How to install the Philips CDi Timekeeper chip
Start striping out your CDi, by removing the four screws located on the top of the console. Two under the Video Interactive cartidge and two into the CD bay.
Then pull gently the top cap to reveal the inner of the CDi. First layer the aluminum cap. You have to pull it from the edges to remove it(do it carefully and watch for some small cables on the upper right side of the console,these are the cables that conect the cd rom to the motherboard)
This is the motherboard of the CDi 450 model. Take it off completly and place it beside you. After that ,you have to remove the motherboard as well from the console by removing the CD rom unit(very easy it rests on two rubber pads, do it carefully and do not touch the lense). Gently lift it up and take it to your hands.
At the bottom left side of the motherboard you can see the Timekeeper chip.(this is the newly installed chip of my CDi 450). Turn the motherboard around and start melting the solder from the chip tips and sucking it with the solder sucker(here you need some knowledge of electronics,it is not easy to do). Be carefull the rest of the motherboard.
