    I have 2 problems.

    #1 I have a magic 3 chip w/ V7 board and I was soldering point D on the back side of the board and the copper plate came off. I tried to put my ps2 together but the first time I turned it on I hit eject and the tray came out then went back in I all I get is the blue led blinking and the green led, no audio or video. I was wondering if there is some how I could fix this by soldering the points else where.

    # 2 I order a magic 3 from ps2backupss and it was too hard so I got clips from mod-chip.ca and I got everything worked except ps2 cd and dvd backups. I thought something was wrong with the L clip so I tried sodering and the copper plate came off and the ps2 won't turn on. I think I will have get a new version 7 motherboard. I was wondering where is the best place to get one and if they could install my mod chip or a new one and send it to me.

    p.s. Anyone in Central Illinois like Peoria to install the chip

    p.p.s. Do you think I could sell my motherboard to someone who sells the parts of the motherboard.

    I just did the same type of thing on a v5 board to the 3.3v on a dms3 install. I was wondering if there was an alternate source of +3.3v on a v5 board. Mine still works fine with chip disconnected. Anyone know someone who can fix these points on the mboard?

    Anyone in Central Illionis...

    No but here are a couple in Chicago. I've had and heard only very good things about both.


    There are few others but I think they are on the east and west coast. Those are probably your best bet.

    as far as the traces, thats what you burnt off, I think your systems are totaly fried. I had a friend do this to his "c" connection and I tried everything under the sun to repair it. There was nothing that could be done. It was eventully junked and sold on ebay as a broken system for $70.

    Not saying it's impossible but I haven't seen or heard of recooping from a burnt trace. You kind of need them. LOL

    Good Luck!
