So, i have been working on xbox 360's for about 3 years now, I came across one that was running fine then started having reading problems(this was the original problem) I ordered a new laser... The laser Orig in it is a SF-HD63 laser and i tried replacing it with a new laser, The new laser i got was a SF-HD67S laser which i had originally ordered a HD67 laser(no S) It doesnt read anything with the new laser... Does anyone know what the S version is? is it compatible with a TS-H943? I have only seen this version of the HD67 on british and chinese sites... Surely a laser isnt region specific(only uk boxes can use the S version blah blah blah).... The old version still works... just crappy... Just so you know i did a pot calibration and removed the anti-static... im not a tard thank you... Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Another thought as well... Could the SF-HD67S be only compatible with a certain version of the TS-H943? The drive is a MS25... Could it be that its only compatible with a MS28 or later?

No one has dealt with these lasers? I may have been working on these for 3 years but there has to be someone out there that has dealt with these

The 63 and 67 can not be interchanged.

I have never seen a 360 that came with a 67 laser. I have been told that some early Hitachi's used that laser.

You are going to have to get the correct laser. I have no idea what it is that makes the two lasers different however.

Aight.... this has been kinda a grey area... alot of peeps say that the HD63 and HD67 are interchangeable .....Most say they arent.... and then you have the HD67S... rofl.. guess im screwed... time to find a another laser

on the new laser you installed , did you remove the anti static link ?

ie did you remove the blob of solder that stops static damage in transport ?

and I know you said you have , check it .....
