Magic 3.2, V9, Romeo Mod - Sudden DREs
Magic 3.2, V9, Romeo Mod - Sudden DREs –
I took in a failed mod - Magic 3.2 (clone?). Wires everywhere and superglued to the board. I cleaned it up and get everything working great. Tested DVD-R backups from Ritek and originals flawlessly. The day my customer came to pick it up he inserts imation and some cheap DVD copies and suddenly we are getting DREs on everything. What the hell just happened. Damnit I always reject clones.. and the one time I decide to give it a try this is what happens
Shortened the Romeo wire and doubled it up. Reads Ritek DVD-R up until I try a DVD+RW - after this it kills all reading.. then after almost what seems to be a cooldown period, the DVD-R is readable again until I put in the DVD+RW again or any shitty media. I'm just going to remove romeo
400C or HD7? Did you happen to check the DVD Pot? Sometimes they are way high, like 1600 ohms. lower it to around 1350 if it's high. You can also try running the LA off an 8V regulator, beats going back to 12V. Could be just a bum laser.
Thanks! That worked!
Dropped DVD pot from 1650 to 1335
CD pot from 1655 to 1230
Plays everything beautifully!
