PlayStation 1 scph-5502 no video or sound

Postby Dominator_32 » Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:19 am

I'm new to thus forum but I got this PlayStation 1 for parts but I want to get it working. I found it had two mod chips installed. One was a pic micro controller making the console region free but the other is a mystery and was connected to the RGB chip and sourounding points on the board. I don't know if that's the problem but it could be. The PlayStation powers on with the green light and the laser and motor will move but the screen is black. I don't mean there is no signal, I mean actually black with no sound. I removed both mods and set everything back to how it was factory and checked/ re-soldered the video output conection and nothing has changed. Any ideas and experience would be very appreciated.
Thank you.

im not sure if anyone here would be able to help you were a small comunity and i dont think we have many hardware modding guys best i could advise is to try out a ps1 oriented forum or a forum dedicated to console modding

but for a start id recomend getting rid of everything you dont need so take out the mod chip and take out the weird rgb board and see what happens
