Yeah i have problems like too. It spil just a little, tik tik tik. im having big problems with the summ0ne fix myself. I use subzero now, summ0ne on pcb, and i find that better.
I ended up replacing the entire motherboard to fix the problem. This was on a system that was working fine for a few months, then the spindle motor just stopped spinning.
I think long term the summ0ne fix can damage something on the board, because others have problems with the disc not spinning immediately after adding the fix.
The biggest problem is instead of a cheap laser burning up, I have expensive motherboards failing (not to mention a reinstall of the chip). I'm now using the pic fix instead.
if the disc isnt spinning and the resistors are ok check PS13...
If the disc is doing those little turns, but not spinning properly, then the laser has gone. This is how I've fixed this kind of problem.
South Africa. Repairs, chips etc.
its all a matter of skill... the only possible mobo damage related to the fix is physical damage on the resistors. It can be easily fixed by replacing the resistors.
but lets not rule out (for example) dead mechacons that might be damaged by the installed modchip.
Is it possible to repair the SMD resistors, with normal 1/4 watt resistors?
Yes, been there done that.

I added two wires from each point and solder to big resistors that i isolated in tape.
Oki! I will try that.. Thanks
just remember to get the correct values. 683 smd = 68k.
jep jep.. Mine was 10D (100K)
And it work like a charm!
