Pot Tweaking the Thomson Tgm600 Dvd Drive

Recommended Posts

Video tutorial on how to pot tweak the Thomson TGM600 DVD drive found in the Original Xbox. It is recommended to have an ohm meter so you can see your adjustments before powering the drive back up.

what is the use in Tweaking the pots in the drives? Does it help the laser read the disc better or something?

For a short time... until it burns out.

Ah. I wonder if it would help the Philips drive I have?

Yeah it can if done right. Just remember, VERY slight touches of the potentiometer make HUGE adjustments. You don't need to reduce the resistance all that much to make a difference. It's harder than it seems.

Thanks man, Will give it a look and do a little research before i try it myself. i have like 3 or 4 dead Thompson drives laying around. Maybe i can bring some life back to one of them for a little while.
