I have a Sony MDF15W drive that has reading problems and I'm suspicious that it may have lost alignment somehow, perhaps during vigorous cleaning operations.

The whole head assembly is held at alignment just by one philips screw, but if that screw is loose there is no obvious base for alignment nor any progressive alignment adjustment visible. Is there any proven technique for checking/adjusting alignment on this type of drive? Some sort of micrometer screw tool maybe?
