You can use wax and polish and sometimes glue and tape to repair a scratched or broken DVD. Deep scratches may not be repairable, and may require professional help. Discs broken into two or more pieces are generally not repairable. Apply a tiny amount of plastic glue to the crack, using a pin or toothpick.

Clean the disc using a soft lint-free cloth and a dab of warm water and mild detergent. Fill scratches with toothpaste. Soften scratches with heat from a 60W lightbulb. Fill the scratch with a wax-based product. Cover holes in the data layer with pen and tape.

If you have a Lite-on Recorder, skip all the info below and simply get a DVD-RW made by Lite-on or Phillips and fit it inside the Recorder's box. They are nicely interchangeable. The pastic 'door' of the drive will have to be a loose item but it's easy to put in place manually every time to keep the dust out.

If your player has started rejecting dvd's and it seems to get worse over time then it might be that the laser lens has become off-position. In two players I have, I have repaired this fault by shifting the angle of the lens slightly. On my recorder I found that the lens is held in place by six very fine wires that also carry current and move the lens during operation. I believe the wires may have sagged slightly over the years so I propped the whole harness that contains lens plus wires up on one side with a tiny wedge of paper. Hey presto, the recorder is now accepting the discs and initializing them at twice the speed I was used to. No more trying different dvd brands (some seem more tolerant of an off-centre laser).

In another, inexpensive dvd player which also started rejecting many discs there are only four wires holding the laser lens. That player is now functioning perfectly after bending the two upper wires very slightly in an upward direction.

.... a year or so later: I would now like to alert the reader that bending those wires sometimes should be considered only as a last resort. Just recently the player wouldn't start the motor when I put in a disc until after two or more attempts by re-inserting the disc. After the disc was registered by the player, it would work 100%, even after sitting in there for days. Eventually, the loading problem started getting on my nerves and I started tweeking those fine lens wires again. That was a mistake because, at first, the playback became jerky and now there is no playback at all.

After much more time used up on the player I have realized that the problem this time was being caused by positioning of the spindle motor (the one directly under the dvd). There are three adjustment screws at the base of/under the motor (in this Alba player) and one of them can be accessed easily with a screwdriver once the 'brace' (the bridge that lies over the top of the disc) is removed. I have adjusted the three screws in different ways and now have no problem with motor activation when the disc is first inserted (and checked by the laser). However, I seem to have put my laser lens well out of alignment this time with the slight bending of those fine wires and it doesn't look like the player will ever get past "Loading" and play a disc again.

In conclusion, first try fine adjustment of the spindle motor positioning if it does not start up when you first insert a dvd. It might need only a tiny tweek to the left or to the right. Slight upward bending of fine wires that suspend the laser lens did previously bring my player back to full performance but I was careful to make it a very small adjustment. A second adjustment to the same player has lost the player's ability to read data off a disc. It could be that generally my laser has become weak with age and was ready for recycling anyway.

CONCLUSION

1. If the cd or dvd player won't start a disc (might display 'no disc') open the box and get good access to the laser lens (quite easy in many models). Clean the lens with an ear-bud (q-tip) and add some alcohol (I used after shave) on to aid the clean if there are still reading problems. Persevere with cleaning before trying option 2.

2. If it's selectively rejecting certain dvd's (and the problem might have become worse with time) consider ever-so-slightly bending the fine wires that suspend the lens over the laser, in an upward direction. Be very careful and read all the observations above first.

You can utilize wax and clean and in some cases paste and tape to fix a scratched or broken DVD. Profound scratches may not be repairable, and may need proficient support. Plates broken into at least two pieces are by and large not repairable.
