V4 error reading dvd..
A guy brings in a V4 unit, a note comes with it saying : doens't read games anymore..
Tested it with dvdr and other media - i hear the clicking of the laser that's all it does.
Opened it up and found out that there is a Magic 3.1 installed, checked al solder point and they seem ok.
So does this laser needs calibration or is it just busted ?
Can you give me some tips on how to immediatly determine if it is defective... Thnxx in advance for any relpy's.
It sounds like a lazor problem not reading dvd discs, I have seen this on sereral units, a new lazor unit should cure the problem.
Try adjusting the laser Tangetial Skew and the white cog first. You can find the guide on the forum under guides. I had a V4 that woulnt read discs and constantly clicked because the laser was out of alignment.
I printed the tutorial yesterday and adjusted the white cog turning it clockwise, first of all i adujsted the Tangetial Skew but without any result.
The tangetial skew should it be turned out or inwise ?
before you try tampering with the laser i had the same problem with the magic 3.1 chip it plays games when it feels like it. try taking the chip out or try coping on a different media. you will be surprised how many times it is the chip and not the laser having problems.
I installed a Magic3.1 for a guy last week (he supplied the chip) I normally wouldnt touch them. Now he is ringing me saying that there are disk errors etc, his was a newish V7.
Just gonna put a messiah into it for him!
