Removing Laser Cap –
Haven't done much with lasers so I thought I would go inside and mess around a bit on my PS2. I was just reading a guide on how to get into the lower lens and I wanted to clean it out since it was getting pretty dirty over the years. I have a V6 with 400C laser.
In my attempt of cleaning the the lower lens I ran into a problem.. I can't remove the damn cap.
From my understanding, am I suppose to push those points in, then lift up to pull it out?
How do you remove the laser caps? Give me some suggestions. Thanks.
yeah they just snaright off, but you dont have to do that just clean the eye with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol
I'm trying to clean the lower lens. Really they do? I can't even get it to pop off. Damnit, ill try it again some other time.
check under the laser itself and you will see the tad get a fine point tip and push on that.
Alright, ill give that a try sometime this week when I do the lightmod for the PS2. Thanks.
You actually use a small screwdriver (or whatever) and insert it into each of the three marked spots. Then you push the 'tabs' outwards (towards the red arrows in that picture). Also, there is a bit of silicone or something 'glueing' the cover onto the main laser assembly. Just pry it upwards a bit and it'll come off.
Oh, I thought I was suppose to push it in and lift up? I did try to do what you said but no go. I'll guess I'll try it again later.
