Hello,

A customer from Mexico contacted me since he had a faulty V5-5500 AGP #65HRHE what shows artefacts (horizontal lines).


Front Card


Rear Card



SUMMARY - 29/01/2020


Card looks really bend, and PCB color is too much green dark. It means card was too much exposed at reworks heat.





Is used a cleaner pads but it looks as the cleaner is too much agressive and 'copper vanished per zones' - perhaps too much strong for using on pads...


Once I started to test card, yes, card has vertical lines artefacts present:







I will start soon to fix it.

[30/01/2020] - UPDATE

If errors shows up when card boots up, it means problem comes from master VSA100 I/O TSOPS. Once I tested tsop sdram and I detected what tsop was causing the problems. I started to reemplace it for a new one and voila... Smile

ORIGINAL STATED



UNSOLDERING BAD TSOP


REEMPLACED FOR NEW ONE


Once reemplaced faulty tsop and turn to test the card runing at 4xFSAA Quake 3 and 3DMark2001SE and everything worked fine. Smile Not more vertical lines. Yeaaahhhh!
















I was glad to see SLAVE chip was not damaged and SLI function worked fine.

Regards,
Oscar.

I will check- I dont own stock for small smd condensator. Anyway, I use a v5 as donant but the card is running out of stock on smd components ... LoL Anyway I will check it and let you know but dont worry since such smd compornt are not important for the function.

Regards,
Oscar.
