Laser melted?? –
I recently modded my v12 with i DMS4 Pro, i also added the summone fix (560ohm)
it worked perfectly at start. But in the middel of God of War, it froze! And after that it coudn't read anything.!
I pulled it apart, took a close look at the laser..! It look like one of the corners are melted!?
Futhermore, when the drive spins up, it does slow and in small "chums"
So i guess i need a new laser! but is that all there are broke??
I also think i try another fix! is the Neo-Fix II any good?
Know any cheap places to buy these replacements?

i'd double check that summones fix was connected properly. check that no points were shorted? also chec the resistance of the resistor with a multimeter. did u use the 2 resistor fix?
The fix is made like this picture show..
What resistor should i check? the one that i have solded the summone on?
Are you sure you used the correct resistor for the fix ? What are the values of the 2 smd components ?
South Africa. Repairs, chips etc.
by the look of the pic, you only used one resistor on tracking. if you check the resistance on both coils, most likely the focusing one has gone. you should apply 2 resistors fix (560ohm and 4.7k)
Hmm.. Well.. After seaching the forums a bit... No, i'm not really sure.

What i should have done!!:
Tracking driver (10D on SMD) = added 4.7kOhm
Focus driver (303 on SMD) = added 560Ohm
Could the SMD-resistors have been damaged? How much should they read when i'm measuring them on the board?
Yes, you made a big mistake by add to 10D 560 ohm....For 10D resistor you must use 4K7..
You can measure it easyly 10D=100K

again you are not right. with focus you should always use 4.7k

I have measured my coils, focus = 4.0 and tracking = 5.7. Thats not very good is it?!
