As a novice solderer, thought I would give this a try but between my shaky hands, only having desoldering braid to remove mistakes, and limited diagnostics I've given up installing this chip and will just buy pre-modded. The chip would be better if it had dividers where you solder the sides of a single hole and alignment printings on the PCB. Got the solid red light (never blinked or changed color) and holding start on power up with an original disc never showed anything. Think I know which point failed, but was unable to remove the solder because of this wireless design I should have just used wires. A guide for testing continuity of each solder point would have helped. I could only assume I got power and ground correct. Also pretty confident I adjusted the laser pot correctly, using a multimeter to check the ohms resistance (ohms guidance varies widely).
Plus side is I can still play original games so it feels like my loss is minimal, especially considering how affordable the chip is.
I was hoping to take advantage of the hole-thru chip design but the fit is less than ideal and resulted in an unwanted bridge. This is my fault however for attempting to solder this way when I should have just used wires once I saw it didn't line up exactly correct. Once installed correctly, backups boot immediately, LEDs indicate correct installation which is very handy!
Rewelacja, czip dojechał cały i sprawny. Już zamontowany w konsoli. Gorąco polecam ten sklep.
