I've been told to clean the lens, but if it reads the cd and recorded copy why should i clean the lens? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Anonymous April 5, 2010 10:58:45 PM Try opening the case and cleaning the laser (disconnect from power wall socket first) . I use a cotton bud and a simple alcohol or propanol. Avoid pressure on the lens mechanism by holding the cotton bud at the far end. Dry off the same way after applying. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
