    I have a v7 ps2 and i tried to install a duo 2 se, i've installed one before on a v7 also. But this time when i put it all back together it doesnt work, at first i got the green and blue lights but it made a scary noise when i turned it on and it wouldnt eject and there was no audio or video, so i opened it up and a wire came loose off the chip so i put it back on and same thing so i remove all the wires from the chip and from the board and tried it again and it doesnt work either, all i get now is the red reset light only and neither button works and no audio/video, but i think my ribbon is damaged because if i jiggle it around the red light will go on/off, i've opened it up several times to make sure the ribbon was in securely also, any ideas what would casue this or how I can fix this anyone? Please :(

    sorry i didnt read your message before and i dont know why anybody helped thid time
    Anywaysthe same happened to me i had a V7 with a duo2 "professionally" installed by one of my man's homeboy.
    it worked fine for about 6 months it feel to the floor several times i fixed it (actually i just adjust the disc try but one day my brother was playing a very bad backup made by him.
    and it just didnt worked anymore we couldnt eject the disc try and
    There are 2 possibilities one the ribbon is damaged or two
    you just burned up your Ps2 thats what they told me when i went with really professionals to get it fixed up.

    You have a short in your bios and/or a damaged ribbon cable.

    borrow yourself a multimeter and check for continuity between bios pins. That is, switch it to impedance setting, and test pins next to each other for a short.
