summone fix blew laser
modded quite a few pstwo slims with the Magic V kx+ chip all without problems and no returns yet. But I heard there is a small percentage returns even with this chip.
Anyway, I had a brand new pstwo chipped with the magic V kx+, and perfectly working , but I though I`d test the summones fix just for a try and perhaps for added laser protection.
Blow me a nasty smell and the laser went pop straight away!! The discs wouldn`t even spin until I removed the 4K7 resistor.
Has anyone else had similar problems with this `fix`?
Summone`s fix itself is OK. The implementation of the fix is another thing...
You probably didn`t isolate the resistor well(or didn`t isolate it at all) and the resistor has grounded somewhere and the laser burnt.
do you mean grounded on the little via by the resistor?
By the way, if you ground the i/p to the laser how come it burns - grounded means no current doesn`t it?
you would probably get a better response if you would use your damn common sense and post this in the modchips section.
I apply Summone fix with MXL4,MI,Mars pro,Muppet and MAGICVKX+ no return yet(total 46 piece)I hope lasers not fry...
Be carefull when you aplly resistors and don't forget isolate resistors.
just done my 1st v12 with magic mod and summones fix all fine and dandy so far :)
it was the fix that popped the laser for sure i checked it.
The resitors werent grounding with anything at all.
Cakcetin what do you mean (isolate resistors).You must do something more form putting the resistors in the right place?
Mean isolate resistor from mobo for protect laser before resistor legs touch ground or other place OK?
Sorry for crappy English.
mayb u burnt the smd resistor
