How to Fix a Scratched CD

Clean the disc. Even if a CD isn’t actually scratched or scuffed, dust, oil, and other surface contaminants can prevent it from playing properly. Thus cleaning the disc should always be your first move. Ads by Google

Fix It Scratch RemoverRepairs Scratches Like Magic! As Seen on TV. Guaranteed.
  • Run warm water over the damaged disc to remove dust.
  • If there is stubborn dirt or grease on the disc, gently rub it with your finger while you are washing it, and use a gentle detergent or liquid soap (with the water) or rubbing alcohol (in place of water). Any time you rub or wipe a CD, you should do so by starting at or near the center of the disc and rubbing straight outward toward the edge to prevent further scratching.
  • Shake the water off and let the disc air-dry (do not dry it with a towel or cloth, and don't sun-dry it either).
  • 2Try to play the disc. Many times a good cleaning is all that is needed. If, however, problems persist after cleaning, try to play the disc in a different CD player. Some players handle scratches better than others; computer CD drives and car stereos tend to be the best.
  • 3Burn a new disc. If you can get the CD to work in one CD player - especially your computer’s - but not in others, try burning a new disc. The CD burner on your computer may be able to read the CD well enough to produce a perfect copy. You may wish to try this even if the CD doesn’t play correctly on the computer.
  • 4Locate the scratch. Actually repairing the disc will be easier if you can figure out where the offending scratch is. Visually inspect the CD’s playing surface for scratches or scuffs. Scratches that run perpendicular to the CD’s spiral - that is, those that run generally from the center to the rim - may

    Removing scratches from CD/DVD discs.

    CD jumps all over the place? DVD film stops playing and picture breaks up or freezes then goes to another scene? Just bought a second hand disc and it does that? Then you might have got a scratch or more on the disc. Well now you don't have to throw them in the bin and buy a new one. And it won't cost a penny to fix them!!!! Unless you have false teeth!!

    It's easy to fix them too. First look at the underside of the disc, remember the label side doesn't play anything. You might need to catch it in the light to show any marks. If you can see marks and they won't come off with the cleaning sprays you can get for discs, it's a scratch!
    To remove them get a tube of TOOTHPASTE - yes that's what I said! And apply a small amount to the discs where any scratches are. Then with a toothbrush, soft bristle type, gently work the paste on the disc. This should remove the mark. Rinse with cold water and dry the disc off with a paper cloth. If you look at it again catching the light, the disc should show no sign of the mark, but you will see like a smudge in the polished surface. This will not affect the playing of the CD or DVD. If you still can see a scratch repeat the process till it goes.
    Once finished clean the disc with a spray or the JML disc cleaner, to remove any trace of the cleaning process.

    This process will only remove surface scratches from the plastic coat of the disc, anything deeper and the disc is no good.
    If the disc has a paper label (IE home made) you will have to ensure that the label doesn't get wet, or you might have to replace the label.

    I have cleaned many discs this way and so far they still all play wonderful.
    I don't know if you can do this with Blue-Ray discs, as I don't have one yet.

    CDS slipping when playing.

    Try the disc in another CD / DVD player.

    It is important to make sure that the DVD itself is the problem, and not the CD / DVD player.

    Cleaning a CD / DVD player is a much more intricate process that requires device-cleaning hardware.

    Lay the disc artwork-side down so that you can easily clean the playing side.

    You should always avoid setting a disc playing-side down to prolong its lifespan.

    Gently rub the disc with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove all traces of dust and fingerprints. Always rub a disc from the center toward the outer rim in a light motion to prevent any other damage.

    Apply a light amount of toothpaste to a cotton wool ball and gently rub the disc from the inside out.

    You may need a few drops of water to make the toothpaste spread easily.

    Cover the entire surface area of the disc, or at least the area that is scratched.

    Toothpaste is a gentle abrasive that works well for fixing simple scratches.

    Clean off the toothpaste with the cloth, once again rubbing from the inside of the disc toward the rim.

    Try not to push too hard to prevent further damage.

    Apply other kinds of light abrasives such as baking soda or glass cleaner if the sound is still distorted.

    Remove the solution with the same gentle rubbing technique.

    Purchase a disc-cleaning spray from a local video or electronics store.

    These sprays are effective in removing any grime from the disc and filling small scratches.

    hope this helps

    When I go to insert a disc it only goes halfway in and then it comes out

    Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.

    · Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.

    · Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.

    Fifa 09 football problem. telling me to clean disc as it is unreadable i am cleaning the disc and restarting the console but it keeps telling me to clean the disc.

    One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:
    a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
    b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
    Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
    And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
    The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
    NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
    You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
    Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

    After inserting a disc the dvd goes into the machine, the menue box on the tv screen changes to loading, stays on loading for a short time then pushes the dvd back out. The machine never changes to play.

    the dvd player is unable to read the disc. either the disc is scratched and cannot be read or the player needs cleaning. cleaning discs are available pretty much anywhere. sometimes simply blowing into the area when the tray is open can temporarily fix the problem.

    Loading Problem

    No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems

    Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
    Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
    Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
    Also low electrical current is a major problem too

    Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems

    Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.

    If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.

    Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer

    Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.
