It's been a while but I have now added a switch that can turn on and off wall power to the PS2! Now those dam batteries won't go dying on me quite so fast. I now need help on how to make my new monitor run at 5v.
The PS2 won't glow red anymore with this one. It's like the batteries aren't working. They are hooked up correctly but will not charge either. I don't know what's wrong.
EDIT: I found the issue, the batteries seemed to be broken because they wouldn't be detected by the PS2 as a power source and...
Cool as thanks for this info! The PS2 79002 is currently shipping to my house, so I will test it out and see if it works when it arrives.
One other thing, I need a new screen because I broke it. Could you recommend me one?
No I have not. There are no issues with the 77000 model I have (except the screen), but the 79002 model won't boot at all. Maybe I should just focus on getting the 77000 model to work first. I need to somehow get 8.4v total to power it. I have heard that there is no voltage drop in that model. I...
Ok I have it and have tested it without any modification. It won't boot at all. It did say FreeMCBoot only once and now it doesn't anymore. I have tried booting it without FreeMCBoot, and with the disk drive in and out. Any help?
I'm just going off what I've heard. 7700x series have no volatage drop like the 7900x series do so that's why I recently bought one. It should have arrived today but the courier van never showed up to pick up the package. Once it arrives I'll just reattach the batteries to that PS2 instead.
I've cut most of it up so I'm pretty sure it's stuffed, may have to get a new one at this point and actually test to see if it works. Also batteries, do I need two 4.2v batteries? The 7700x series does not have a voltage drop like the 7900x series does. I have two 3.7v batteries that would work...
I never tried it in the first place, I think it may be broken. I ripped off three parts on it because of the 5v mod. I may have done it wrong. The connections on the PS2 are correct as I followed the trimming guide.
