WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR DVD WON'T PLAY

Most skipping, freezing and pixilation are caused by dirt, sweat and grease from handling.  A simple way of curing this at home is to take the following steps:

 

  • Holding the edge of the disk (do not touch the shiny surface), breathe on the disk so condensation forms (like cleaning a pair of glasses) and then use a clean, dry cotton cloth to clean the disk (shiny side).  A number of clean, soft cloths can be used including the blue micro-fibre cltoh that Video Difference sells ($1.99), a t-shirt, or even the shirt you are wearing.
  • Do not use furniture polish, water, sprays or any liquid.  This could cause permanent damage to the disk.
  • After cleaning, proceed to the chapter where the problem occured.  You can use the scene selection option on the main menu of the movie to get there faster.

Enjoy!!
