Any Ideas? –
I need some opinions. I have a version 2 that works great. The problem I am having...is that sometime it'll stop during a movie, saying unable to read disc. Plus if I am playing a game, if it's dvd, it'll lockup when having to go back to disc to read. Doesn't really seem like it would be laser prob to me. I have adjusted laser several times, really no difference. Any info from others would be great.
sounds like dodgy media. check if its scratched.
If I had it here, first thing I would do is thoroughly clean the laser and then take measurement of the POT?s.
Then I would run a DVD movie with the drive lid off, white magnet on the DVD and find the spot where it starts to cut up (probably towards the outside edge data of a DVD). Then fine-tune the white cog and possibly the laser screw (parallax and azimuth, I keep forgetting which is which). If that doesn?t work then I would lower the DVD POT a little (no lower than 750 ohms) and try again.
If a PS2 reads the Inside data or first half of an original and can?t read the outside data it is usually the white COG that needs adjusting.
could be media but since you have a v2 its time you get a new laser.
I think those v2's have the cog that auto adjusts.
