PS2 Lasers always die on me. Any hope?

Hello, I bought a premodded ps2 v12 slim, and had my old one modded as well big v4. But eventually the laser just dies on them. They stop playing back ups then eventually originals. Sometimes but rarely I can reset it a bunch of times and it will boot. I use high quality media. But my ps2s only seem to last a year at most. Any Suggestions?

Though on the big one I might just have to clean the lens. That is what the guy I sent it to to get fixed said was the only problem the last time it wouldn’t work. Any advice before I engage into that as well?

The laser should really last longer than a year but first try cleaning the lens if that doesn’t fix it you can buy replacement laser units.

Ok, I will try that. Thank you for the fast reply.
