I'm not sure about that one. Haven't been doing research on that but I've heard of people applying summ0ne's fix to v13 and still working great. Maybe summ0ne can shed some light.
you only need apply the summone to v12 units. The v13/v14 has laser protection built into the board. Further protection could cause problems with disc reading in the future and can inhibit firmware upgrading.
I know that the v13+ have the new laser protection from Sony but you can never be too safe was the idea I had. Hmmm works fine with some of the ones I worked with. Thanks for the info though.
I installed a Comsoft v4 fix in a V13 and laser died after 8 days, did not melt like v12 just won't read DVD. Installed new laser and removed v4 fix and no problems in a month
it is a waist of time and $ to use a fix on the v13 and above . this has been proved on this board some time ago . i have been doing v13s for months with out a fix and not 1 problem ..
