Ver 10 No DVD'S Play... –
Is this the infamous LA Chip/Laser issue?
Is it possible one of the conections to the chip is bad.
I am at work so I cant check, Was working on board late last night. This board had sever issues when I rrecieved it. TO lifted /missing vias for the Cd controller ( Which Has been repaired) And a broken Cap by a 3.3v point. Any how, I was able to repair that, And power it on. (with no chip)
And All originals worked.
I then fitted an MXL2 to it. It plays Originals PSX and PS2
Backup PS2, But it will not play any original or backup DVD's. Movies or games. Laser was cleaned.
Is it possible I just messed up a wire somewhere. Like I said. I have not inspected it.

just sits at the browser, When DVD is inserted, Drive spins can here laser focusing, And then It just sits at the browser.
If i chose the browser, and select Disc. Thne it gives me Disc Read Error.
Well i guess i blew the LA. CDs play fine, no DVDs at all. I removed mod chip and same thing.
Use a razor blade between the legs of the chips where you soldered.
I once had an Invisible short among two legs that got me crazy for two days.
Well, Im just going to return it.
I soldered it under a scope, THere are no bridges.
SO do you guys do the protection fix on the LA chip ( change supply voltage to 5 volts on pin 17)?
