the story :
I got a PS2 (PAL-V5) from someone(he bought it from "a guy"), already modded with an original messiah chip, saying it didn't read DVD's.
Checked it.. and it didn't... no original DVD (game or movie), no backups (tried 5 brands of DVD-R)
Opened her up, saw the worst mod job ever in history.
very very sloppy, using normal speakerwire to solder the points to the motherboard..
I thought, well that's gotta be it then..
So, I removed the chip and wires, cleaned everything up and put the machine together again, to see if it would read original stuff..
So I checked the DVD pot value and it's a whopping 1400 Ohms!!!!
I know it's got to be around 850-900 Ohms, but why in godsname would it be 1400!
Now, my question after this story is:
What will happen if I set the value to 850-900 again...
what can the consequences be
Will it fry my laser, damage something else.. what..
normally you would say " nothing" but seeing it is such an extreme offset to the normal value..
