Long story short I made a thread last year that a chipped PS2 I bought doesn't play PS1 games (not even legit ones, unless I turn the modchip off), despite pretty much all attempts at activating PS1 mode (double resets, stuff like that). I got a chipped PS1 to compensate but that's being a bit of a jerk lately and I require a SCART cable with it which means I can only play it on one TV which sucks. So I finally got the courage to rip open the PS2 completely and take photos so I can hopefully get it to play PS1 games once and for all. The modchip is a Mars II, and it has "M320-L8" on it. I can't find exact photos of the exact same one, nor am I knowledgeable at all that this should look like other Mars photos. I guess I'm wondering if anyone immediately notices something off: Full-photo: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0012.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0013.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0005.jpg.html Zoom in of the chip: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0014.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0016.jpg.html Zoom in of top part: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0011.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0019.jpg.html (this is rotated) Zoom in of the left part: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0009.jpg.html (w/ the chip itself) http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0006.jpg.html Zoom in of right part: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0008.jpg.html Zoom in of the top/right thing: http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0010.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0018.jpg.html http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0007.jpg.html The back (the top zoom-in, the left set of wires, goes through the board): http://s1237.photobucket.com/user/Yeah93/media/Photo-0020.jpg.html I'll take more if need be, I don't really have access to a that good a camera though. FWIW it plays NTSC, and back up PS2 games perfectly, and I don't need a SCART cable for it to show up in colour.
