Woohooooo!!! The Windex (TM) on the lens cleaner didn't work.


I took the case thing off, and to my delight, found I only had to open the drawer to see the laser lens staring me in the face. It looked fine, but I sprayed a teeny bit of Windex on a Q-Tip, wiped it, and dryed it with the other end. I put the cleaning disc back in, and it started reading the tracks and counting the time without skipping! My faith in Sony has been restored! Must have been a really fluke thing for it to get dirty in the first place, but I guess it did.

The problem with the lens cleaner is that the brushes are located on the middle area of the disc. Since mine couldn't 99.9% of the time play anything, it wouldn't play the cleaning disc either, so the brushes wouldn't contact the lens. That's what I think at least. Thanks for your help claudio!

No problem. The number one problem in opinion why the dvd player doesn't recognize or skips tracks is because the lens are dirty.

I recomend useing a dvd/cd cleaner every 6 months to keep it clean.

My cd cleaner cd has two brushes. I put a couple of drops on one of the brushes and leave the other one dry. And that usually works.

But I'm glad it work out for you.
