Yeah well that's what happens when you scratch your discs.

I suggest you either buy a disc cleaning set, or, make your own, I make my own. Here's the recipe. You'll need three things;

1) Distilled water
2) Isopropyl Alcohol
3) Cotton balls
4) Spray bottle (use empty febreze bottle or get one at a 99 cents store.

Boil two cups of water with a lid, don't open the lid, when it's boiled leave it for 1 hour to cool off, then add a cap full of Isopropyl Alcohol, shake and wait another hour. When done spray directly to disc, let it sit for five minutes, then use a cotton ball to move it around.

This always works for me,if the disc is severely scratched then your out of luck.

Dvd player can't play blue ray disk


If you have an earlier model Compaq, it most likely a DVD ROM player. Check the printing on the drive tray, if it says DVD ROM then it cannot play Blu ray disks.

How To Fix A Scratched CD,DVD,Rom,Disk ect


Some time you get a disk that gets scratched and you cant play it, it could be a disk for anything such as a video game system or a dvd. There are many myths to get the scratches out like flushing it in the toilet ( it does clean it).

To remove the scratches you need to resurgace the disk, pretty much scratch a layer of it off. You can purchause a disk resurfacer from places like walmart for about 20 dollars but also some game stores and most stores that sell used cds can do it to.

I have tried to play 2 dvd's from netflix. I have used this player for 6 months and not had a proble. Both dvd's didnt play and disk error message appaered


Double check that you don't have BluRay disks that you are trying to play in a standard DVD. Or that they are upside down...

Netflix disks, in my experience, have all had scratches and gouges on them. It might be that you are the recipient of 2 disks in a row from netflix that are too damaged for your DVD to play.

DVD freezes when playing on a Sony SLV D300P DVD/VCR


That particular unit is very sensitive to scratched or dirty disks. Remove the disk and make sure there are no finger prints, peanut butter & jelly, or popcorn butter stains on the back side. If there is, gently wash the disk under warm water with a DROP of mild dish detergent, being careful not to scratch the surface. Rinse the disk well and dry with a soft, lint free cloth (like an old cotton t-shirt) again being careful to avoid scratching the disk. Replace the disk and play.

If the disk is scratched, there is little hope of fixing the scratch so the unit can read it.....

The dvd player says BAD DISK, but will play CDs


It's possible that the player needs cleaned or the disk has a scratch in it which will not allow it to play. I'd try a good dvd cleaner first. Hope this helps.

DVV Player won't play disc


Check to make sure your player can play other disks. If so then use the disk doctor to remove the scratches on your favorite disk. The area that all DVD players scan before playing a disk is probably smudged or scratched.
