    if u are having problems with your ps2 lens. send it back to sony they will do it for free. i almost forgot to tell u something. sony will only do it for free if the model number and serial number is old. like u brought your sony 4 years ago or 3

    i have a v7 that i bought back in 2002 so does that exclude me? i got a flip-top on it so does that make me ineligible again cause the seal is broken?

    Okay lets take it from the top, for one if you get disk read errors, its not because your laser is "dirty" its because your laser is out of alignment. Ive had 5 people in my school have disk read errors and have paid me 20 bucks each to fix the problem... not too hard at all. All you need to do is remove all the screws from the bottom.. . slide the case of and dont yank out the eject ribbion... now take off the top of the cd drive with a small jewlers screw and pull the tray out... you will need to remove two small screws in the front of the tray to do so. So you will find a small white gear in the back of the tray.... take a sharpie and note the position by marking it where it touches a metal tab on the left hand side of the gear... turn the gear counter clockwise to raise it up.. go up about 2 clicks per try, reassemble it and try the disks out.. if they dont work... raise it up 2 more clicks.
