v10 h20 –
done a silver ps2 v10(50003a) a while ago, got it back as it ain't playing DVDr's anymore (games or movies). Checked the install and looks fine. tried moving the white cogs on the drice assembly a few clicks but made no diffrence, goin to try adjusting the DVDpot next, is this a fcuked laser or anything else i should check first?
Forgot to mention, it plays cdr no prob. was a bit jumpy with original ps2 games but gave the lens a clean and no skipping at all.
the disc drawer has a piece of plastic missing from it, so ithink it may have been dropped at some time.
I would assume that you've tried cleaning the laser lens & the disc spindle right? Will it still play a cdr backup? Have you tried measuring the coils on the laser?
cleaned the lens on the laser first, and plays cdr backups no prob.
had a go at the pots tonight, not sure which is which though
the one onthe left read 1329
the one on the right read 1614
what should they read?
Because it plays cdr backups, I would think the modchip is fine.
When you cleaned the laser though, you should clean the rubber spindle that spins the disc. If this is dirty, the disc will slip and can cause problems.
The pot on the right is the for the dvd pot. Before you tweak the laser, I would check the resistance on the coils first.
how do i measure the coils ?
Change the 'hxxp' above to 'http'. I'm not sure if it's alright to post live links...
I think i've measured the coils right, 5.7 and 6.0 was the readings i got, is this normal??
I measured the pots on the laser, CD was 1329 and DVD 1614. ive droppped the DVD pot to 1400, but no difference. how low should i go?
ps2 original - plays ok, was jumping on video scenes but cleaned lens and works ok now.
I re-done the romeo mod with i different point on motherboard.
ps2 DVDr - on Taiyo Yunden disc it boots into game loading screen and gets no further. On Ritk G05 discs tries to boot, resets, tries to boot again then RSOD.
DVDR movie - tries to boot, resets tries to boot again then RSOD.
PS2 CDr - plays fine.
no original ps1 to tryout.

hmm,... maybe it's a problem with the modchip then. Do you have a picture of your install that you could post?
