PStwo disc not spinning
Hi, i got a problem whit my PStwo SCPH-70004.
When i power up i get the menu and all but the disc wont spin at all, i checked all cables whit multimetar, cleaned the lens and cehcked all fuses (they r ok).
I m thinking on buying a new laser but i m afraid that it wont fix the problem.
When i power up (green light, 2 cover buttons pressed) laser is not moving it just waits for about 4 sec and then lights up for about 1/2 sec.
First i tought that slide motor is bad but when i just unplug laser flat cable, laser starts to slide to the end and keeps going on untill i relese the cover switch, then he gets back to the starting position (about 4/5 lenght away from center).
I checked that swich on laser board and its ok, when i press that switch while powerd up and closed, laser lights up instatly (no 4 sec delay).
I have Mars4 mod chip installed for over a year now, i desoldered his power wire and tryed then but problem still persist and i m all out of ideas... any help would be much appriciated.
I used to have similar problems but all I used to do was apply some pressure to the disc spindle(the thing you LATCH the disc onto) and it would start working immediately.
also you seem to have V12 PS2. do you have LaserFIX installed?
I do have a laser fix installed, dont know wich one exactly. I replaced the laser and like i feared it didnt solve the problem. I tryed to push the spindle but still no result, could the mod chip be damaged and can i disable him by just desoldering his power wire or do i need to compleatly remove it.
Well, then you've got to get a new laser I guess.
