Are phat ps2 lasers compatible I have two phat ps2 one is mod chipped the other is not the mod chipped one the laser is broke so I took the laser out of the working one and swapped them over and it wouldnt work the disk spin tries to read the stops swapped back over and the none chipped one is working again so no it's not the laser but laser looks a bit different from the other one ? Cheers
Most likely different models and not compatible :D
Thanks Thought that could be the case the chipped one is a launch ps2 model the other is a bit newer
If your newer model is newer than the v5, you can use LensChanger to reconfigure the PS2 to use the 'other' type of laser.
Early Japanese models (SCPH-10000, SCPH-15000 and SCPH-18000): Sony KHS-400A
Some early Fat PS2s (SCPH-30000 series): Sony KHS-400B
Some of the slightly newer fat PS2s (SCPH-3x000 series): Sony KHS-400C
Some of the slightly newer fat PS2s (SCPH-3x000 series): Sanyo KHS-400R
All the late fat PS2s (SCPH-50000 series and the v8 SCPH-39000 series): Sanyo HD7
KHS-400B lasers can be replaced with a KHS-400C, but the 'R' type lasers (KHS-400R and the HD7) cannot be used as a substitute without reconfiguring the console (Which might not be possible for some models).
I don't remember this clearly, but the SCPH-50000 series onwards cannot be reconfigured for other laser types (Other than the one that it came with) as the MECHACON was replaced by Sony with a really well-secured one.
