2 Check the disc under a lamp and make sure there are no fingerprints, dust, dirt, or smudges left on the disc. Also check that there are no deep scratches on the disc that will prevent the laser lens from being able to read any of the special data encoded on the disc and can cause a lot of skipping.
3 Turn your player on and insert a cleaning disc from a kit and let it run like a normal disc for a couple of minutes.
