How To Fix Scratches With Toothpaste


One of the worst thing about buying a used video game is worrying about scratches? In fact sometimes the scratches are so bad that your system will no longer recognize the game. I've been in this similar situation and though I wasted my money. However then I tried the Toothpaste Trick and I have been recommending it ever since.

The first thing you want to do is get some white toothpaste. You can try the other types or brands but I recommend regular white toothpaste. From there apply toothpaste to where the scratches are on your disc. Use a toothbrush or cloth and apply the toothpaste to the scratches. Make sure to be careful and avoid getting toothpaste near the center of the disc.

Once the toothpaste is on those scratches wait about 5-10 minutes. Once time is up go back to your disc and begin removing the toothpaste. You can try using another cloth however the toothpaste might be sticky. Get another cloth and apply a very tiny amount of water onto it. Use the wet cloth again to remove the toothpaste and then use a dry cloth to make sure the disc is try. Wait another 5 minutes to complete the process.


After that, your all finished! Your disc should be working good as new again and it only took a few minutes. Finally as stated earlier, be careful doing this. Make sure that you've tried other options such as simply cleaning the disc with a cloth before trying this trick. It should be used as a last resort.

Repair an XBOX Disc or other laser disc


After reading many online complaints about the XBOX 360 scratching a ring around the play side of game discs I went on a hunt for a solution. I wasn't able to find viable solution online but someone told me to try toothpaste to remove the scratches.

Personally I thought toothpaste might be too abrasive so I was able to polish my scratches out using "Wenol Polish". It comes in a blue tube like toothpaste but it's primary use is for polishing car parts and metals. Make sure to use the super soft version with a very soft cloth like micro fiber or a lint free optics cloth.

Take the cloth and wrap it around your index finger. Place a small amount of the Wenol on the cloth and make small circular motions over the scratches. Do about 1/3 of the disc at a time. Use light or medium pressure at most.

It should take about 15 or 20 minutes until you see the scratches fade away. Try your disc again and see if it reads properly in your machine. If not, return to polishing until it works.

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

How can I remove the scratches from my glass coffee table?


Unfortunately, there is no safe way to remove scratches from glass. I don't recommend trying anything at home because you could make it much worse. If you are bent on keeping the table I suggest taking it to glassworker to see if he can sand it down with special tools.

Watch lens scratches... Solutions to repairing?


If you have a plastic crystal, you can use plastic polish (I like Novus #2, myself) to buff out small scratches. In a pinch, white toothpaste (not the gel kind) contains gentle grit and also will buff out some imperfections in a plastic watch crystal. Toothpaste is harsher than plastic polish, however, and may remove deeper scratches at the cost of creating some additional fine scratches.
If your watch crystal is made of mineral glass, scratches cannot be easily polished out. In that case, your best solution would be to take it to a jeweler or watch repair facility to have the crystal replaced. Depending on the style of the watch, replacing a crystal can be as little as $15--or run to well over $100 for some diver's watches. If you're not comfortable with the estimate, get another one elsewhere. Crystal replacement is a high profit margin job for many jewelers. Not everyone is equally greedy.

The disc is unreadable


Is it just dusty, or are there scratches?
If it is just dust, clean is with something soft- t-shirts work quite well ni the abscence of anything else.Make sure to clean from the middle to the edges in lines, not circles.
For small scratches, a sometimes very useful solution is toothpaste.Put some toothpaste by the scratch and rub it it, then wash of excess toothpaste and dry the disc.The toothpaste fills in the scratch, leading to a temporary fix.

Removal of Scratches on TV Screen


you can try toothpaste. use on the scratched areas in a circular motion for around 5 minutes. This can reduce, and remove scratches from plastic, and even glass. Wipe of with a clean soft fabric or tissue paper lightly moistened.

Another solution is scratch-out. Which is used to repair spiderweb scratches in the clearcoat on automobiles. This is a polymer coating on cars. Your screen is also a polymer. follow the directions carefully, and don't get too aggressive with it. If it doesn't work, what you lost?

The poster above is obviously inexperienced with this type of thing.
