Increase the Laser Lens voltage by screwing the orange voltage screw clockwise 35 degrees. this orange laser lens voltage screw is located above the laser assembly inside the console. You will have to take the case off the console.

Re: console not reading disk
Well...what can i say....it should be a laser unit problem, open your saturn and pull the flat cable and reconect again...try laser adjust..or it can be more easier than you think..try to check the Sensor button ,if it´s broken, it can´t activate the laser unit, so that´s why it´s not reading...
Sorry my bad english...if the problem persists call me in msn: email@example.com good luck!

if ita a cartridge game machine it could be dirty contacts on the game or console , try cleaning with an electrical contact cleaner on a cotton bud or small paint brush ( dont use any water ) the cleaner should be the type that evaporates almost immediately , hope this helps
This could be a situation where the Laser Lens voltage is off and it is not reading CDs. I have had this before.
You will have to take your case off, and look for a little orange "screw" or "dial" which is just above the cable that connects the laser assembly to the circuit board. It might have a Philips head looking top.
Make sure the system is off and unplugged before doing this.
Turn the orange screw approx 35 degrees clockwise, and the reassemble the system. This should give the laser enough juice to start reading the discs again.
If this is not the solution, it is possible your clock battery is dead. Buy a new CR2032 3Volt battery from wal-mart or your local watch store, and pop it into your top right (on the back of the system) compartment to fix this.
Uh... what kind of tv cord are you using? Does it hook up to the cable or is it just the Comp. Video? (Red, white, and yellow plugs) If it hooks up to the cable than the RF unit(a.k.a.-the tv cable) is probably shot; buy a new cable (you can find them on ebay). If it's the other one, it still may be broken, but it's less likely. Just try replacing the TV cable and if that doesn't work, just buy a new system.
