advise for a faulty v9
advise for a faulty v9 –
Got a v9 and coil #2 meassure only 2.4ohm.
1. Will it be sufficient to just replace the LA in this case? Or the laser is faulty too?
2. If I only replace the laser with a new one, could this cause damage to the newly installed laser (not replacing LA)?
The lasers had it and needs to be replaced - any maybe the LA as well.
Does the tray eject / laser head move / lens focus?
Ok, I'll check this. If it does eject etc does it mean the LA is still working?
And if I was replacing the laser and the LA is fried, would it cause any damage to the new laser?
The LA control the ejecting and the laser sled so if both are ok it should be fine. You'd better do the romeo mod though. Its possible that a damaged LA could fry your new laser. Check the LA for pins to ground - and check the fuse next to the LA. If all are ok it "should" be safe to replace the laser only. Then again, it might not
Finally got around (and time) to fix this console now..
Here is what I did:
eject was working fine, and also the laser was moving and trying to focus so I just did the romeo and replaced the laser as you adviced.
But it was not enough, coils were fine after this but it wouldnt read anything.
So I had to replace the LA aswell. Now everything is OK again.
Thanks for your help on this. Much appreciated! cheers
