V4 that will not play DVD-R
I know these questions have been asked before but here we go... oh, and I did search. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I have a 35001 V4 that came with the GT3 package. We installed a Magic 3.1. I can play all originals and all PS and PS2 cd-rs but NO dvd-rs.
I am using Pioneer 106 w/ latest firmware, Verbatim data-life plus, RecordNow Max at slowest burn speed.
We opened her back up to change the W point to W1. 2 wires were found to be loose. The joints were repaired and the W was moved. All solder connections were checked under a microscope and verified with a Fluke meter. All connectors were tight and no cables kinked, everything looks good. Still have the same problem, everything plays but DVD-Rs. I guess next will be to check the laser calibration. I know that it being an older unit some say the laser might be week but this one was barely used.
If the problem was the loose connections, does the W1 need to be moved back to W? Can you think of any other points to check? What would be the next direction to go other than new chip or PS2? Thanks again!
