V12 Dead After Open/Close Door
V12 Dead After Open/Close Door –
I have a modded v12 that worked great for over 2 months, but after switching games one fateful night its decided to not read the disc *at all*. Its not spinning the disc and not running the laser at all, except on initial powerup to home the laser. I tested the door switch and its OK. I noticed that the laser has speckles on it, ive read about people saying the lens is 'clouded over', what does that mean and how could it happen?

could be that the cloud you see over the lens is dirt. try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol.
you should check the lid on the pstwo.....mine got messed up with the ghost switch install, then i found out i forgot to put the ghost clip in
replacing laser –
Well based on the searching ive done and the clues, i would say the laser is toasted. Its speckled and doesnt look very clear although i dont have any other V12 lasers to compare it to. It also looks a bit warped on the left edge of the laser.
My question is what can i do? i have checked most all the fuses and they are OK. Are there any specifics i can look for to identify the cause, and is it worth it to replace the laser unit in hopes that a new one wouldnt do the same thing after a while?
Well i came into posession of a replacement laser from a newer V12 unit. It was not the same, it had a S### model number (i think) and was designed for a wider opening in the pstwo top half. Well that didnt stop me, i installed it and it works great. What should i be looking for as far as symptoms it might happen again? Like i said it worked for 3 months just fine and then in an instant went bad. Any thoughts are appreciated.
