I've been using Car wax for years (Turtle Wax is my preference). make sure you get the paste and it has no abbrasives in it. you want it to just fill in the scratches. Apply a thin coat and rub in going across the scratches.. then wave in the air to get totally dry.. then buff off with lint free towel/rag. Works like a charms.. no ill effects to any disc so far (been doing it for ~10 years).

Fisher paykel scratches on front of stainless steel. How do I repair? I see there are repair kits but have to be sure there is no protective coating on the stainless. Is there and if so then what do I do...

If they are shallow scratches you could try using Lemon Pledge... that covered up really small scratches on mine and also stops fingerprints on the stainless steel.

Crc on almost every DVD

A CRC error is a data check - cyclic redundancy check,
Either the DVD discs are dirty or scratched OR the DVD drive needs the laser lens cleaned OR the DVD drive is faulty.
If the DVD discs are scratched you may be able to polish out the scratches with a CD scratch removal kit.
Try cleaning the DVD drive with a CD drive cleaning kit to clean the laser lens.
If none of this works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

It won't play a dvd! and when it does it just sits like it is stopped!!


Eject the DVD from the Cyberhome DVD player. Look over the bottom of the disc. If any dirt and fingerprints are present, remove them with a damp cloth, moving from the inner circle of the DVD to the outside.

Insert the DVD into a scratch repair device, if the DVD has any light scratches (deep scratches are not reparable). Turn on the DVD repair kit and the device literally sands down the scratch. When this is finished, the DVD should work correctly with the Cyberhome DVD player.

Avoid inserting homemade DVDs into the disc drive. The Cyberhome is not compatible with many self-created DVDs, causing a "Disc Read Error" message to appear on the screen.

Spray compressed air into the disc drive of the DVD player. The compressed air removes dust and other debris from the laser and reading lens in the player.

Disk is not working got a big scrach on it


In regards to you having the scratch on the disk most likely this is where your problem is. Unlike a DVD or CD if a game disk will not work if it is too scrached up. The reason for this is most games have there own software they have to load for them to work where with a CD or DVD the data is just being read.

What you can try doing is going to your local game/movie rental place to see if they have a disk buffer to see if they can buff out the scrach. As long as it is not to deep they should be able to fix it.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Home repair of scratches on car door

if the scratch is very shallow, you may be able to rub them off using rubbing compound. otherwise, you will have to match the color of the color and use spray paint to fix the scratch. This is assuming that the car does not have a clear coat. if it does, then I recommend you take it to a body shop.

Scratches on my flat panel tv. can this be fixed ?

You can use a white eraser. Yes a pencil eraser. It will take several minutes. Cleanup with a moist cloth. This should remove the shallow scratches. On deeper scratches some people have used petroleum gel like Vasoline® to fill the scratches.

Conia dvd player problem

Dale, Have you tryed yet to clean the lens surface on the dvd player yet ?? A small build-up of film or dust can make a cd/dvd player's tracking ability to go downhill quit fast. The lens Im talking about it on the Laser Pick-Up assy. Us an approved cleaning disc to do this or take off the top cover and take a small q-tip with just damped with alcohol. Very carefully clean the surface in a circular motion and let dry then clean again with a dry q-tip to get off anything lefyt on the lens. Now for the disc. Those small scratchs can be gotten rid of with a disc resurfacer. The disc resurfacer will work on very minor and shallow scratchs. you can only get rid of them if you dont see any dark inside the scratch or you can barley feel the scratch with your thumb nail. If the cleaning dosent assist you then the unit will neeed a tracing/focus alighnment and thi is something you cannot do unles you have an alighnment/service manual and the proper equipment-ie scope & alighnment disc's. Good Luck
