What’s up guys. Quick question for an annoying problem I have. I recently stripped the fan out of the PS2 motherboard. My buddy tried to solder it back in, but was unable to solder it into the original motherboard and instead soldered it to the motherboard power connector thingy. Ok, I don’t know what it’s called so I just put a pic up of the little fan mod that he did (thumbnailed, click for a waaaay bigger picture). Anyways, I believe that the fan is only supposed to only take 7v and I think the power source he connects it to is 12v. He said it should be fine. Anyways, the whole thing worked, so I didn’t really care. Only real differences are that the fan would constantly be spinning, even in sleep mode, unless it was switched off in the back, and the second difference being that the fan would just spin a little faster than normal. No biggie. Well, 4 days later my PS2 now will not turn on. No red light, no nothing. When I flip the switch the fan will not even spin. This all happened after I unplugged it and set it in a laundry basket full of clothes in my car when going from my apartment to my parents house. The night before we were jamming to Guitar Hero 2, with the PS2 working flawlessly. I am just wondering if you guys have any ideas as to what the problem could be. Is it the fan mod that my friend did, perhaps making a fuse blow somewhere, or would that not make a difference because of where he soldered it to? Did I damage it somehow in the laundry basket while traveling? Any ideas/input would be awesome. Thank a lot, guys.
