No disc spin with Smartchip X5 v9
No disc spin with Smartchip X5 v9 –
I've fitted the Smartchip x5 to a V9 this evening. The machine boots as normal to the browser screen but there is no disc spin whatsoever with back-ups or original games.
Yes, I have checked & rechecked all my vias & all apears to be well.
Any other ideas welcome.
you may have the dreaded dead laser that I came across with a brand new V7 - after a perfect M2 V1.30 install.
Try a quick back out and see if the station still works else...
Make a very safety blind in the cable of R and the clock !!!!
Ok heres an update. After hours of messing & tweaking I decided to swap the chip............... hiding underneath the chip was the worlds biggest ever solder splash (covering approx 30mm diameter)
Now don't ask me how the hell it got under the chip but shÃ*t happens etc.
The result now is the disc spins (woohoo). The laser now clicks repeatedly trying to find the groove with both original and back-up games, if it finds the groove, then the game boots, if it doesn't, it stays at the browser but the spindle stops spinning.
I'm loathed to adjust the laser on a new machine so any ideas mucho appreciato

Hmm perhaps you havent got all rid of all the solder? Also check CD/DVD cabels, make sure O is wired flat Etc etc etc
