V13/ is adjusting dvd pot necessary...?
V13/ is adjusting dvd pot necessary...? –
I see some people are adjusting the dvd pot to around 1200.
Some people are not making any adjustments.
Is the adjustment necessary...?
It's a brand new pstwo. Why would you need to adjust the laser? It's completely new.
Because some ppl say if you do, you dont need a laserfix Tony.

yeah, i wont adjust the pots either on v13.
By the way, has anyone in europe seen these consoles yet? or are they only avaible in USA ?
When you say install the fix,do you mean the "SummOne fix"...
Cause if you do...the SummOne fix only gives protection for the coils(which has now been rectified by $ony,with the new boards/additional components).
It does not help with the laser diode issue.They are still using the inferior wide lasers.
EspeN...these new units are in the UK according to fellow installers.
with the wide lens, it's better to check the dvd pot resistance making sure it's not too low. increasing the value of the dvd pot will reduce the chance of laser diode being damaged. however the laser might end up being picky for media. as long as you adjusted properly it should be fine for most of the wide lenses. i have done a few of the them by increasing the resistance to 1200ohm and so far so good.
The SPU lenses (the ones with a metal square plate on the right side of the lens) are bad lenses. When you play recordables with them, the DVD laser diodes will soon be dead. Especially with bad media.
The laser fixes have totally nothing to do with this.
The fix for these lenses are:
1) Replace them with lenschanger with PVR lenses, or
2) Increase the resistence value on the DVD pot. Some would say turn the screw for 1 mm counter-clockwise. Then of course test the laser with originals and backups
I replace all the SPU lenses by PVR ones.
can someone say me if a fix in the new v13's is needed?
I'm planning on getting a premodded from www.konsolenguru.de
any reviews on this shop? (they got good ebay feedback and on their site, but dunno if they are good modders)
