Default PS2

So I've been playing PSU on my neighbors PS2, and now he's taken it back. My PS2 that I use for FFXI, is really pissy about reading discs, and now I can't get it to read the PSU disc to play it anymore. Could anyone suggest something I can to do make it work for more than a week? I've tried a cleaning disc, it didn't do anything, I don't have the money to replace it, and the only way I've been able to get it to read, is if I literally open the thing up right down to the lens and swab it with alcohol. But even that only lasts for about a week or so at most before it stops reading again >.<

that would have been my suggestion :(

unless you're able to replace individual parts. lens/laser.

or can afford to send in to sony for manufacturer repair.

Well I've already opened it before and cleaned the lens that way, and it stops reading again about a week later. Since I've opened it, Sony probably wouldn't consider repairing it for me, and like I said, I don't have any money =\

getting repair doesn't have anything to do with warranty. opening it just voids warranty. there's nothing else i can think of unless you have a compatible lens/laser lying around.

ps1 lens might work, but laser would be too weak.

Not so good at "creating" things from parts of other things LoL, guess I'm stuck until I can either replace my PS2, or get some money to repair it. Replacing would probably be better, it's one of the very first models that every came out. I'm surprised it's lasted this long even since I've heard they die after a few years >.>

First release consoles had an issue with them, I think Sony had a policy about them.

Well some good news, my sister got a slimline PS2 for cheap and she's giving me her old full size one which is a year old at most, and it reads discs just fine :D
