Got a question on cd drives and lasers
01/22/20 02:08 AM




Ok it's awhile but I've been trying to get my sega cd model 1 console up and running.

First it had a blown fuse and power board so I replaced that. Cd drive wouldn't spin, got that working, laser grinding gears at the end of travel is fixed so I'm down to 1 known last problem.

I've got everything running and running quite but it won't read the disc. Soooo my question is that I have it apart enough were I can run it without the cover. Should I be able to see the laser light up? Should I see a glow off of the bottom of the disc? Even in the dark I see no lighting either around the laser pod or the bottom of the disc.

Wasn't sure if in order to see the laser light you would have to look at it directly.

If there should be light then I'd say the laser is junk....

Thanks guys !


Only here to annoy...
