V12 problem with laser
V12 problem with laser –
Received a ps2 to fix for someone today. Apparantly its the second laser thats died. The guy said the Summ0ne fix had been applied, which I thought strange at the time.
Anyway, opened it up and the guy had put a 560Kohm resistor instead of a 560 Ohm resistor. That explains why theres been 2 dead lasers. I put the correct resistor in and put a brand new laser in.
Laser is having great difficulty reading a disc still, tried 3 different brand new lasers. I don't know how to describe it, but it sounds a bit like when you get a dead LA on a v9/v10.
It has booted the odd game but very slowly and after much chew.
I can't see 3 lasers being faulty so is there anything else that I should be checking?
check all the resistors where u do summone's fix - maybe one of them is toasted.
I've checked the two that were soldered to and they still measure the corrrect 30.1 Kohm.
now apply new RF2004fs shuld be all good.
