You can try adjusting the laser to see if you can get the last amount of life from it.

There's a pot adjusting guide here: ***********.cyber-mag.com/station/laserPS2.htm

Could just be the laser arm, they are a very very commone fault on ps2. But easy enough to replace and cheap. A new laser arm is only a couple of quid plus postage on ebay, but if you need a new laser thats gonna be about twenty quid plus postage. Check out ebay for cheap spares for ps2's. They also have loads of repair manuals available.
