v12 laser syndrome –
I've got a unmodded v12 unit with a melted laser. All fuses tested ok. All resistors in the tracking area test ok too. replaced the laser with a new one. now when turning on the ps2 the laser moves up and down, but there is no spinning or redeye. could the rs2004 be faulty?
i also have a v12 with all fuses and resistors ok that dosnt spin or move but it dose shine red could this also be the rs2004
looks like we might be in the same boat - is it gonna be worth replacing the rs2004 - i see its like $20. after replacing that and the laser it might be better to buy a new unit. your not even sure replacing the rs2004 will fix the problem
the V12 laser sindorme is caused by a faulty power pack which over suppies the console with to much power causing it to fry. You can check if you have a console affected by checking your serial number of your power pack with sony website. I asked sony if my console is affected by the so called v12 laser sindrome and the guy on the phone said in all cases it was a bad power pack. I also checked my brothers v12 console it was a bad one and sony sent out a new one.
i dont think the laser sindrome was caused by the power pack fault. that was a seperate problem that caused some packs to melt.
Still check the power pack as im intrested to see if it is one on the many packs sony made for the v12
mine wanst the pack coz i did it by not pitting the metal shealding on without the screws to test it and as it booted the something happned which made it turn staright off since then iv not been able to play disks but can play of HD. And i sent my pack back ages ago lol
first i've heard about the power pack as well.
a update on my progress - replaced the rs2004, the laser and all of the resistors. The bugger still doesn't want to spin. Looks like its time for the scrap pile
