My ps2 has begun refusing to play my backups on dvdr. When I do a certain swaptrick with my big TOC game, it just makes a sound like ... "I don't care, I'm not reading that dvdr". Then I get the RED SCREEN OF DEATH.
I have had all the extra equipment in my ps2 checked, and it should work flawlessly. My ps2 boots everything except dvdr backups. I have tried fumbling with the white cog and the small screw to the left of the laser, but no luck. They are now back in default position.
A relative of mine is an electronics guru, and I'm hoping that he would be able to calibrate the laser using the pots. I have read in this forum that touching the pots is a no-no. What if you are an experiented technician? Wouldn't that qualify you as good enough to try out the pots? What effect would the pots handling give?
Sould I buy a new laser, and if I do that am I supposed to calibrated it or do you just plug it in? I tought about buying a different kind of accessori for the ps2. You know the kind that would boot a dvdr with no probs. Perhabs the laser will try harder to find the dvdr backup that way, like when it's searching for a cdr backup or and original dvd movies and games.
nahh, if you buy a new laser
all you have to do is remove the solder from the 2 sets of pads.
it should be set-up to the correct default values.
ive fitted may a laser and they work first time .
easy on the ps2
3 little screws and the ribbon.
Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
