Default bad laser or bad install?

sponsored links
V3 messiah 2, boots cd-r fine. dvd-r the screen goes black as if its just about to display "playstation 2" but instead goes onto the browser screen and says ps2 disc (a gold one, so it knows its a dvd) any ideas?? ive ran a lens cleaning disc though it no difference.

i dont think its had that much use, the heatsink wasnt stuck to the bottom of the board like they usually are.

shall i open it up, or shall i put it down to a bad laser??

PS, would having one diode cause this, or does that cause the red screen?

Sounds like a bad install mate. Check especially the bios points, it could be that one is the wrong way round ( wrong point A-B e.t.c... )

I've had a similair fault on a machine myself and it was just a crossed point. Cd's booted fine.

Yep, as spagoll says, check them points, also clean around with some flux cleaner or check for dry joints. Make sure you are using some flux or solder paste.

Definitely a bad install, check out the points. I am assuming that you have already tried playing PS2 originals as well?
