Question regarding PSTwo laser kinds and replacement
Question regarding PSTwo laser kinds and replacement –
I have a slim PSTwo which just got toasted and I would like to replace it.
I checked the laser type and it is a KHM-430 type laser.
I looked through the net and saw that a lot of companies offer a replacement
laser which's type is PVR-802W.
I would like to ask a few questions regarding those types :
- Can I easily replace one ype with the other (I mean the whole mechanism,
not just the laser part) ?
- Is there any difference between the two laser types, I read in a web site
(I would post it here but I forgot its name, so I decided to ask here) that the
KHM-430 is a better laser then the PVR-802W, is that true ?
- Since I know that this burnout (not the game, haha) problem is global
to all PSTwo, I would very much appreciate to hear the experience other folks had with the same problem I currently have.
There is also a third kind of laser type. It's SPU3170. This laser is crap. I got four units that doesn't read DVD anymore. Have anyone replaced SPU3170 with KHM-430 or PVR-802W? Some modification is needed to the lid. SPU3170 needs a wider hole on the lid.
