MZ-E90 squeaking when seeking. Should I attempt a repair?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a used MZ-E90, and it's working except for kind of loud squeak that happens when it's seeking. It's a bit alarming.

After some testing, it looks like the squeak happens when the laser returns all the way to home (closest to the center of the player.)

I'm wondering if i should pop it open and see if the mechanism that moves the laser needs lubrication or something.

Ok. I'll see if that becomes necessary. 

I put a tiny amount of Tri-Flow on the lead screw and made it seek back and forth a few times. Haven't had a squeak since this morning.
