thx for the fast awnser
u seam 2 know much about ps2s with laser issues could u take a look at my other post? (i got a v9 that reads cds but no dvds at all iv tryed "playing" with the pots but it doesnt seam 2 effect it at all any idea what it could b? i can see the red laser so it should b fine, the laser diod that is)
Weeb: did you meassure the coils ? Maybe they are damaged. When a PS2 is dropped mechanical problems with the drive itself may also appear. So first I'd try with another drive if that works, then the PS2 drive is fault, then you can play with it. Otherwise the motherboard is also damaged. I think the board is fine anyway.
the moderboard was a bit bent cuz of 1 peice of the metal that covers it got bent but i dont think the mobo sustained any dmg
the whole tray is kinda destroyed i basiclly got JUST the laser and taped the little switch so that the ps2 thinks its closed all the time
i havent messured the coils im finding it hard 2 measure across those small legs and would like some alt points or info on how 2 get the casing of the laser
(can it b a coil problem if cds work but not dvds?)
Yes, there are alternative points to meassure coils. Look at the attached picture:
As I said, the mechanical damages also can cause the problem when trying to read DVD's.
maybe im a big n00b or u forgot 2 attach the file/somethng went wrong on the way cant find the attachment...
looks the attach file function does not work for me, he he... sent you a pm.
Thanks Stephen for your help!I hope that SONY will make better consoles in the future without problems.We all want to earn some money from mods!
Yes, but I have to note that it took about 3 months that anyone released anything about this problem. If I remember correctly before the Ripp*r guys' post everyone said that it's CLEARLY an "installer error" and "blame yourself". This is why many of us say the PS2 scene is dead, well it's just a dirty bussines ($ony + mod "developers", mod cloners and so on... look sometimes none knows what a clone really is, who sells original and who sells clone and well, roumors about M2 Team, Charlie's "disappear"... ) And yes I also was wrong when attacked the mod developers THAT hard blaming the problem mostly on them, but hell to be honest, I have never trusted $ony hardware that much. (compared to the Xbox, which is a newcomer in the console (+hardware) word but causes 1/10 problem) So, that's sure, I can't avoid from PS2, but Sony will never be a respected brand of mine, that's sure.
I think the death rate is somewhere between 3-15 percent anyway that deppends on the USAGE and on the batch one bought the PS2 from. As it's clear that people with Princo DVD-R can burn out anything that has an LA inside, hehehe...
I have a messiah 2 1.33 pro and its real.... i modded it in a v9 was a broadband pack...after install worked perfectl first try nothing else wrong.... and i tryed 3 more times before putting it together.... after putting it to gether worked perfectly loaded ps1 ps2 backups originals everything...
now whikle playing a game the damn thing just clicks wont load orignals or nothing... now is this have to do with this LA thing i have been hearing about... whats LA and could this be the cause
Wizard: oops welcome to the club... probably the laser's coils are just gone, so did your LA aswell. And some says that death rate is just "usual"... Oh well, compared to what ? You can read more about it in the several V9 syndrome topics, there are so many that one can never know what to read to get NEW + useful information, he he he. Finally someone should do a tutorial about this all, and do a faq about this whole V9/V10 otherwise this problem will spread over in thousand topics...
