V12 - H20 Problems –
I recently installed a H20 into a V12.
Firstly I connected wires J and K and didnt install resistor and cut the track (on advice from supplier i was told i didnt need to).
PS2 was working fine with DVD-R. I then on 2nd advice installed resistor and cut the track. PS2 only went to the browser screen and i could smell the laser.
Checked all my solder points and everything look ok. Now the laser wont spin. I took out the chip and the resistor and PS2 still dosent spin.
Is it the laser i have damaged? Will this need replacing or is their a fix?
Its a PAL (Australia) PS2 machine as well.
Thanks in advance.
You probably applied the resistor incorrectly. Did you tape it so it doesn't ground itself against the case?
It sounds to me like you have grounded the resitor and popped the laser. If your ps2 board is v13 you dont need resistor fix anyway. There are loads of pictures of the new revision on the forum, just search. I also see divineo in china have upped the pvr802 laser prices again to $39.99, almost double what it was a few weeks back. Bestof luck.
I just been to divineo.cn and the price for pvr802 is still $21.95.
Re: Flying Scotsman - Its a V12 not 13
If i remove the chip and reconnect the cut track, will the ps2 operate as original without fear of frying another laser?
Could I have done any other damage to the motherboard?
Last time i bought lasers i paid 12.5$ for them

Yes it should be ok and make sure you have removed any solder splash. I had a v12 and I fried the two on board resistors which I had to replace as well..

if you want J and K wires to work, you must cut the track.
and always apply the resistor accordingly and afterwards clean the area of flux with a cotton tip stick and acetone
if you are just testing the fix on the chip without the other wires, make sure the +5v1 wire is connected (it is reference voltage for the subzero fix)
