Portable PS1

Post by Bmxer32 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 2:39 pm

Hello I have been around this forum for a while now and have found lots of helpful info for my portable. Well I started this portable almost a year ago but I got frustrated and ended up throwing it in my attic for about 3/4 of the year. About a month ago I started working on it again and finally got everything to work on it. Now it isn't completely portable because I decided since this was my first project I didnt want to go to extreme. It still runs on the wall adapter and doesnt have batteries.

I do have 1 problem though. Up until about a day ago everything worked but yesterday I desoldered the power switch from the board and it looks like I desolder the top left corner to much and now I cant get solder to stick in it. Is there anyway I could fix this. See pic below to see what I mean.

After I figure out how to fix that problem I am pretty much done with it except for a little bit more wiring and putting it all together. Anyways here is what I have.

Please let me know what you think.

^ ^ ^ ^ Very nice.

(If you can find some) Try applying rosin/flux to it, this will help with soldering.
Alt: you could use pot polish to try and clean up the surface first, and wait an extra minute to make certain that your iron is hot.

I went out and bought the rosin/flux and the solder still will not stay in. In the hole it looks like it is just the circuit board and nothing else for the solder to adherer to. Is the any other way to bypass this to make the ps1 always on. On the plus side I did find an old battery out of a portable dvd player I will be using. Please help.

Why not use the other side?

You could scrape off the varnish on the trace that leads to that hole and solder to that. Electrically it is the same wire.
