    Well I think I real did it this time. I was soldering a magic chip to a v7 PS2 mobo and snagged the "S" wire and broke the solder off from one side of the brown fuse, resisiter thing. Now after removing the chip the PS2 will turn on and the tray opens but the screen is black and wont boot up. Is this because of the damage to the "S" solder point or could it be something else? And is it posiable to repair this? My guess is that it's a surface mount resisiter and that replacing it shouldn't be a problem. Im hoping some of you pro's out there can help me out.
    Thanks!

    I've got a v5 and have the same problem. I'm afraid our PS2's are dead... One thing I'm gonna try is remove all the wires, clean up the soldering and check for shorts and hope the PS2 works again...

    If I were you I would have gotten the no solder modchip for PS2 from modchipinc.com it works on V5/V6/V7 :)
