Repair Using A Banana
- Open up a banana and apply it to the disk.
- Wipe the excess banana pieces down with the banana peel. The wax from the peel will help polish and further clean the disk.
- Take a clean cotton cloth and wipe the entire surface of the disk. Be sure to apply moderate pressure while moving in a circular motion. This should be done for around 5 minutes.
- Spray the disc with glass cleaner and wipe it clean.
Repair Using Toothpaste
- Clean the disc with a mild soap and warm water. This will remove any oils and finger marks.
- Dry the disc with a lint-free cloth.
- Apply the toothpaste on the disk.
- Rub the toothpaste on the disc in a straight motion (not in a circular motion) from the center to the outer edges.
- Let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Remove the toothpaste and dry the disk. Make sure to dry with care so not to scratch the disk further.
You can also try furniture polish.such as Pledge on a soft cloth and buff till dry & shiney. The wax in the polish fills in the scratches so the laser on your dvd player will glide right over them.
If all else fails, you can go to your local video store and for 5 bucks they will fix it for you.
