Hey everyone,
I have been trying for a long time to find a way to hook up my Playstation 2 to my LCD monitor. I've used the LM1881 circuit but it didn't work due to the fact that it outputs c-sync instead of RGBHV. Then one day I found this thread (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=60996)that disables sync on green by removing Resistor 8299 (Slim model in my case) I have made a buffer circuit with vga output ( So my problem is that I have an SCPH-77004 Ps2 (GH-052-51 motherboard revision) and I cannot find any service manual online or any data sheet for the DAC but I found a pinout diagram for the CXM4015R in Bit built ps2 diagram (note that the H and V sync in this picture are inputs not outputs from DAC) ( ... Bottom.png). What I want are the location of R8299 and H & V sync pads on my board here are some pictures of my motherboard

I my case I use GBS8200 hook with component cable and install gbs-control to improve picture quality. For best picture quality, I just modded my ps2 30006 model to output RGBs when in 480p mode that disable sync on green by this tutorial

As far as i'm aware the CXM4000R and the later CXM4015R both have the same pinout, so if you check the earlier service manuals for any model from SCPH-39000 onwards you can see the DAC's pinout.

You should find that the sync outputs are on the following pins:-


These are from the CXM4000R official pinout. Also note that some PS2 board revisions have test points on these pins you can easily solder to, whilst others will require you to solder to the actual pins themselves.

For the location of R8299 your probably going to have to trace pin79 (CSYNC input) backwards until you locate the resistor (If your really stuck you could always lift pin79 away from the board, although thats obviously riskier)

Hope that helps :)
