Great unit, no problems until recently when the right side of the screen edge became a dark "dirt" colored smudge, about 3 inches thick, now, another "smudge" across the bottom half. the bulb is relatively new and have not had any problems

Sometimes disk read problems arise when there are scratches/smudges on the surface(reading area).
Try giving it a clean, from the centre out to the edge, with a clean, soft cloth, then try again.
You could also try the disk in another PS2 to see if it's your hardware that is the problem. If it repeats in another machine, the disk itself is faulty, otherwise you might just need to get hold of a cd/dvd lens cleaner disk, run that, and see if it solves the problem.
Hope that helps.

you only get about half of the fluid when u change-the rest of the old stays in the torque converter--since its so dirty u cud doit again until it clears--do not flush it with a machine-it will disable it cause dirt will get into the valve body and become stuck
This is a known issue with the unit that you have. It is called an LCD tab bonding defect. If you want to try to repair it, you need to get the unit apart so that you can access the edge of the lcd panel. Power it on and observe the picture and then press the edges of the display and see if you can locate the point that the edge has the defect. If you can locate that point then you have 2 options, Uncovering that point as best that you can and using a heat gun to attempt to reflow the connections OR you can find something to clamp that point and hope that it holds, otherwise you are going to have to pay for a new screen. You cannot order it yourself because they wont ship to you.

Where best to look will depend a little on the nature of the smudge.
If what you're looking at is white, then you might just have a little heap of toner or paper dust on part of the LED array that paints the picture onto the photoconductor drum (look for a narrow unit that stretches full width, adjacent to the drum.
Dark marks may, if you're lucky, be down to dirt on charger wires.
Both respond well to cleaning with a vacuum and a soft cloth (be very gentle if cleaning the wires).
I would be inclined to trust the existing photoconductor unit unless you know it's been abused (e.g. by leaving it lying around in daylight) or the coating on the drum is visibly damaged.
