Does anyone know how close the pickup should be to a DVD disk? My DVD ROM drive in my car Navigation system is starting to get read errors, even though the head is clean, and the pickup transport mechanism appears to have a lot of play, which can be adjusted out, but then the spacing between the pickup and disk would change, and need to be re-adjusted (there are adjustment screws for factory alignment).
BUT, how close does the pickup need to be to the DVD disk (without actually touching the disk of course)??????
