    Default Okay I got an SCPH-1001

    Okay, I got an SCPH-1001, and i have 2. One is made July 1995 and one is made July 1996.
    They both have shitty KSM-440-ACM and AAM modules on them so is it possible to replace them with a KSM-440-AEM since i don't have a BAM.
    Also is it possible without adjusting BIAS and GAIN.

    While it is fun and interesting to discuss and share knowledge on videogame forums, there are always times when it seems someone wants other people to do their homework for them.

    No you need to calibrate everything as it is rare for you to drop a new laser in and have it work 100%. I managed to do it just once fitting a 101's entirely assembly into a 1001. The lasers are all compatible with each other's model some being better picks than others but the ribbon length and shape varies. Best to remove the laser from one and install it into the assembly of your target PS1.

    If you don't calibrate it you run the risk of it:

    1) Not working at all
    2) Getting fried
    3) Working poorly

    There are YouTube videos on the topic and if you have a multimeter (and you should even if you're just casually working with electronics) it's pretty trivial to pull off even if you have no clue what you're doing.
    I fix things. You name it, I'll work on it. Want something modded? Recapped?

    What would get fried if not calibrated? Because i calibreated it with a mulitmeter. Are you saying that it's required to adjust bias and gain

    Excessive power to the laser will cause it to burn out prematurely.
