Hey

Got a problem, I have the pics to post, but am unsure how to. I read you need to put them on a public forum. I have never gone this route to post pics before. I am used to just uploading them. Can you give me a rundown on where to post, and how to link it? Never done it that way before. If needed, I...

spindle has spin again

I changed out ps13, and the drive spins up now. I was lied to about the laser I bought being new, the focusing cap has q-tip material around it, and the pots on the bottom have no reading at all. Maybe this is why the laser is dim? Anyway, I will get another laser and try it to see if I am back in b...

possible problem found

Khat, hi, hope you receive this soon. I believe I may have found the problem, but I don't know. My motherboard is a gh026. The only microfuse on the board that has no continuity through it is at spot ps13. A very small grey colored block soldered on both ends. However, there is a small mystery with ...

I managed to fix one of these

A friend of mine brought me his slimline. It had fell, and hit the floor. The power button wouldn't work anymore. I took it apart, and the microswitch had broken off the board. I found it stuck in the main board metal shroud. I looked it over carefully, and there was enough metal tabs left on the sw...

recieved new laser

Okay, I got the new laser in the mail today. I put it in, and nothing changed. Laser still dim, and no disc spin at all. So, it must be something on the board itself. Any ideas on where to start checking? Please let me know. Thanks, Mike.

Hi, and thanks for replying. I tried the laser from the 50001 in a 39001. It lit up a lot brighter, but wouldn't read. The lens coils are perfect. Both reading in at 4.8 to 5.0 for ohms, so the coils are fine. I am waiting on a new laser to arrive in the mail, and I will try it to see if it takes ca...

Anyway, I took the console apart, and took the top off of the drive. I placed a disc on the spindle, and turned the power on. It spun for a second or two, ...
