Replacing PSTwo(v12) Laser

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I heard you have to desolder something to make the new laser work. I compared my original(dead) laser with the new one I bought and it has a big lump of metal on a chip. I'm guessing this is what I have to desolder?

I don't have a soldering iron or anything like that so I'm kinda screwed if that is the method to get this laser working!

when you replace the laser, you replace the whole laser unit, not just a single piece....
but you have to buy the correct one

I know that. I replaced the whole drive block which includes the motor and the laser unit.

New but non-working


Old with burnt out laser


The problem is that the disk doesn't spin when I put it in the drive and close the lid. I'm guessing the laser doesn't see the disk so the motor doesn't turn on. I've tried the new motor with the old laser and vice versa.

did you replace it with the correct unit? they are model specific, as for the glob of solder i dont think that should be there. lmg, you bought it on ebay? tell them you want a replacment, this one doesnt work

As far as I know, v12 only has one type of laser and this SHOULD work. I bought it off someone who bought it from www.divineo.com about a year ago. He says it's brand new and he's never done anything to it. Fixed his PS2 without replacing the laser so he sold it to me.

I guess I can ask divineo about it

Before using it, please desolder the ESD protection point first (refer to the picture for the position).Antistatic point can be desolder upon request.
From Ebay. I guess I was right
