Default God no!!! Busted chip legs on board, possible fix? :/

sponsored links

 
ok maybe not, you DEFINALTELY need a magnifying glass, hands down the most important thing. i know this, because i broke a v4 ps2.

ok so i wasnt worried about installing the chip, well i should of been.

anyways, heres the deal (a very bad deal), on messiah 2 pro (and dms3) there is these points you have to connect side by side. On messiah 2 pro there is 8 wires that got to connect side by side (dms3 i think its 4 or 8), you know what i mean if youve done it before.

ok the first one i got connected, but when connecting the 2nd, well, the little legs just said "later holmes", they vanished.

So here's what's left. half of the leg for the 2nd connection, and for the 3rd connetion the entire leg is gone.

this fixable at all?? i dont know if anybody who has installed a chip, who this might of happen to, has attempted anything like this out of being bored/desperate.

ok, lets take in regards of the leg that is totally missing, from between the chip and the board.

can i, insanely, try to etch back the chip, find the point where the leg is supposed to connect to the chip, and with EXTREMELY fine accuracy resolder a leg/wire back on.

Then, insanely, try to etch up the mobo alittle bit and solder the other end in??

any Electronic Engineers in the house :-)

i tried rick's ps parts or whatever its really called, he emailed me back saying he's out of v4 mobo's....so that i guess is out of the ? for a v4 replacement.

ok, disregarding the problem, and looking back. If i had a magnifying glass that could of done like 20x it wouldnt of been a big deal, in fact its probably pretty easy. Considering i got the first one on, and at one point i got the second one on right (messed the 2nd one up trying to get the 3rd one so i had to take the 2nd one back off), i think all you need is a tip that is .5mm smaller and a good magnifying glass...yes or no?? it seemed to me it wouldnt be too difficult aslong as you have a magnifying glass.


anywasy, the thing doesnt work, so any suggestions from personal expeirence??

if your wondering exactly what the problem looks like. imagine 2 legs side by side on the describe chip. the left leg being half gone. i mean that the leg is still connected to the mobo, but not to the chip. and the other leg is just gone

I've never seen or heard of anyone repairing a problem like that, but you may as well try... it can't get any more broke, right? How in the world did the leg "disappear"? Are you using a 200 Watt soldering iron or something? I guess maybe you could try a magnifying glass, but I find it much harder with that. It's basically just skill and tons of practice that you need... I wouldn't bother getting a new mainboar, you're going to pay $100+ for that, just get a factory refurbished PS2 for $150...

yeh it cant get anymore borke...no i used a 15watt...dunno, ive never seen or heard of that happen before. Ive modded plenty of ps1's the same way, and this never happened. i think its the same exact metal and all, i know the size is identical.

well actually i just looked at my ps1 under a magnifying glass...yeh, it undoubtedly helps...and alot.

yeh im going to try something...just dont know what yet.

o as far as skill...nah, that dont matter on this spot. you needed either professional equipment (not radioshack stuff) or a good magnifying glass.

if youve done these spots just freehand before...all 8 of them with radioshack equipment and no magnifying glass, that's just nuts.

You must have been holding the iron there a very long time.

Do you use flux?

You can try soldering a jumper wire if you can find a teeny tiny bit if metal and that should fix it (as long as your pad is still intact)
