V12 laser problem with MI...URGENT PLEASE HELP –
i have a v12, and i just changed my modbo with my bluedot MI.
and the disk did not spin, the laser moved to the center with millisecond of laser emmited, and then nothing happened, did not read.
okay first of all,
i soldered MI in,
i had problem with laser fix, it just wont stay, i spent 6 hours, tried flux, solder paste, and flux+solder paste, doesnt work, so i tried to put a LOT of lead, which seems to be sticking it on.
then i fliped it over, and astonishingly found my mini screw driver INSIDE my reader, between the glass and the "box" around it, i pulled it out with great care, and checked the wiring, which doesnt seem to be damaged.
tried to read disk, disk doesnt spin up, laser coiled to the center, generate a flash of laser, and stayed there.
i tried to desolder the power from laser fix and MI, and see if it reads music cds, and failed.
resoldered it, tried to enter the mi config screen, worked.
saved settings, worked
i tried to set the mode to "dev1", which is "booting from mem1", and i saw it reading the mc(i have the led installed), but i dont have the boot.elf inside.
can anyone help please?!?!?!?!?!?!
