I'm sure it's more than just light :-)

BTW Mick what is the 8 legged chip attached to the plastic screen ?

The PS1 is protected against the use of copied CDs. This chip overrides the protection, you often find it in units bought on ebay. I generally recommend to remove these chips. See also

Ok, here is the bridgerectifier (D001) in detail:

I guess, four pieces of BYV96e will do a better job.


You better check the PCB for those anti-protection chips:

And here's the Mitsumi SR670, coming from my SCPH-1001.

No, there's not enough light. There was just the flash and 3x 75w halogens(Pointing at other places in the room)

For Audio CDs, the modchip is just an unuseful extra.

Light IS a big factor, the cam is an other one.


Sorry, limited by the max. upload size (256 colors)

I suppose spoy protected CD's like Coldplay's one won't work in them?

I tried the CD on a PC CDROM drive and it skips a bit every few seconds.

I have some copy protected CDs and they run without problems.

Also I should say that the anti-protection chips are only needed to run copies of GAMES. Copies of normal music CDs run without the chip. Of course the PS1 can not read CD RW formats, as these were developed after the PS1.

You should tell that it's for games only. For CDA, it's just a standard CDP. Note that some CDs might have a data track for the first track so don't think it's some copy-protection, skip it.

The modchips are also used in newer consoles to get region-free DVDs.

The first version SMPS board is dark brown, has a grey transformer on it, and rectification is done by an IC instead of four diodes as in the later version.
If you look at my pic, it's using a grey transformer, the PCB is light brown and rectification is done with 4 separate diodes.

In DAE(Thru data cable), spdif(separate wire) or analog(separate wire)?

Some CDPs are just not able to read in normal mode some CDs and some have poor DAE performance. It depends of the drive mostly. Some are able to read some copy-protection formats and others not.
