Introduzione

If your PlayStation is having trouble reading discs, the optical drive may need to be replaced. The optical drive is prone to fail on earlier models due to plastic rails warping over time. This guide will take you through the process of replacing the optical drive, which includes the laser and motor assemblies.

Note: This repair is demonstrated on a SCPH-1001 model. The process may differ slightly if you have a later model.

Conclusione

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Laser Drive Models

SCPH-100x : KSM-440AAM and KSM-440ACM

SCPH-550x-700x : KSM-440ADM

SCPH-750x-900x : KSM-440AEM

SCPH-10x : KSM-440BAM

Chances are most, if not all of the original AAM and ACM lasers are worn out.

Some vendors still carry an supposed original KSM-440BAM laser unit only.

I could not make this laser work in a SCPH-1001 unit, even after the transfer of parts.

I heard a rumor of spacers and motherboard adjustment.

This: https://web.archive.org/web/201010090109...

PU-8 test point: CL708, voltage reading to ground without disk - 1.7 volts DC, voltage reading with disk 1.85 volts DC.

Very fine adjustment… I have yet to try this step. Has anyone?

What about spacers? Do I need these?

You must transfer the rubber grommets and the plastic laser cover from the old laser to the new.

If you don’t, the new laser will be too large for the SCPH-1001 chassis.

What about model SCPH-5501?

Will a KSM-440BAM optical drive from a scph-1001 ps1 work with a scph-1001 ps1 that had a KSM-440ACM optical drive?
