So, I recently bought a used SCPH-39001.
After doing some tests, it seems the laser is not working as it should: it doesn't read PS1 CDs, PS2 CDs/DVDs; however it seems to read (sometimes) DVD-Rs (yes, it has a modchip; not sure which one though).
I've seen (supposedly) original KHS-400C lasers in MercadoLibre (local eBay) and eBay for over USD 50, which is plain crazy.
So, I'll go with a generic/clone laser.
My questions are:
1-I've read there's a KHS-400M laser. Would that be compatible? (I don't think so, but I thought I'd ask)
2-Any suggestions to look for when buying a generic laser?
3-Can anyone provide a picture of an original KHS-400C laser? (I'm suspecting the one in my PS2 is not original)
4-Any suggestions as to where to get the laser from?
Thanks in advance.
