Got the replacement laser for my v5 (finally), dropped it in, adjusted the tangential and now the disc just spins and spins, console says Reading Disc. Laser is perfectly clean, pots are around 1100/1000. Checked all other screws, ribbon cable is snug.
Anyone have some troubleshooting suggestions? (By the way, kickass laser replacement guide from LoD)
Popped old laser in, originals boot. Backups, still nothing.
Red light kicks on with new laser when no disc is present, disc still spins with no read.
Pretty stuck at this point, checked all adjustments.
set the cog and the screw back to original position as you may have over adjusted them...
for how to attack setting up a laser see here:
I think loy or lod of this forum has set up a good guide some where on the faq area...
Maybe the replacement is faulty? It does happen.
DAMNIT! I completely forgot about the cog/laser height adjustment. Giving that a try now...thanks guys.
