v12 issues on two seperate units...help
v12 issues on two seperate units...help –
Laser lens looks melted and disc does not spin. Unit boots to browser. I have ordered new pvr802. What should I check before installing new lens? Why did the lens melt?
Unit boots to browser, but only get disk read error (only trying original DVD). Initially (before I played with it) got light from laser. Tried cleaning, no joy. I turned pot marked "DVD" clockwise by small increments, no joy. Now no light from laser, so I assumed I fired the laser (coils)? So, my question is why would it not read DVD if laser seemed to work. Is something else wrong other than laser (i.e. mobo)?
Final question, what is "SMD"? I am afraid to just install new laser block without knowing what caused the problem in the first place. I plan on implementing Summone's "fix" using 1/4 watt resistors.
well david if you have alot of coin go for it repalce lasers and RS2004 chek fuses. console #1 is clasic dead laser. shuld have used summones fix and second one u shuld have never touched the pots if it culd read cd but not dvd then only half of the laser was dead. All the slim lines are crap . Thank god those damb v12 laser are so cheep(&crapy) . chek E-bay $13.50 from FL. If u keep Killing Consoles it might be a good idea to hang up you soldring iron..
As for smd its a Surfacemount components risistors and such like the ones you have to solder to for the summone fix. If your under 25 installs and you have to replace lets say the Rs2004 I wish you luck ... Lots of luck
Well, let me say that I am fixing for my own use and have not soldered anything yet. I plan on using Summone's fix to prevent re-occurance of same problem. I realized what SMD meant shortly after posting. BTW, I am very good with a soldering iron.
Both units would NOT read any type of media (PS2, CD, DVD)...so, playing with the pots did not make it worse.
Now another question: What is the Rs2002?
clarification...I meant in my original post that I only played with DVD side of laser (and tested with DVD) when adjusting pot.
Google is such a wonderful tool. I answered my own guestion. The RS2004 is the laser driver IC. I think mine is fine since the non melted laser would spin disc and attempt to focus on media in both consoles.
in that case yes you shuld be fine pick up those laser from FL of ebay under $25 shiped is super cheep .. hell get 4 so in anoter 6-12months you can toss in a new one as neede. Or beter yet just fix and flip the suckers and get 2 fat ps2's .
Well, before posting here, I ordered one laser (with block) from RichPSXparts for $35 shipped and one laser head only from Dr. Modchip for $25 shipped. I will check out FL on ebay for future purchases, if needed. Thanks.
David I have some laser blocks coming in soon, should of been here yesterday but I think its stuck in customs, when I finally get it in ill sell you a whole block for $20 plus shipping from NJ. BTW they are pvr-802w's
Good price. I will keep it in mind thanks.
