Problem playin GTA SA –
Ok ive got a PS2 version 5 i think, its chipped with an infinity matrix chip with the latest firmware, the laser was fcuked so i got a new one but they sent the wrong one, the origanal was a sanyo open faced laser and they sent me a HD7 laser so i tried fitting it anyway to see if it would work and it seemed to but when GTA SA first loads up and goes to the loading bar while the backgrounds are changing once it reaches the end nothing happens, any ideas?
I had a the exact same problem with GTA Vice City and a v7. What I had to do was adjust the height of the laser with the screw on the left side of the laser itself (The one that slides on the laser guide rail) untill it would load the entire game. Keep the top off the ps2 and just screw on the drive cover and keep adjusting the screw by a half turn at a time.
try letting it hang there..so a while see wut happens
You mean just leave it once it reaches the end of the loading bar? i left it for nearly 10 mins before and got fed up with it, so do you think a HD-7 laser will be ok as a replacement for a Sanyo open faced laser if i just try adjusting it?
Yeah I wouldn't bother watching the loading bar not doing anything, I've been there. I would try adjusting the laser height first before I went out and bought a new laser. You may need a new laser, but since it will still at least load the games, I would try cleaning/adjusting first. If all else fails, prelace the laser. If you have a v7 ps2, it SHOULD be a 400C laser. If this is the case you must get the same laser to replace it. I've never had to replace a 400C laser, but I'm sure it could be going bad. Just remember Adjust, clean, and THEN replace if you have to, don't waste your money on a new laser if you can fix the one you have.
its a version 5 and the laser was a Sanyo open faced laser but it had gone so i got a new laser for it but they sent me the wrong one they sent me a HD-7 laser, thats the one ive put in and its now that its only going up to the load bar
