V3, modded, turn on, Laser coils go up in smoke?
V3, modded, turn on, Laser coils go up in smoke? –
got a V3, the laser in it is not the best but plays games. I decided to mod it for the hell of it. Ive done dozens of mods before on all different version and never had a failed mod.
I put a DUO chip in this Version 3 console, i always double check all wires for shorts and make sure they are in the right places and not shorting on anything around them. With this all checked and fine, i put it back together and then turned it on. the dvd tray ejected a bit slower than usual, then retracted at a very very slow rate, without a DVD in it. then i smell burning. I turn the thing off quick smart and pull it apart again. one side of the laser has the coils burned, 1.4 ohms now, the other side is fine.
I pulled it apart again and checked the installation and couldnt find any shorts or anything.
What would cause the laser coils to burn as soon as you turn it on with no disc in it??
short somewhere, that is the only reason why the laser would fry
what area would i be looking for this short? spent half hour looking for shorts around the install with no luck.
