Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
If your DVD player, cd player or any console or unit that uses a compact disc begins to skip intermittently, please before wasting money on a disc cleaner or any sort of solution, try to clean the laser eye manually.
To do so, remove the cover of the device that’s you wish to clean, once you have done that, you may be able to locate the laser eye without any more dies-assembly, if not, dies-assemble the laser eye housing or what ever it is that’s restricting access, please make sure to note, either with a diagram or marking with a coloured marker what screw came from where and how to re-assemble the unit.
Once you have done that, simply clean the laser with a soft clean cue tip or a cotton bud, the style used to clean ears with. After wiping , check with a magnifying glass for any traces of dirt or grime.
Once satisfied with its appearance, put it all back together and if the discs now play easily and no skips are found, the problem was a dirty laser lens. Good Luck.
