Advice Needed - After Stuff Up
Advice Needed - After Stuff Up –
On incorrect advice I have been left in this situation.
Installed a H20 Mod (v12) - all was fine
Applied fix by cutting track and adding resistor however I believed the resistor was incorrect but was told it would be fine by the supplier of the chip i purchased.
Resistor was a 561 Ohm
The PS2 Resistor Value = '683' so based on this am i correct that i should have used a 2.0k Ohm resistor?
The DVD Drive will not spin
The situation I am left with is i have removed the chip, resistor and repaired the cut track. Still no luck
Focus Coil = 4.0 Ohms
Tracking Coil = 26.97k
From this i would assume that the laser has been damaged. Is it the incorrect resistor value that has caused the damage?
If I purchase a new laser to begin with without modchip is this likely to fix the spinning problem?
Or am I best to cut my loses and buy a new machine?
The cost of a new machine here is $230.00 AUD = $173.893 USD
Im in Australia if any body can recommend best place for price and postage.
Thanks for your help in advance.
