Correcting print errors

I've printed the wrong information on to the titanium surface of some DVDs.  Is it OK to use correction fluid or will it cause problems in the DVD player or computer if it gets hot? Or is there something I can use to rub out the mistake?

Sony bluray player flashes wait

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If your mini DVD player reads "No Disc" after you've loaded the disc, it means the machine isn't reading the DVD. Take the DVD out again and clean it. It's quite possible that the disc is simply dirty and cleaning it will solve the problem immediately.
If you try several different discs and clean them and you still receive a reading saying "No Disc," then the problem is in the laser and this will need to be fixed by a professional.
Clean a DVD disc:
  1. Hold the disc by its central hub and outside edge.
  2. Blow dust from the bottom surface with a can of compressed air.
  3. Clean dirt and fingerprints from the bottom surface with a lint-free cloth dampened with CD/DVD-cleaning fluid or denatured alcohol, wiping from the center outward.
  4. Clean the objective lens:
  5. Remove the housing and lift the hold-down clamp to expose the lens.
  6. Remove dust with canned air or soft brush. If needed, use a foam swab or a camera-lens tissue dampened with lens fluid

"Loading" error. RCA DCR69702 DVD can't read discs anymore.

Replace unit - the laser assembly has lost the ability to focus on surface of disk.

How do dvds bubble up?

insert from this site:
The protective film on the underside of the DVD can bubble up or start to peel away.
This problem can be due to manufacturing issues or from heat, stacking the DVD or rubbing
against the surface.

number 1 cause of dads bubbling up is due to heat. so try to keep them in their case and
away from direct sunlight. if at all possible keep them in cool room

the whole article:

Tips on Your DVD CareDVD's quickly exploded onto the market and people everywhere were scurrying to replace
their VHS tapes with DVDs. They do not come without their problems, though. The following
lists some tips for keeping your DVDs in good working order and describes some common
problems that you may find in your DVD collection.
These tips are designed to help you keep you DVDs in top condition. Following these tips will
not guarantee your DVDs will last forever, but will prevent them from becoming damaged
1. Don't put them in direct sunlight, or let them sit in hot rooms. Both of these will cause the
Mylar film that the data is written on to delaminate, hastening the aging process.
2. Don't scratch them. Much like CD-ROMs, scratches (and even dust) can render a
DVD-ROM unreadable. It's even worse for DVD-RWs, which "erase" data by filling in some
of the holes in the Mylar, and overwrite existing files by filling and reburning the patterns of
holes in the Mylar layer.
3. Make sure they're in their cases when not in use. This is the number one cause of DVD
failure, especially in houses with children, who tend to leave their DVDs out on the floor,
spill soda on them, and in general act as children do.
4. Make backups. If you've got a DVD-R, make backups of your most important DVDs -like
your children's favorite movie - so that the original can be kept in a climate controlled room
in the dark, to make more duplicates of when the children destroy the disk by squabbling.
5. Burn to DVD-R for archival purposes, and long term archival purposes, rather than
DVD-RW. Because the media that's written to is thicker, DVD-Rs tend to age better than
6. Back it up to a secondary hard drive that's kept off site.
Of course, to get the most out of your DVD-R drive, you'll need to keep the drive mechanism
cleaned up and well dusted, and buying higher quality (archival quality) media is something
to consider - though the formats themselves haven't been round long enough to know if the
archival media gives a significant edge in long term readability.
Common problems you may experience with your DVDs are related both to use and
manufacturing. The protective film on the underside of the DVD can bubble up or start to
peel away. This problem can be due to manufacturing issues or from heat, stacking the
DVD or rubbing against the surface. When this occurs the DVD becomes useless as the
player can not read it. Any scratches will immediately make the DVD useless. Another big
problem comes from bending the DVD. DVDs are made in layers and bending them can
cause these layers to separate.
Most people invest much time and money into their collection and by following these
simple tips you can avoid common problems that would make your DVD collection useless.

I have a dvd that will not play in my apple laptop. I had inadvertantly put the two shiny sides of the dvd's together and wondered if I somehow disabled the dvd's.

If other DVDs play OK on your laptop, then the problem is not in your laptop. If no DVDs play on your laptop, then the problem is in the optical drive.
It usually takes more to scratch a DVD than placing it next to some other DVD.

My hp photosmart c5580 won't print the correct ink color on dvds

Unless a printer is specifically designed to PRINT on CDs or DVDS, that's the problem. Usually a program called "LightScribe" is used to print on CDs or DVDs right in your DVD/CD Drive. For printers, use a Self Adhesive DVD/CD PAPER Label(s) that you can buy in the store. Inserting DVDs or CDs through a printer can really mess them up and Damage the rollers inside!

Epson stylus r1800 problem with printing on cd/dvd

Try this :

Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.


Here's generic instruction for you:

If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:

-Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer.
-Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position.
-Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.

Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support.
3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open.
4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position.
5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring.
6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide.
7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.

General tips for CD and DVD printing:
-Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them.
-Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer.
-Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing.
-All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density.
-The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo")
-Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported.
-Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print.
-The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.
