HTML worked in the sigs, but not anymore... I think i had a capacitor backwards. I still have my "amp on a chip"s, but I'm not into all the soldering and stuff anymore. No place to do it like my old place did...

"amp on a chip" suck! I bought two, and had complete working prototypes. Only draw back... Distortion and hiss! i also used the double GAIN though, where you use a resistor and capactor to double the GAIN from like 24dB to 46db or something like that. It drove a speaker pretty well, except for the "...

Sweet... I've witnessed that light effect myself. If you trim the little lip around the lid a little, the light will seap through better. Just make sure you keep the lip for the lid clip. If you are completely lost with that, I can explain better.

I was just playing by telling you to buy a PS2 becuase i just knew for some reason you would say what you did. Anyway... I have uploaded the pic of the fuses... Here you go. ...

Try the Romeo mod, if its V9 or V10... Looks like it fromt he pic. anyway, what you do is lift the leg of an IC, and link that to +5v... Search for it and find the tutorial. Easy mod, brings most PS2's back to life... If only I new that *before* I sold mine on ebay... :roll:
