PlayStation hangs at logo when PSIO is unplugged

Post by jlancaster86 » June 1st, 2019, 7:25 pm

I installed my switchboard onto my PU-18 board today, and I'm guessing I've got a bad connection somewhere. The PSIO itself seems to work just fine, but when I remove it from the console, the PlayStation just hangs at the logo screen and won't boot any discs.

Is it obvious to anybody which connection could be at fault? The CI and CE connections gave me the most trouble, so I'm guessing it's one of those.

Grab your multimeter and find out. ;-)

I think the spindle spinning while playing from the SD card is normal behavior, but maybe Matt can confirm and explain why.

Yeah, the spindle spinning is normal operation. The 'Systems Manual' explains that.

"To boot your original PlayStation format ‘black’ CD-ROM games, open the PlayStation drive door, place
your game disc into the PlayStation drive and close the drive door. As long as you’re not in ‘USB
Mode’, you may then go ahead and press the ‘Circle ( )’ [Load CD] button. Your game will now boot as
if the PSIO cartridge were never installed. Note that your CD-ROM will only boot if the Switch Board
has been installed. Also note that should booting from a CD-ROM fail, you must reset your PlayStation.
Keep in mind that when a disc is in the CD-ROM drive, the disc will be kept in an idle state (IE: the disc
will be ‘free spinning’ at 1x speed)."

from the manual. Is this the answer?!

That's correct.
