No disc spin after romeo mod
No disc spin after romeo mod –
Have just installed Matrix Infinity in V9 Pal console, did romeo mod and put back together and the disc wouldnt eject, pulled it all apart checked chip install, thats flawless, removed romeo mod and soldered pin 17 back down, now tray opens but disc wont spin, removed top and laser was flashing like crazy but no disc spin, did romeo mod again, no eject, was working perfect before, any ideas
I have the exact same problem here, just finished a v9 DUO 2 se mod with romeo mod, tray opens and laser working but no disc spin. It worked when I tested 2 discs but on the 3rd disc it didn't spin anymore.
OK, I have been fiddling and it seems that if I spin the disc myself then it works fine. Any ideas, it seems as though there is not enough power to get the disc to initially spin up??????
Is there nobody here that can help ? any ideas?
Does it spin clockwise or counter-clockwise? ~Same problem here, without romeo mod, wanna try what viper said...

I redone romeo mod the other way by cutting track on other side of board and then it worked, no problem.
where are you connecting the 5 volts from ?
Thanks for the reply Netmech, I am taking the 5 volts from here, attached image. Please help if you can.

Hmmmmmmm thats a odd one there. I personally use that same spot for 5 volts and it works fine. However ive noticed with the open face lasers i need bigger wire like 28awg or even 26 awg. Do you have any other v9 dvd drives laying around ? could be the motor thats the problem.
When you lifted pin no 17 did you make sure that the pad underneath it doesnt bridge with enay of the pads next to it,also I found thats its a good idea to use some heat srink tubing and cover the leg and the wire with it,to stop it shorting with enaything around it.
Ps viper357 Where in south africa are you from,maybe I can help?
