Are PS2 Slim lasers harmful?

I heard of something like that when the lasers start to fail.

In any case, can the lasers of a PS2 system become harmful, especially when it wears out?

Hello.:)

Laser for CD-players,Video Game devices,PC CD/DVD drives and similar listed in the Laser class rating 1.
Safe (due to low power or protective housing)

If they "wears out" the contrary is happening,the reading performance drops and gets worse.

If they are harmful ? i am not a Laser scientist but my personal Thoughts: NO.:)

Well, I won't take it apart, turn on the console and look at the lens, and the laser are not emitted when in use.

Just a quick confirmation: if I treat my PS2 Slim the regular way (i.e. not taking it apart), then I should be all right? T/F?

You should never look straight into a laser diode that has power on it.
No matter the weakness of the laser.

That being said, no, there's no way for a PS2 Slim laser to be harmful unless you're looking straight at the diode.

Closing this now before it turns into a EOF shitfest.
