for power cables.

my problem now is fungus growing on the solder sponge. why this happens?
