Resetting the BIAS AND GAIN POTS on the PU-7/PU-8-11 board.

Hi all, I have an SCPH-1001 from August 1995 that i accidentally touched the BIAS AND GAIN pots on. It's the one with the pots from a PU-7 which can be confusing. Here is a picture on what i mean on those type of pots: POT (VA2).PNG This is the POT of a later SCPH-1001 which is so easy to work on: f...

Re: What is the best PS1 model to have?

Thank goodness for the higher votes on SCPH-7501. The reason i rage quit the SCPH-1001 because they were always skipping no matter what even with a good laser installed. In my case, I had a PU-8-11 board that had different pots from an SCPH-1000 that were not the same as the PU-8-21 to 23 and it mad...

Re: What is the best PS1 model to have?

Resurfacing will help, but what it comes down to is the quality of the deck itself and optics in the drive. It also needs to be calibrated. It's a real pain though since you need an analog oscilloscope to calibrate it correctly. I'm sorry Shadow, but what is the best PS1 model to have that is not a...

Re: What is the best PS1 model to have?

SCPH-100x with a new laser, modchip and PSIO. Hi Shadow, Okay, So SCPH-100x is the way to go then? I have a BAM laser though i might do that. Also do you think resurfacing discs might help? Also would a clean disc and a clean laser improve your lifespan of your PS1? With some scratches discs depend...

What is the best PS1 model to have?

Hi everyone, I'm in the process of reparing an SCPH-1001 that i have coming in the mail. It's one made August 1995 with an -11 board where it has the audio swap method and i'm planning on swapping the AAM with a superior BAM laser. Notice any differences between the PU-8-11 (Early US 1995 PU-8 with ...

Re: My SCPH-1001 should be coming soonCan i use the PS1 slim

Today i bought another SCPH-1001 made August 1996 and i noticed it has the more reliable metal KSM-440-ACM lens assembly instead of plastic since it doesn't sit lower. Is the metal ACM reliable the same way as the BAM? The specific problem with the plastic frame wearing was fixed on those ACMs with...

Good news guys, I got an 1001 going with the Mulitmeter and KSM-440-BAM pulled from a PSone. It made it better. Is 18.57 or higher good enough?
