    Hi,

    I just bought two different component cables for PS2 and with both I get a pinkish image. TV works OK with other component sources. My PS2 has been modded a long time ago and I don't know which chip has been mounted back then. I have read that this could be caused by the modchip and that I should open the console and cut the RGB fix wire. I have tried it but can't figure out which one is it (I have attached two pictures of my motherboard).

    Anyone who can help me? Thanks in advance.

    never heard of this problem, but I know that component cables, if they're in incorrectly, will cause different colors/hues.

    I'm not sure if all modships do this, but the matrix infinity (what I have) will display the matrix logo (maybe version as well) when you turn on the system as well as when you boot a ps2 game. there's a button combination to enter its config, but I can't recall what it is.

    Did you set YPbPr output in menu of PS2?

    Unfortunately my modchip doesn't show any logo during boot...

    Can you remove that red tape carefully, to check what modchip sits there? But if you feel that you can't do this without issues, then don't do this. Remember that later you need to place that tape again there.

    By the pictures you are showing, i am guessing you have a Messiah Modchip. I have one too on my 30004R, and the pink hue has nothing to do with the modchip itself.

    But i know what you mean, as i am gaming on a ASUS VX247 Monitor, my only choice for legacy input, its HDMI,so i am forced to use one of thoes cheap @rse PS2 2 HDMI Convertors, which when connected, they do display a pink hue, while with normal component cables, they display a clean 576p signal, no pink hue or any of that stuff.

    Ive tested 2 30004Rs (OEM and Modded) and a 39004 (OEM), and to go beyond, ive even hooked it up to a 2104A Slim and a CECHC04 PlayStation3, and the results were the same pink hue to the image.

    My final take, its a component cable issue, and quality, you see not all component cables have the same build quality into it, some of them are well made, while others are just pure turd, the important thing specialy on PS2,its to choose your cables very carefully :)

    Your chip is Matrix DNS-1004 (MX-L) (not sure that clone or original).

    So You have applied green fix:

    Removing that one cable that is not connected to chip should resolve your issue. But i suggest to first cut it in a half and test before desoldering. Mostly because i found on your picture that you have also shortcut on NTSC/PAL selector point, looks like your console is forced to PAL display.

    This point on your PS2 is soldered to ground.

    That's what you need to fix for now. Maybe more.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I have attached a new picture, could you please check if the cable I have circled in yellow is the right one?
    Btw, does cutting that cable has other consequences apart, I hope, solving my color problems?

    Yes that correct cable. Cutting it can make DVD video screen green.
