Default colourr fix....gone wrong

sponsored links

 
PS2 V5 30003R.....and MESSIAH 2

Help please..
i tried to implement the colour fix by bridging the 2 pins together. The solder bridged 2 many pins, so i tried cleaning them all up. I think i have done this.....i cannot detect any shorts between pins. BUT now my ps2 displays in black & white, also it will now not play anything...i just get the no data message.

well.. you wont have cleaned them enough.. are you using desolder braid?? youve either overheated the chip when removing it, or not removed all your shorts. - not sure why its saying no data, but it is most probably a short if it was working before

i cleaned them with braid...there is definately no short...also each pin is still connected to board.....perhaps i did apply too much heat to the chip.....would this cause these symtoms?

well, im not sure this is a common problem to be honest!

when i clean things with braid i do have to tell myself "****, dont forget you can overheat it!" - easy to forget when your desoldering i think..

it is possible, if you overheat the BA chip on a neo install your cd tray can eject really fast/slow, so its not totally broke, but its damaged from the heat..

this is possible, and id say likely symptoms..

Hint. When using a solder braid, add some extra flux to it and it will really soak up the solder in a hurry (although if you had flux then you wouldn't be in this mess).
