Hi everyone, new member here
I'm not familiar with the Sony Playstation consoles but I found a SCPH-9002 in the garbage and have been trying to salvage it and give it to some kid in my neighborhood.
As I waited for the video cable to arrive, I looked for how to play copied games like my friends would when we were teens, that's how I found this thread (thank you to all of you for sharing your knowledge for free). Since I had some Pro Minis with me, I opened the console, brushed the dust away and installed the chip to the PU-23 board.
The cable arrived, I burned Wipeout with Imgburn at the lowest speed (downloaded from here
), and tried it. Unfortunately the booting sequence went straight to the Menu
. I googled how to calibrate the laser, soldered a couple of leads to the trimming potentiometer and, with the help of a multiplier, adjusted the resistance in very low increments to try to get an Audio CD to be deteccted (I dont have original games). I got it to go to this screen
but after a couple of test reboots the cd stop being recognized again. When I tested with the copied game, I got it to this screen
but it didnt go further than this, then I rebooted and it was not recognized anymore.
Is this a problem with the laser or with my installation of the modchip? Should I try with an original game or get a replacement KSM-440AEM from ebay?
