No one fixes things for free, since your warranty is over. You need to pay.

Unless something has changed recently they don't charge you to fix a laser that can't read dual layer discs, warranty or otherwise. For any other problem you would usually have to pay. NoA historically had great customer service and sometimes they would fix things for free anyway.
