PS2 version 4 no-gap with clicking dvd/cdrom drive problem
PS2 version 4 no-gap with clicking dvd/cdrom drive problem –
To start with i chipped a ver 4 with no gap bios with dms 3 ver1 and the console booted up fine, updated the flash with 1.6c then 2.3 and tested it.
All was ok until i put the cover on, thats when i got a blank screen.
So i removed the cover i found that i chewed through wire A(3.3v) with a screw so i replaced that wire and now the console boots up fine but the drive just clicks no matter what disk i put in.
And just to add i removed the Wire A (3.3v) and the drive still clicks?
What wire(s) do i need to remove to revert the console back to its original state?
wheres the troubleshooting FAQ??
I'm pretty sure the clicking means the lazer is going bad and doesn't have to do with the chip.
I Opened it back up and took a look, No bridges of any sort and no disconnected wires.
The console boots up fine and i can hold down all the L+R buttons to go into the dms menu. (the 1 with psx screen fix, video fix boot mode etc) therefore i know the chip is working fine. Only problem is that the cd/dvd unit just clicks constantly and wont read a disk and its fooking me off.
The funny thing is that the console was working fine before i screwed through the +ve wire (ultimately grounding point A) after which all it did was clicked.
Should i try alternative points for the dvd controller wires? Oh and if i take those off should the drive function correctly?
Or would i need a new lens?
I forgot to mention that i blew some hot air on the lens as i was cleaning it. Was that my downfall?
Could someone please shed some light on this, if its the laser i would like to know so that i can purchase a new 1 but i'd rather not if it's not the laser.
