77001 at my wits end
This unit is cursed. Brand new laser and the disc still refuses to spin. Tried a new motor as well. Still no spin. The laser doesn't try to read at the very center of the disc so could it be the laser return switch is off? I mean this unit is ****ing crazy but so are all slimline pos's.
Does it move out if you press the limit switch on the laser ?
Btw, check the DVD ribbon cable ... it might be ripped...
cable is fine. and I don't have enough hands to kill the limit switch but it will hit the center and roll back out.
Is there any possibility of a broken track on the mecha bus ? (a, b, g, h & i points)
Weird behavior usually comes from that kind of damage...
Also there is a 5V regulator that feed power for the laser power control circuit and RS2004 chip. Check if it's fuse is all right...
