v13 slim laser burn out
heya i gots a v13 ps2 slim that i have just recently installed a duo3 ultra and a Neo fix XIV into. the install seems ok, but the ps2 keeps burning out the laser. the discs never spin in the console. but the laser does move back and forth. (this was the way the console was before buying it and before moding it) i tried a diff laser deck with a diff laser and it did the same thing. the laser took a few reboots but it poped. and never not once did it read anything. nor did the disc ever spin any at all. if i hold the disable button on the controller i do get a msg on the screen saying "disabled" but it hangs there and will not even goto the home screen after this. if i just let it boot normally it goes to the home screen and stays there. i have checked both switches for the lid and they are both good. anyone gots any ideas what maybe going on? i just ordered a new laser from egay. but i dont want to pop this one as well :(
If it´s a v13 you don´t need any fix.And the Neo-fix is just crap.
Remove the fix and check all solderpoints and reinstall a new laser.
well, i removed the chip and the fix. and still the cd will not spin. :(
i know its not the spindle motor, because ive used 2 of them - 1 of witch was working fine. must be a fuse or something else :(
dang these slim-lines are junk imo :(
this ps2 was like this when i bought it so i knew about the issue, however i really thought replacing the laser would fix it hehehehe (after alot of reading on diff forums) guess i was wrong
If it was like that when you bought it.The guy that sold it scammed you.
It´s 100% the RS2004FS ic that are burned out.And they are like hell to change.
thx jetcat :)
u rock bro :)
i have a few of the slim mobos laying around that have 1 thing or another wrong with them. i may give it a whirl just for giggles :)
