It appears that it's only the Germans that are hiking their prices up...at the moment anyway!
I went into my local "GAME" store. I asked if they had any old Playstations and they said they had dozens in the back which they had taken in part exchange over the years. I got the feeling that they had quite a few, though I specified I wanted only one with RCA's.

Worth trying ?

Moin Dommi,


you are right, Ive another cd-drive in mind. Controlling the PS1, I have to agree.

@Lostcause: Yes, cause there was a rave review in a magazine and constant promotion from Auditorium 23.

Hi @all,
i had a little bit of time the last days so i could work a little bit at my PS. I have 6 new Laserunits here. On 5 units the distance between CD clamp and motor is 0,3 mm. Only at one KSM 440 BAM the distance is 0,6 mm. Why ? Because i have a metal clamp. It depens on what metal clamp you have. At my clamp with no holes 0,3 mm it not possible. If you have a clamp with the big holes, or the plastic clamp than 0,3 mm is right.
Than i checked my Bias and Gain Adjust : Values : Bias 1,56 Gain 1,76 V. Now i tryed all units with a verry problematic CD. I know that if the PS is able to play the last tracks of this CD she will play all other CD's too. All laserunits haven't had any problem with the CD.Than i tryed other CD's with same results !
I than measured the lasergain and the results are :

Laserunit AAM 11,4 mV
Laserunit ACM 24,4 mV
Laserunit ADM 24,4 mV
Laserunit BAM 11,4 mV

I was verry bemused because i had one laserunit ACM with 24,4 mV and one with 11,4 mV. ??????????
Than i saw it !!! The lable on the laserunit with 11,4 mV was a fake !!! I saw the guide of the unit is made of plastik !! So the unit is a AAM unit with wrong lable !!! I looked at the HP www.playfidelity.com and i acknowledged my presumption. Look at the pictures below. So my first statment zhaz all units with short kopper cable have 11,4 mV Gain is wrong ! The correct values are shown above.

Anyone has a dead transport?

I just need the pinched gear to make mine working!

BTW, when I got my PSX it was set to the values that were on Mick's website.

Here the picture of the original ACM unit. If you have a unit labled ACM but a guide made of plastic, than you have a AAM unit and the lable is only a fake !!

Got to be worth a try jives, though they will probably want more than an unsuspecting e-bayer......no harm in asking though?

I was charged 9.97 (!?) for an SCPH 1002 + one controller + UHF connector. I got the feeling that the price was made up at the descretion on the local store manager

Not that bad really, it's about what I paid...in fact both of mine were more including the delivery costs.
Nice one!
9.97!!!...Salesmen! If he'd said a tenner you would have taken it anyway!

Hi

Both my 1002 PS1 playstations seem to have bits missing
from the central spindle. It seems to be a habit of Sony Units
with ball bearing clamps to shed bit of plastic. How critical
is it? They seem very light bits of material and I wonder
how badly spindle balance is upset. Otherwise tracking on
both units seems good. At AUD$39 each they did not break the bank.

Regards

AnthonyPT
