    Hi everyone,

    I'm somewhat stuck with a problem here. I modded my V9 PS2 back in Augest and well lets say it didn;t go perfectly but the system worked, only draw back was it didn't play ps1 games anymore (not a problem with me as i still had my modded ps1). Anyways it played burned ps2 games perfectly. Yet monday when I turned the system on I wasn;t looking dirctly at the screen but I did hear the ps2 sound (when it displays "playstation 2" on the screen) yet then it went to a blank screen. So I hit the reset button and this time all I got was a blank screen.

    The systems seems to boot, somewhat. My tv detects the power running from the ps2 to the video input, all the lights on the system power up correctly, and the system even seems to spin up and read the disc just for a second but then halts.

    I have a magic V chip.

    I just opened up my ps2 and noticed that 2 wires desided to let go from where they were soldered, the rst and Q wires on the diagrams. Can anyone tell me if that would cause the problem? (primarily the rstbecause I think I snagged the other wire when opening it back up). In case you are wondering why don;t he just re solder it? Well I have my soldering equipment lent out right now and won;t get it back til the weekend:S

    Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks

    The points are small.
    It takes skill to solder Ps2.
    Any number of things could have caused it
    What kind of wire did you use?
    Suggested are: 30 AWG kynar wire and 22 AWG wire for the ground and 3v3 connections.

    suggest getting a 15W soldering iron, no-corrosive flux, de-solder braid, and a 0.1mm iron tip.

    thanks but that's not the problem

    I already had my ps2 working earlier (since august) and all ofa sudden it stopped, and that is what my problem is. It's probable that i knocked those two connections loose when I opened the case up and removed the metal plate (there was some resistance) so my question to people is what could be the possible causes of my ps2 acting this way...

    Well honestly the only way to figure what could have caused it is to cancel out if the wires were or werenot loose before you opened your PS2... thats the first step. The only way to do that would be to resolder them and find out what happens. Only after that will you have a direction to go into.

    1.If the playstation boots properly then problem solved... it was the wire that came loose.

    2. If it still does not boot then you will have to check the rest of the PS mobo for solder that might have dripped or spead to a connector it should not be on.

    3. Make sure that you A/V connection is not faulty

    and so on...

    There are so many reasons that this could happen they are to much to go into, you would have to check all wires and the ps mobo.

    One thing though is that I have a magic 3 Modchip and I have to boot by holding the power till the blue light comes on to play PS1 games but they do work. Just letting you know if you didnt and something to try if you havn't.

    Well, good luck!
