Which laser do I need? (Rev.A Samsung SDG-605)
I got this Xbox along with a 2nd one as a lot yesterday. The first one worked but this 2nd one has given me a lot of grief with the laser. I have tried to clean it and then adjust the trimpot on the laser and it still does not work. I have come to the conclusion the laser just can’t be saved.
In addition, I maxed out the trimpot at 3.11 before you can’t adjust it further without getting into damaging levels of power.
Since I’m at a dead end with this Xbox, I need to know which laser I need based on the model provided in the title. I don’t think it matters if I mix up drives in the Xbox as the drives aren’t paired (that or it doesn’t matter as of 2010; AKA Xbox Live V1 shutdown) but I’m not sure - I know my 360 is paired, but I don’t know about the original Xbox. I see more Thompson drives then Samsung and it’s known the Thompson drives have more problems - I’d like to stay with Samsung if at all possible.
Is this a good question?
