Since i receive help with my motherboard issue i can finaly continue with my project and share with you all.
This is my second ps2 portable first one was quite big becouse i didnt trimm the motherboard and leave much space to see if im able to create portable ps2.Successfuly everything was working well until my daughter drag it from my desk and it smashed to the flor. Hopefully the motherboard,lcd and other components were intact besides the case.I use some duct tape and glue to keep it together and play on hehe.After that incident i was reading the trimming guide and decide to try.I use almost all of the components from the first ps2, designed new case and 3d printed and other parts for it.For the front panel i will use acrilic plate

the comparison of my portables
Work in progres but i am happy with the resoults so far.

OK a little update
Last night was quite busy night and made some progress.Most of parts were wired still need to find place for the audio board becouse i thought it could fit above the usb but unfortunately not.Maybe i will desolder the potenciometer and try then. Tonight i will find out maybe i will be able to connect the two parts of the console and glue everything together.

Based on the pictures you posted previously, it looks like some of your controller wiring might be shorting together when you close the case and cram everything together. Some if the pics get a little blurry when zoomed in so I cannot tell for sure, but there seems to be an excess of exposed wire around your solder connections to the PS2 motherboard for the controller and memory card wires.

You got some nice memes there, sir!

Reminds me on myself, like the display in my ps2p is from my n64p. I was so unhappy with it, i killed it quick, hard and slowly salvaged it over time. >:)

Anyways, thanks for sharing! Hope to see some more from you soon ;-)

// lol - i just noticed that i forgot to post this yesterday :D

Wow! This looks great! Those speaker holes can be fixed, but that does not mean that it is an incredible console. Keep it up!

hello everybody!
Finally i have finished my ps2 portable.I have tried to find the couse of controller port issue but with no effort so i decide to drop it and buy new motherboard and controller.In the 2 ROUND i have trimmed and wired motherboard in the same way by this time i pay more attention to soldering and to avoid any shorts.Every thing end up working fine exept the fan that is spining at ful rate.Its quite noisy but im shure that it will not overheat.In the future i will print the covers for the speakers and some kind part to improve the air circulation.The heat inside causes paint bubles what can be seen in the pictures.I have tested it for a while and despite the small things im very happy with the finall result.Thanks for the help during work to complete my project CHEERS
