Anyone tried to replace a silver slimlime, from a wide laser to a pvr802w?
I got my first silver slimline return (first ever actually), with the wide laser not reading dvds. I got another 2 silver slimlines still in stock, one modded already and another untouched. I tried to replace the lasers (whole block) on all 3 of them, and on all 3 of them the spindle doesn't spin at all, although the heads still move. I thought I blew a fuse, checked that, they are intact.
After some messing around, I ended up just putting back the original wide lasers, and they are working fine on the 2 new ones. On the returned machine it still has the same behaviour, as expected. But with the original laser block, the disc spins and is working fine. With the 802w's the disc just won't spin. I even tried using the lenschanger software to no avail. I don't have any black PStwo's in stock, so I can't test on them to see if it's a silver only problem, but my guess it shouldn't.
So, has anyone replaced a laser on a silver slimline? are you getting the same problems? Maybe all 3 of the 802w's are defective?
