    A friend of mine has a ps2 that stopped reading discs, and I told him I would open it up and see if it was something simple since the warrenty was over. I also just remembered that opening a ps2 was a pain in the ass. Anyone think theres a chance its just a dirty laser that can be cleaned?

    Aren't DVD lens cleaner disc thingies fairly cheap? Might aswell get one and give it a clean anyway.

    My PS2 occasionally refuses to read the disc I just put in, and a quick cleaning seems to help.

    Also, if you opened it up what would you be looking for?
    It's hot in Topeka.
