    I'm trying to install magic V on a v9 PS2. Everything looks fine up to now, but i cannot solds the connection at the back. The solder doesn't seem to hold. Anyone have tricks. It's wire B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I

    Thanks

    You need to scrape the masking off of the contacts carefully with something like a utility knife or perhaps lightly with a wire brush but be careful not to rub too hard with a wire brush. The goals is to expose the metal in the contacts. They should look a little more shiny when you're finished.

    i usr a razor blade , also putting a little flux on them before you solder helps alot .

    Hey guys, if the solder points are soldered faulty or if there is a short, could the screen go blank? My PS2 w/ Magic V chip was playing ok for a day or two, but after a while, my screen goes blank, not even the Sony main screen comes up. I wonder what the problem is?
