I want to ask wd-40 white lithium grease is good for ps2 slim lazer mechanism?for greasing.
Wondered for a second if you wanted to spray classic WD40 around the place.
Anyway do you really need to regrease the rails the laser rides on? I don't know that I have ever had to do that for a PS2, or indeed almost any optical drive that was not seriously caked in nastiness (cigarette smoke is unpleasant for electronics as well).
If for some reason you have degreased the rail or otherwise determined it needs to run a bit smoother then yeah it should work. Spray some into a small rag and wipe it on the rail and run it back and forth a few times, possibly repeating after that when you have some in the bearing surface part of the laser.
i do it with a cotton swab.thanks
your from grease, why do you have to ask at all.
I just asked if this grease does.
The downside of WD-40 is that it's a dust magnet. Maybe you're better of with some bike chain grease.
I finally put permatex white lithium grease.this is dust magnet to? I don't put wd-40.
WD40 (which, by the way, means "water displacer", one of its advertised uses and one that it's better at than an oil) is not a good lubricant, because it evaporates quickly and usually leaves things stickier than nothing
You probably chose right
I did well that I put permatex? This is dust magnetic to?
Re WD40. I love the stuff (I don't wear perfume but would make an exception for one that smelled like it) but the OP did specifically state white lithium which is one of the various other sprays they branched out into. Such things are pretty similar to what you would get if you opened many an optical drive and sampled the stuff on the rails that the laser rides on.
As far as grease being a dust magnet (by the way dust magnet is a phrase to mean it attracts things -- you might see fingerprint magnet, filth magnet, fly magnet, grease magnet, tourist magnet, babe magnet...). All grease is a dust magnet really, some worse than others and in most cases it is more that someone puts some on, gets it on their fingers and thus gets it everywhere else inside something and then you end up with dust sticking in interesting places. You are not going to open it up and find a bunch of iron filings in there.
