how do you know this please?

if this is so then its not something you can fix yourself.

new cd burners are cheap would probally cost more to repair it than to buy new.

New rewriters from about £25 upwards - but, as huggyg71 asks, just exactly how do you know the laser is misaligned.

It takes a qualified repair technician using special equipment to test and, if necessary, realign lasers as the read/write gap is very, very tiny...:-)
