It's perfectly fine in both pictures. An obvious example of using Composite to create more shades.
Scart RGB has like 5 times the bandwidth, so...
My guess as well.
There's at least the book type to go by.
Yeah, that may be so, but we have a comparison: All the older PSX models from before the PSOne.
Out of all the early capacitor failures, most...
Heh, I had a few of those PSOne as well.
I don't think these consoles saw that much usage, so it's fair to assume their caps are of lower quality.
That's some good advice.
I'd add that there are different stresses to these caps, depending on what their purpose is.
In earlier consoles, the...
It's an interesting and rare glitch for sure.
I'll go with a minute fault on the GTE silicon, maybe a permanently stuck gate on an instruction...
Good luck with the rest, you'll succeed! :)
Near C46, that looks like a water damaged area. Are there traces on the underside eaten away?
On the 5660, pins 157/156 are bridged, as well as...
+1 for the video coupling caps. Easy repair :)
It's hard to believe someone designed an amplifier board to power a short cut.
There must be some mistake somewhere.
Input can stay grounded, output should be floating. If the chip is still working, that is ;p
@Somechump: Is the HDMI chip near the HDMI output a "MacroSilicon MS9282" by chance?
The corrupted data is the CRC checksum for a sector (or an amount of them, not sure).
If you burn an iso, your burner creates new CRC for the...
It's obviously been opened before, but may have never been used, or used only once.
If that's what you're looking for?
Yeah, super difficult.
Capture and decode CD data to recognize the game (might build a PSIO at this point!), look for the key reading routine...
If Composite worked on a 1Chip, I wouldn't worry about RGB. The signals must be fine when they get encoded into Composite, and there isn't much to...
When you had the drive disassembled, did you look at the rails wear and tear?
This is the number 1 problem with all PSX drives, even the newer...
Wow, I didn't expect that!
The console is fine then. It'd be nice to know what the seller tried to produce that picture :p
The Starfox could be...
Well, I know how this'll turn out. Please don't throw the mainboard away, the sound chip is still working and can replace a dead one in another 1Chip.
