Disk skipping, slowing down problem

Hi, I've tried using DVD lens cleaner for my DVD combo drive. Still didn't work. Played all my DVD's, still skips. Are there any other solution that can be suggested to have my DVD combo drive fixed?

Check your DVD's for scratches and try one that does not have any marks or fingerprints. If it still skips try removing and reinstalling the DVD driver. My guess is that the drive is out of alignment. Most drives have a tiny screw on the underside of the lens mechanism that you can align the drive with. You will need a really small screw driver. Do a search on google for aligning DVD's. You have to only turn the screw a tiny tiny amount because you can make the drive unusable. This is a last resort because a mistake can ruin the drive. www.photphot.com

Wont read discs

follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you
If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.

Audio static and video skipping during DVD play

Hello billandanita. Have attempted a disk player cleaning? If not purchase a disk cleaning pack from a local electronics supply/repair store. Asking a local repair shop will get you the best cleaner available. Good Luck.

It Skips

Either the disk is dirty or the laser lens is. Buy a DVD lens cleaner and use on your player. For the disks, carefully wipe it with lint-free cloth or toilet tissue. Be careful not to scratch the disk. All you are really trying to do is wipe off any fingerprints or lint/dirt.

I dun't know, but mine does the same thing! Silver satin right?

try cleaning the lens with a DVD laser cleaner disc, I bouth one at Walgreens for about $12.00 it's Scotch brand, has a few brushes that gently clean the laser, dont touch them tough cause u can get oils from ur fingers on it, if not use a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol, not too wet! and gently in a curcular motion clean the lens! GENTLY! ... if all that don't work, and the game's not scratched, the laser could be bad, I heard that the laser sucks on the PS2!
