Re: PSone - What kind of mod is this?

Also, where are the other wires going?? You didn't take a photo of the complete solder work. Really sorry. I'm afraid if i touch it, i might mess up something. So i decided to leave it there like it was. Yeah, it's a Video CD player board - the CL680 is one of the original single-chip VCD player de...

Re: PSone - What kind of mod is this?

Very curious. I agree with shadow on the hardware VCD player. That is the most likely modification that would warrant such an amount of logic in the early 2000s. That makes sense for me too. By the way i did swap the faulty laser with a working laser just to test this unit with games. It can read d...

Re: What type of modchip is this? (PU-8)

That looks like the OldCrow type which was used in the SCPH-100x series a lot. There's no chip number? Unfortunately the chip number can't be seen anymore. BTW i did swap the chip with my old crow inside scph-1002 and it refuse to boot disc. It just kicked me into memory card @ cd player screen (tr...

Re: [Diagram]SCPH-1000/3000 PU-7 MM3 Stealth Install

Hi Community, It started when I bought a SCPH-3000 from eBay. Because these Japanese Systems are not that common here in the EU. I just fell in love with the PU-7 Boards. Not only the SCPH-1000 runs with a PU-7 Mainboard, also the SCPH-3000 does, they just removed the S-Video. There was zero inform...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

Ps-x-change works good too. If you decide to give import game player another go, I can make an image of mine and patch it to NTSC-J and upload it somewhere. It's free software, so I have no issue with that. Ps-x-change was a commercial product (I have an original lol) but so can't link to that, but...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

I'm almost sure that these boot disks still have some sort of legal protection / copyright on them so nope, sorry. You can look for a region patcher though. They patch the license data to any region you want. You could, for example, patch your bootdisk to Japan region and be sure that that part is ...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

There is either a subtle error in the image you downloaded or you made a mistake burning it to CD. In any case, your PSX hangs while trying to parse the license data or the actual PSX executable. Would you suggest any other boot disk image other than importplayer that can guarantee working with Jap...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

Yes you can just burn the boot disc and boot it with your modchip. There's a free homebrew boot disc called importgameplayer which works wonders. You can download it here: http://www.consolecopyworld.com/psx/psx_utils_bootcd.shtml Any of those versions should do the trick, although the BootReplay i...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

Japanese consoles have an additional region check in the boot routine. On these consoles, you need either a boot disk, an expansion cart (Gameshark, etc), or a BIOS swap to PAL or NTSC-U. Those regions don't do the extra check, so for them, only a modchip is required. We should really have this inf...

Re: Question about PIC12F629 for PS1 Modchip

Japanese consoles do not directly start other region games, no matter if original or copy. Try to run a Japan region backup. If it works, your modchip works fine. Yes. The Japanese backups and original works fine. So that means my mochip works like what it should be? I thought modchip is supposed t...

Re: 240v on SCPH-1000 Power supply?

Hi guys, how can i convert the 100v power supply to 240v? I'm thinking to change the big black capacitor and the fuse. Will that work? Sorry. I really don't know much about this.

Re: [Hardware Mod] NTSC/PAL reference oscillator mod for PU-

The other nice thing is that now it runs at the correct speed in NTSC mode (a PAL console in NTSC mode with the original oscillator has line and frame rates that are about 1% slow - not much, but annoying once you know about it). It's more than annoying, if you play Japanese DDR games on an PAL con...

Thank you for a long explanation guys. Yeah, lesson learnt lol. Luckily i have extra PSU from a broken console and its rated with 250V. I will replace the capacitor for the broken PSU soon.
