PS2 Laser Complication
Ok guys, I have a v4 I am modding for someone that needs a laser. I bought another one for it yet it does not work when I install it. Here is what the sticker on my laser reads "KHS-400B D554 11514CA3 C640" and the laser I bought from the guy says this "KHS-400B Z460 21374CD1 Y550". I really don't know what's up with the lasers but the laser I bought has a green pcb and a different layout than mine which has an orange pcb. I was told this should work since it's a KHs-400B but then again it doesn't. Here's what happens. With the laser I have: Originals games do not direct boot but go to browser and lets me load the game from there, Backups refuse to direct boot and when it tries to go to the browser, it goes to the red screen saying to insert a ps2 or ps1 disc. With the laser I bought: Originals loaded to ps2 logo at first then went black but now originals do not load and it goes to browser and says no data (yes it was plugged in), Backups refuse to boot and go to te red screen as well. Do any of you know what would cause this? I was told by Loy, another big installer, that it was the laser. But I really haven't had this problem before. By chance do any of you know? Also the guy who owns this ps2 bought it used and when he bought it, it had a refurbished sticker on the bottom. By chance could the ps2 have been sent in to fix the Disc Read Errors before he bought it and they put in a different laser? I really don't know and the owner doesn't know either. Please if anyone knows what the problem is let me know. BTW I just installed a M2 Pro into it. It's a v4 SCPH-30001 U5 and Data Code 1B ps2 with 8 screws on the bottom. Thanks guys. I appreciate it.
