Hello opie440,

The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

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

  • 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

    Your disc may need refinishing. There are many cleaners available at most retail stores. You would need to find one that buffs the "shiny" side of the disc to a smooth polish. If the scratches are too deep or the disc has been subjected to high heat, the data itself could be damaged. In either of those cases, you would have to buy a new disc.

    Disc won't play


    As the Wii uses discs that can be scratched, dirty, or otherwise damaged -- it's important to first check the disc.

    Look for fingerprints or other smudge marks. If you have dirty marks on the disc, you can wash it off with regular dish soap and water. Not too much soap though. Make sure you dry it off with something very soft [like a microfiber cloth] before you put it back into your Wii.

    Second -- scratches will stop a disc from playing... or the disc will play until it gets to the scrached section then give you an error. Check and make sure there are not too many -- or deep scraches.

    If a scratched game won't play through but other games play just fine -- chances are the disc is bad. However, if nothing is playing through on your Wii, not even a new game, there is a problem with the Wii's DVD drive. There is a laser in the drive that reads discs -- and many other moving parts in there. The following website sells the Wii DVD drives. It's not too difficult to replace yourself:

    Some games may have some slight scratches on the play-side of the discs that will simply not play in your games console or computer. Some home remedies to repair discs may help with only very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally required to restore deeper scratches or disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

    Xbox360 seems to be scratching discs


    Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally rerquired to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

    If this is happening consistently without any knocks or movement of the console, I would contact Microsoft for advice on your games console.

    DVD plays well until it stutters midway thru and


    If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).

    Circular scratches on xbox 360 disc wont work in some areas of game.


    Hi,
    The only real solution is to take it to your nearest DVD- Video Rental Store, or store that has a Disk Polishing Machine. The scratches are where the laser head, has scuffed the Disk. Therefore normal Polishing Won,t Work.
    The disk needs to be resurfaced.
