Default Can someone give me some info on a PSX5501?

sponsored links


I ran into a problem last night while soldering a stealth chip to a 5501. Can chips be no good off the bat? I soldered the chip and all contacts looked good but the PSX woould NOT boot up? Not only a burned game but a normal game as well?

I took it apart to make sure all my contact were good. They looked fine. This is my 3rd solder job on these so I have some experiance at this.

I ran into a problem. On the 4th contact point the solder came off the contact? I can NOT get the solder to stick to it any more? How can I get it to stick if at all? Did I screw this up so it is no longer upgragable to a chip?

I cut all chip wires and the PSX booted up fine then?

Could the chip be no good? And how can I solder to the 8th point on the board with no contact there?

Thanks for your time. And sorry if this is the wrong topic forum to post in? I wasn't sure where to put it...

Thanks gain..

I reckon ur chip is ok as i never came across a defective one and i'v chipped over 200 consoles, the problem is ur 8th solder point,
The only way out of that is to trace the link on the pcb to that point, and solder it their, or if you can see the small line that led to that point just gently scrape the insulation layer off it and soldier directly onto that line, and remember not to have your soldering iron too hot next time, On the other hand you can put a 4 wire chip in it assuming it does not need the same point. Good Luck
