Default Help Me Fix My Ps2 !!

sponsored links

 
is screwed up my first ps2 when trying to install a no soder mod...
i couldn't get the thing to work so i tried plug in the mod reversly..
back then i didn't know how gs2 and no soder mod work.. i thought it would be as simple as modding a psx..
and of course my ps2 is busted.. so i bought another one..

here is the question.. anybody had the same problem before? how did you fix it? is changing the motherboard the only way to go?


i would really appreciate your inputs

(ps2 v5 gs2.12)

Modding a PSX is harder than installing a No Solder mod in a PS2.

How did you plug it in backwards, do you have a webcam so we can get the pics and help you?

no i dont have a webcam

nah.. i couldn't have flipped the no solder mod.. the 2 connectors are different size.. am i right?
i think what i did was inserted the ribbons with both of them flipped over (not swapping them)... then ps2 no more power up...
that was a bad idea huh?.. i thought i installed it wrong, but what it really was just i didn't know how to boot

i checked the power button unit.. it appears to still be okay.. the mod chip is still okay (it's in my 2nd ps2)... so i assume something else broke...

Odds are you popped a fuse. More than likely the ps1 fuse. Get a multimeter and check them out. They're surface-mount fuses located on the mainboard.

i did check for popped fuse.. but the main power supply fuse was alright.. however i didn't know about mainboard fuses. i'll check the motherboard again..

What version is your ps2? If it's a v7, I've got a diagram with all of the onboard fuses that I could email you. I tried to send it to you earlier, but you have your email turned off. Let me know if you want it...
