Pot/Azimuth calibration necessary if CD-Rs don't boot?
Pot/Azimuth calibration necessary if CD-Rs don't boot? –
Subject says it all. Would a pot/azimuth adjustment be necessary if I have exhausted all other avenues in my attempt to trouble-shoot my install? I read the forums but most threads concerning the pot calibration issue mostly deal with DVD-R booting problems. Do I need to resort to risking damage to the laser to correct my CD-R booting problem when my DVD-Rs boot perfectly fine?
Brand new V7 NTSC console
M2 Pro 1.3
Pioneer 105 with 1.3 firmware
- CD-R: TDK, SMARTBUY, HARMONY (none boots)
- DVD-R: RITEK 4x certified, Princo 2x (boots perfectly)
- DVD-RW: Princo 1x (boots perfectly, but a little noisy, scratching sound)
Well, an azimuth adjustment is relatively painless and there is no risk to the console in doing it. The pot adjustment, however, will render your laser completely dead if you do it incorrectly. My suggestion, go for an azimuth adjustment first (and I think it will probably solve your problem) and then do a pot adjustment as a VERY LAST RESORT. Just make sure to mark your starting position for either adjustment before beginning so you can return the console to "factory stettings" if necessary.
clean the laser with a q-tip and alcohol... if it still doesnt boot cd-rs then pot tweak is nessesary, turn the pot about 5 degrees clockwise then try the cd-rs... should boot
