Unhappy Me or the Chip ??? [PS2 ver 6; ]

sponsored links

 
I would like to beleive I am pretty good with a magnifying glass and soldering iron. have about 12 PSX and PS2's that say so..Howvere I ordered a magic 3 with clip of all things and no luck with a ver 6 and 7 PS2.
So is it me or have others had problems with the blue 3. I guess my next question is what chip is recommended for ver 6 & 7 that eliminates swap

the clips are meant to crap (they come lose easy and overheat things)
if your sure your boot methods corect and your backups are good try soldering the chip (dont use the clips)

the most recommended chips are the messiah 2 but dont bother getting a clone of these cos youll end up with a magic3 on a green pcb

can you take the magic chips back? if not use them anyway
how many diyou buy?

I bought 1 and when complained received another.. I had actually consider bypassing the clip, figured I would give a go this weekend but I will admit points m, n, o and p have me biteing my nails.

messiah 2 TW is exactly the same as the messiah 2 pro. I know I have it and it works. So unless you have had personal experience with it don't post BS. Plus it only costs $25...
