Ticking laser.... –
I replaced my laser on a v4 ps2....now the installation process seemed simple, but when i try to play a cd/dvd you hear spinning but then starts ticking....Do i need to adjust it better and where do i start adjusting. Dont know where to start....
was the laser brand new or a refurb? when you put your disc in did the tray come all the way out? if not make sure the guide rails are lined up right.
i bought the laser brand new.... and the disc tray does come all the way out...
update: i got it to read dvds but it makes this noise that sucks...its the same ticking noise (not so much as a ticking but like a beeping noise) ive adjusted the azimuth screw to see if it was causing the noise, its a fast past ticking noise like if something is stuck. It happens when i turn the ps2 on, its for like 3 secs twice then stops. Then when i put the dvd in it sounds like its scrapping the dvd? whut do i have to adjust?
there is a white cog that raises the laser up anjd down try lowering it a lttle
It sound like the white plastic piece that moves the lazer along the rails is worn out.. take it off clean it off a bit, or get one from another broken console.
I fix these by heating the plastic piece and bending it slightly so that it has a tighter griop on the motor/screw thingy ... i hope you can make sense of that
Well it did have dirt on it and the noise stopped, and i thought it worked but it still only reads blue disc games...ive been trying silver ones and no go. so far ive been adjusting the white cog and the screw. feels like ive tried all settings but ill keep trying.
is the lens clean rubb it with a q-tip and alcohol. if all the tips here didnt work time to make a call and get a new laser.
try takin out the laser, and putting it back it...who knows maybe it will work...
