Sanyo laser HD7 for scph30003R –
I've got an unmodded Pal scph-30003R which spins silver backed DVD/PS2 at an incredible speed without reading them. However, PS1 and dark/puple backed PS2 games work fine and the discs spin as normal.
Took the laser out, cleaned it etc, but still no use.
The laser ,I think, is a Sanyo HD7 (has no sony marks on it) - does it need to be replaced? If so, where do I find a cheap one - looked at the usual places, but damn expensive, and mostly unavailable! Can other laser types be used?
Or is it a fault somewhere?
Thanks for any help
