If you want to play backup games or import games on your PlayStation 2 Slim SCPH 90006, you might need to install a modchip on it. A modchip is a small device that modifies the console's firmware to bypass the region lock and copy protection. There are different types of modchips available, such as Modbo, Matrix, and Infinity. In this article, we will show you how to install a Modbo modchip on a PS2 Slim SCPH 90006 using a wiring diagram.
What You Need
A PS2 Slim SCPH 90006 console
A Modbo modchip (3.0, 4.0, 5.0, or 750)
A soldering iron and solder
Some wires (30 AWG solid core for most points, thicker for 5V and ground, thinner for A, B, G, H, and I pins)
A screwdriver and a pair of pliers
A multimeter (optional)
Step 1: Open the Console
Before you start soldering, you need to open the console and access the main board. To do this, you need to remove the screws on the bottom of the console and lift off the top cover. Be careful not to damage any wires or connectors inside. You can use a multimeter to check the continuity of the points before and after soldering.
Step 2: Locate the Points
The next step is to locate the points where you need to solder the wires from the modchip to the main board. You can use the wiring diagram below as a reference. The diagram shows the pinout of the modchip and the corresponding points on the main board. Note that there are multiple versions of the main board (GH-071-32, GH-071-42, GH-072-42) within the SCPH 90006 model number, so make sure you match your board number with the diagram.
Once you have located the points, you can start soldering the wires from the modchip to the main board. Here are some tips to help you with this process:
Use some flux and pre-tin the pins on the modchip and the points on the main board.
Use some tape or glue to secure the modchip in place.
Use some holes on the board to route wires through.
Keep the wires as short as possible and avoid crossing them.
Solder one wire at a time and check for any shorts or bridges.
Be careful not to damage any components or traces on the main board.
Step 4: Test the Modchip
After you have soldered all the wires, you can test if the modchip is working properly. To do this, you need to reassemble the console and plug it in. Then, you can try to boot up a backup game or an import game using a swap disc or a memory card exploit. If everything works fine, congratulations! You have successfully installed a modchip on your PS2 Slim SCPH 90006. If not, you might need to check your soldering or try a different modchip.
