DVD Slider maintenance
DVD Slider maintenance –
Hi there, I understand that part of the cleaning process of a PS2 would be to clean the DVD tray, unit and lense of any dust and hair that may have accumulated in it. Additionally, it is recommended that one should "lubricate" the tray slider while you're at it. What type of lubricant should be used? White lithium grease? Oil? WD40?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I've seen all of the above, but I would try either lithium (no experience) or silicon grease (worked for me).
silicon grease is usually used for gears (i believe)
Don?t use WD40!!! It evaporates and makes things worse in the long run. Plus it?s a solvent and will soften the plastic parts. The only thing WD40?s good for is cleaning sticker adhesive and such and then you must thoroughly clean off the WD40.
So a silicon grease is the concensus so far for the slider? It does appear to be metal and slides in and out of a metal fitting.
Yes WD40 was a redherring. Great for light duty adhesive removal.
Thanks for the advice!
