Open Tray, Wont Read Discs, The lens goes too far back beyond disc

I have a Philips lite on Disc Drive that the laser seems to go too far back and it reads the outer plastic edge and then gives me open tray error. If i manually move the laser closer it reads then the 2nd time i open/close it does it again. How can i fix this or is replacing the drive the only option? other than the lens not being in the right spot after it is ejected i dunno any other issues.

you can put a washer on the back to keep it from going to far, nobody has ever figured out exactly what causes that to start happening! i think it has something to do with the worm-gear but i usually just put a washer in there!

Yes I've seen it happen too. The worm drive gets out of sync. Replacing the worm drive motor or the washer is the only way to fix it.
