Hi!, I know this shouldnt be in a ps2 forum, but i need help on this. I recently modded a ps1 and upon completeing the mod reassembled it, hooked it up to the tv, powered on and nothing. (i bought the chip from here: http://www.mod-chip.bz/catalog/steal...chip-p-41.html) here is the installation diagrams: http://www.mod-chip.bz/Playstation/installe.html. screen flicks when power is turned on or off and the tv seems to be getting a sync signal. opened the case checked all my wireing, found id read the wrong wireing scheme but with only one wire diffrent. (i'd wired it for the stelth2 diagram instaead of the stelth ps1)
tested again, did exactly the same as before. disconnected the power supply from the mainboard, tested, 3.3v line @ 3.45v, 7.6v line @ 7.9v. making a strange sparking sound. tested the 3.3v power wire to the modchip, 0v??! found a blown surface mount fuse @.75a wired a 0.5a fuse across its terminals. 3.3v @ modchip power pin. reassembled, tested black screen , no sound. removed power supply, powered on, made a sparking noise, then died. no power to any pin, main fuse blown.
so my question is, if i build a new power supply, will the main board work, or is it fried?
Thanks for any help.
