    Question Project and advice on a portable model scph 79004

    The standard cut runs through the LAN port, but if you'd like to keep it intact, or at least keep the pad holes intact, you can just modify the cut to go around it. You may need to reroute the 5 volts it uses, but that's easy to do, you just need to run a wire.

    Question Project and advice on a portable model scph 79004

    OKAY!!! Lets see if I can do this in numerical order: 1) The screen resolution you've selected is a little unusual, but should work, do you have a particular model in mind? 2) Batteries designated 18650 are just a cylindrical version of a lithium polymer (lipo) battery, the alternative being a...

    So when it comes to building a buck converter, is it the size of the the inductor that determines how much energy it produces?

    Question PS2 SSD HDD in a portable

    Ever consider the somewhat controversial HD Pro method? https://westingames.diytrade.com/sdp/1000564/4/pd/5991748-2085210/HD_Combo_Pro_HDLoader_System_for_PS2_Slim_SCPH-90.html It works by loading games in BIOS mode using some apparently pretty clever software tricks. The speed is probably on...

    Question PS2 SSD HDD in a portable

    I can confirm that it is indeed possible to use a SATA SSD through a bridge IC to load games through OPL, I was however never able to make this work consistently. All the games appeared in the loader, but they almost always failed to load properly. I haven't put any work into it for some time...

    Question Trace guide for PS2 Slim ZIF connector

    Well the fact that there's a modchip on there is fortunate, because it actually uses the reset switch track So what I would recommend you do is solder a momentary switch between that point on the modchip, or on the board where it connects, and GND, this will facilitate the reset function. Send...

    Question Battery powering a PS2

    It should be safe, however I too think you should use a 7900x model, as it has been all but completely figured out by the devoted members here, and it can be made remarkably small as a result, @Gman is the defacto PS2 board trimming vet here, in fact he wrote the Compendium!! Do see if you can...

    Question Battery powering a PS2

    So there are a few things to consider first: Are you using the disc drive or loading from USB and/or ETH? That's actually a big one because it will determine how few cells, and how low of a voltage you can use. The only components that seem to directly use the 8.5 volt rail are the disc drive...

    I want to be able to do it within the system software, that same way you control the brightness on your phone screen (it basically is a phone screen). The backlight LED's brightness seems to depend on where to voltage is between 3.3 and 5 volts.
