In-Game Reset Kit for PlayStation - PyroESP

This Playstation Reset Kit contains the necessary hardware to install into your Sony Playstation Console to add a button configuration that will reset the playstation console.  This can be useful when using the system with a MODE, PSIO, or X-Station Optical Drive Emulator to get back to their menus, or just to reboot your games without having to use the consoles reset button.  

 WARNING: We consider this an Intermediate Level modification. Meaning only those with experience soldering and disassembling systems should attempt this modification. Stone Age Gamer, nor the manufacturer, will warranty modifications that are not done properly. Use at your own risk.  If you do not feel comfortable installing this Reset kit yourself we highly suggest using our install service which you can find here.

 Each KIT contains a Reset Chip + wires. 

The In-Game-Reset mod kit for Sony PlayStation allows you to reset the console from the comfort of
your own seat using the controller. It has the most benefits when used with Xstation, ,MODE, or PSIO ODE's as it allows resetting via a controller  button combination to get back to the game select menu.

The button combination for the controllers is:
L2 + R2 + SELECT + START, for a short reset pulse ( Restart to Game)
L2 + R2 + SELECT + CROSS, for a long reset pulse (Reset to MODE, Xstation Menu)
The lightgun combination is:
A + B + TRIGGER, for a long reset pulse

The installation requires soldering seven wires with no trace cuts.

Instructions manual showing installation schematics and button configurations can be found here

    Amazing add on for xStation

    Incredible complement to the ODE xStation. I recommend 100% its purchase. Very useful.

    Great product, ok installation process

    Posted by Mikael Provencher on Jul 25th 2022

    Great product but could have a better installation process if it was on a QSB design. Oddly, it won't reset like the reset button does and won't allow you to reset at certain time (ex. you can't do a long reset after a short one on the sony logo). NOT A REAL issue just a odd fact.

    Works great, and easy to install

    Works great with the Xstation ODE. At least on the PU-18 motherboard, it's also really close to the Xstation QSB install location, so it's pretty simple to do both mods at once.

    An XStation Must Have

    Posted by John S. on Apr 12th 2022

    I use this with an Xstation, and it works great. Now I can shuffle games without having to get up out the recliner :) Not all that hard to install if you have good eyes or a magnifying glass. No cutting or component removal, so easily removable.

    Easy to install with rookie soldering skills, works exactly as described. Great addition for any xStation owner.

    Great add on, but doesn't work for all

    Posted by Fred Jorge Silva de Souza on Feb 20th 2022

    It's good to know that there are people thinking about how to improve the experience on old consoles. Keep going guys!!
    I bought the reset chip for Playstation here at Stone Age Gamer in August 2021, but I only installed the kit yesterday, February 20, 2022. My Playstation board is a PU8, so I followed the installation steps. It was very simple and easy. Everything was connected as per the installation guide, but I can't reset to the beginning of the game.
    The resets are always for the game menu, regardless of the button combination I press. I reviewed the connections for conscience relief, but everything is ok.
    It makes resetting a lot easier and is a very useful feature, but the feature to reset the game and go back to its beginning doesn't work for me.

    Great add on for xStation owners

    Not too difficult to install. Take your time. A must own for xstation owners.

    Perfect kit for the Playstation

    Posted by Mike P. on Dec 9th 2021

    Straightforward and very simple to install. Absolute must with the xStation for resetting back to the menu (getting up is quite the hassle when you're cozy), or even just a stock Playstation when playing a game that benefits from easy resets.

    Absolute must with the XStation ODE

    Posted by Brooks Ilg on Sep 14th 2021

    This kit is an absolute must-buy for XStation or PSIO users. Reset to game or loader without needing to press the hardware reset means less wear and tear on my PlayStation, and I don't need to get up!

    The package came with all the wires necessary, and printed instructions for each button combination.

    I did end up using my own thicker (24 AWG) gauge wire for the GND and 3.5V lines, though this is a personal preference.

    Overall, packaging and product was great. Highly recommend!
