SCPH-7502 and multiple laser troubleshooting frustration

Hi there, I have a SCPH-7502 fitted with a Chinese laser assembly, and it attempts, but is not successful in getting to 2x speed. (The drive spins up, stops for a moment, retries, and then stops spinning completely; noises sound typical.) At this point I'm questioning both the console and the laser ...

[WTB] Screws!

Hi all, Happy New Year! I've been encountering an increasingly disturbing amount of PS1s on eBay with missing (or sometimes none at all) screws, and was looking at purchasing replacements, (ideally original ones) before refurbishment and resale. All kinds: black cabinet screws, goldy-coloured interi...

Re: Weird colours on PAL (demodded) SCPH-1002

Hi Shendo, I was figuring as much (at least on the 9002) that this mod had been performed, but when looking at the 1002 I didn't remove an oscillator/xtal; just the mod chip itself. That's (I guess) why there I noticed evidence something had been soldered to the CXA1645 in the past, but was then rem...

Re: Weird colours on PAL (demodded) SCPH-1002

So, a quick update: The seller offered up both a SCPH-1002 and a SCPH-9002 in the same auction. The 9002 was working as intended before I removed its mod, but after doing so started exhibiting the exact same colour issue as the 1002. Turns out that pin 157 on the GPU of the 9002 (unintentional rhyme...

Re: Weird colours on PAL (demodded) SCPH-1002

Hi Shendo, thanks for your reply. I just attempted to capture a direct feed from the console itself - while I can view it on the TV just fine, the signal itself is bad enough that the capture card can't lock onto the signal. That said, the colours definitely are presented as captured, with no interf...

Weird colours on PAL (demodded) SCPH-1002

Hi everyone, I was hoping you might be able to help me diagnose just what's going on here, in terms of video output. The seller described the fault as 'black and white' - but that logo looks like a hue shift more than anything else. According to the seller on eBay, the issue was present with the mod...
