Just fitted magic3 into a V7!
Back-ups (dvd-rips) go to playstation logo screen but no further. This is consistent with all games - It looks like it is going to boot, shows me the ps2 screen then after a few more seconds of positive screen flickers, gives the red 'please insert ps2 disc'
Laser probably needs Azimuth adjustment. 1 in 4 v7s we've done need this.
Any chance of a sticky?
I have checked ohms on V7s aswell, find the DVD pot to be anything up to 1700+ !! // CD-pot (at least thats the one i think it is...top right as you look) is usually set 1200 area. I only adjusted these more in hope than anything else after getting read errors after V7 messiah2 (Euro 1.07 - non-pcb-fix) installs (3+ same error immediate after install/back out made no difference).
If you don't mind drongo would you tell us how to adjust the pots m8?
You can do adjustments with ps2 on or off, but personally i turn mine off as probes are just a little too short to reach connections i need to read from...
OK flip ps2 over, remove cover so you can see the power supply (PSU), remove the metal shield next to the PSU and there you see the laser assembly, there are two adjusters (they look like screw heads) connected to the base of these two are 2 very small legs, this is where you put meter to resistance and measure the ohms. Apparently the 1200 range is the norm I believe..Dont use a metal tool to adjust if possible, try a hard plastic tool if you can (trimming tool). Now after you read the resistance, adjust the pot in decrements of 50 or 100 depending how far from 1200 they are and retest disk until it reads, dont go below the 900 mark or laser life will be over super quick!!
What type of test meter do I need m8 (20 questions or what lol).
To show my appreciation, email me ur addy n I'll post u a crate!
