v2, weak laser, duo2 se fresh install, dvd backups = rsod –
Sorry for choppy language, i typed this thread on a pocket pc.
The ps2 I installed the duo2 se chip on was a refurbished v1/2 ps2 with a weak laser. I tried to adjust the laser and its pots also to read better, I also cleaned the laser. After installing the chip the ps2 didnt boot dvd backups, it would recognize the disc as a ps2 disc in the browse but when trying to boot the game it just gave a rsod. The system boots cd backup/originals, dvd originals and dvd-r movies. Ive tried cleaning and adjusting the laser numerous times but it always gave a rsod or disc read error for the dvd backups. I can conclude that the laser is worn out too much?
Im rusty on soldering, haven't done it in over 9 months, but i feel my install was good.
