bridged dead ps13 dvd no read
bridged dead ps13 dvd no read –
I have searched this forum for my problem but could not find a solution.
The shop I work for gave me a dead v7 to fix. The problem was that the discs did not spin, which I simply fixed by bridging PS13 which was dead. the area around ps13 and the row of resistors in front to the left of it had a colour which showed that the area had been really hot, darker that the rest of the board. Allso all resistors show 0 ohm.
Everything seemed to work fine for a few hours but all of a sudden dvds could not be read anymore.
I have checked the laser coils and they are ok. Once the ps2 even put itself into standby while trying to read a dvd. And operations like eject seems to go slow..
Does anyone know what should be replaced? I have checked the BA5 chip, and its ok. I dunno how to check the other BA though.
I somehow have the feeling that the whole system recieves too litle power...
The fact that the resistors show zero means that some thing must be shorting across them some where - which would explain a little why the station gets hot and why it shuts itself down.
Are you sure you shorted the right place?
Check for dead capacitors as these short when they die - more often than not.
Check for dead diodes also as this may cause the short you are seeing...
apart from that - good luck... you are possibly going to need it
Thanks for your reply ShadowKnyght, searching this forum I can see that this kind of problem often leads folks to become one of "those" people.
However this station is really not my responsibility, since I am only to repair it if I can for this shop keeper that I sometimes help.
I did bridge the right point i.e the ps13 fuse...damn.. if I should have replaced it instead of bridging it, maybe it would have blown and caused me to look for other faults, when it was still time..
I am gonna look for shorts on capacitors and diodes.. I did allready, but since the area is full of vias I will have to check in other places than the imideate fuse area around the regulator IC I guess.
never bridge fuses , replace them cause they blow for a reason and by bridging u can kill ur ps2
too bad that I was to lazy to take the bus from the suburbs to the city to buy a fuse..
huh my PC power supply just killed itself last night and I opened it up to find the fuse blown...
ever seen what happens to a 6A fuse on 240V when something is wrong with the PSU??
The replacement fuse I put in exploded in a red glowing flash and bit of glass and metal went every where... I think I will leave it alone and get a new one!
Now if I had just bridges the the fuse holder.... kaboom....
lol that sucks i think mine is going out also it makes weird sounds
