v12 lazer adjust –
guys : I just installed a crystal chip on a new v12 date code 3c ps2 , during install i had a few troubles and had to take unit apart a few times, i have since fixed trouble i was having and things seem to be working, back up ps2's would load to a point then freeze, i then cleaned the lense with alcohol and cue tip, things are better and i am able to load back up games but slowly, also when playing a dvd (original) it will flash to blue screen. Also to add to this i added the "someone's fix" (560 ohm res),
with this date code do i need this fix?? (someone's fix)
I beleive that the laser needs to be adjusted (height/asmith) also maybe power to laser.
My question is that all the guides that i have seen are for earlier versions of ps2, is there a guide for the v12 ps2's ????
if so can anyone give me a link to it

I don't think that thread has any information is relevant. He's asking for the v12 laser adjustment guide. Ragweed, there is no need to adjust your laser. Pstwos are new and I doubt the laser wear out that fast. You only need to adjust it when it's worn out and you want to give it extra reading power (which kills it faster).
Try removing summ0ne's fix to see if it will do much. Don't clean the laser or adjust it. It's too new to be dirty (unless you touched it with your fingers) or worn out.
just trying to help him out.. that site has the intructions how to clean the lens.
I did exactly that, (removed someone's fix) but same result it still will not play original (dvd's) (flashes to blue).
