From the experience I have had opening several players, I have never seen a problem with the grease,
aside from looking like there might be too much, but better to have too much than not enough I guess.
You can take a q-tip and swab the grease around a little more if it looks like it needs to be, especially up and down the rails,
making sure that the rails are nice and covered all over. (covered as in "ultra thin layer", not "gobs of grease")
You can also examine it to make sure there is nothing embedded in the grease like hair or other junk that can cause the mechanism to stutter or stick.
If you add more of your own grease, just make sure it's LITHIUM GREASE.
Like I said though, most times it won't even need attention.
The affects of lithium grease should last for many many years, decades even, so it's not a matter of it drying out,
you just want to make sure that it is being applied to the rails properly.
