Adjust laser height on v3 Auto adjusting cog style DVD drive
Hey guys, this is the first time I have run into this style PS2 DVD drive. (see pic)
According to the little amount of info I could find on the net, it automatically adjusts the laser height on power up.
Since the laser is very weak on this old PS2, I was wondering if there is anyway to adjust the laser height besides this cog. I have not adjusted the pots or tangential skew screw yet.
I thought of perhaps putting some small pieces of plastic under the drive rails. Also it seems the only way to make the laser height lower would be to file out the plastic on the bottom of the area where drive rails rests. I just wanted to consult those with experience with this drive type first.
I have plenty of other working PS2's so I really don't need to replace the laser on this one. I currently use it for HDL and homebrew, so everything else is working correctly.
