PS2 No Video No Sound

Postby playgoods » Fri Feb 28, 2014 2:15 pm

I've had many many of these over the years come into my shop. I've always said they are not worth repairing as the main board is faulty.
Now that I have a BGA rework station I'm curios to find out the problem.

The usual is fine. Fuses etc
TV Will switch to a black screen only with no sound.
I have reflowed the south bridge the emotion engine and the graphics synthesiser.

Anyone have more insight into this fault?

It must be lead free in the PS2 slims. Solder only melting at 220c. The Ee chip gets very hot within 10s. So just waiting for 0.76mm balls so I can replace it..

I doubt it's the av connector as it looks good. Also in everyone that I have had like this there is no video or audio.

Hi playgoods,

Got a PS2 with the exact same issue. Its a GH-040-12. Were you ever able to resolve this issue. tried reflowing the Emotion Engine but nothing changed. It still acts like a PS3 with GLOD.

I never spent much time on this as ps2's have stopped coming in for repairs. I always wanted to try a donor working board to figure it out. Over the years I've had hundreds with this fault.

Use "Freeze spray" and try to cool down the FLASH chip and then turn the console on.
FLASH is Macronix chip near CXD2955 on the following picture:
***click***

I didn't try this, but I read somewhere that this chip goes bad, and it "wakes up" when it is very cold.
