PS2 V0 Jap 18000 Laser clicking no DVD reading (DRE) but CD Yes, please help! –
Please if some one could help me trought this...
Its an V0 Jap SPCH-18000 / GH-008 board, I know its old, but I love this unit...
The laser is a KHS-400B with an DMS3 V2.0 that I have remove for the testings with some DVDs ( Video - Region ALL ). I tried first to just clean the lens, no sucess at all, after clean the entire drive disassembled every thing and put some new grease after taking out every single dust / grease. After that I tried to adjust the angle of the laser, pot (DVD) and nothing works. I measure the coil 1 (4.8) and coil 2 (5.0) taking the difference of my meter apart of this results (Meter shorted reads 0.7 OHMS) those coil values are measured from the laser unit it self without the Orange FLAT thats add 0.4 OHMS when connected. And the values from Pots are left 1100 for DVD and 1200 for the CD. CDÂ´s boots everytime (Audio CD, CD-R - before taking DMS3). Now IÂ´m really concerned, I will need to bought an new Laser unit or just the Lens????
PS: Can I just doesnÂ´t adjust the pot of DVD well ??? Will need an Ociloscope or dead already ????
Please help me this is my baby, I really love this unit !!!!
Looks like your lens has had its days!!! i had the same trouble too, go get a new one dude!
Hey thanks for your reply man, but iÂ´m wonder if I can fix that with an Ps2 Diode, that is refurbishment of my older lens, this is more afordable and I want to star a new business doing this. I have read all over the place and only found one place over the web that sold those Diodes for repairment plus the coil and the PCB board (in UK). There is a way to know whatÂ´s the part that fried??? The coil I guess is working fine, the lens and the Diode is a mistery... Thanks anyway.
