Oh man if this is your first install you are going to have a very very very tough time.

Use a desoldering braid to get the excess solder off.

***********.dms3.com/diagrams/dms3_v3_diagrams.htm


This was for a version 4 on the DMS3 board but the same things apply
Well my first version 4 took me about 10 hours worth of work to get it work right I closed and opened the PS2 at least 17 times during that period.

Biggest tip USE FLUX (It sounds like you havent been using it to me)

To get mines to work I:

1. Used the ground wires wrapped around D & E trick with electrical tape over the top of that separating the wires from the rest

2. I made sure the D & E were soldered on that side by themselves and were they were not physicaly touching any other bios points acidentally keep wires short to prevent this also. All other bios wires were attached over the top of the chip and secured with hot glue

3. I used the DMS3 version 4 alternative installation 2 diagram
for all the points noted except for R,S,T & U

4. I used the vias on DMS3 version 4 alternative installation 3 Bottom side for R,S,T & U I filled the vias with solder before I attached my pretinned wires. (I also put flux on the point before I tried attaching the wires. After I soldered the wires and gave a slight tug to make sure that they were at least connected I followed up with hot glue about 2cm from the points. I also made sure that the wires were flat and tight and separated from each other before I use the hot glue.)

4. I doubled the ground wires and kept them pretty short

After this it finally worked

[B]Since you have a version 3 you have to solder on the CD\DVD controller points try using small peices of a soda can in between the cd\dvd controller pins to solder to wires correctly. Remeber to use flux on the points and pretin your wires before you solder them[/B]

I would recommend uninstalling the chip and sell the ps2 and get a new easier version 7 to solder instead (still very difficult to solder if you have never installed a chip but at least 3X easier than a version 3)

Sending the new ps2 to someone might be best an PS2 is a terrible thing to waste

Hope that helps best of succes in whatever you end up doing.

Just use desolder braid to remove solder. And flux. DO NOT use tape for any points. The V3 is the hardest possible system to mod, and the DMS3 the hardest chip to install. When you said "its impossible" it probably is if you've never modded a PS2 before. Also watch out when you're soldering and you said the points "don't stick" as if you hold the soldering iron on one point for too long trying to get it to stick you will fry the mainboard.

Hey Madison I also want to clarify when I mention tape I just mean to separate the D & E wires from the rest and to isolate them from all the other wires. I have found that this has helped out in my version 7 installs tremedously. The ground wires wrapped around points D & E with the electrical tape over the top did the trick for me with the version 4.

I agree that the DMS3 is the most picky chip I have even seen when it comes to soldering that puppy in but when you get them in they do work very well.

I prefer soldering in a messiah 2 over a DMS3 anyday
I also can say that I have never ever had a failed boot on a messiah 2 period but I can't say the same for DMS3
But rebooting twice about 1/18 boots is not a big deal either. (At least on all the PS2s I have installed the DMS3s in)

DMS3 rocks. I've been installing them and while the installation is difficult, the chip functions are the best.

V4 and under have the difficult DVD controller legs. A snap for any pro installer.
