    Qtip with some rubbing alcohol should work just fine. Used to clean my first xbox like that.

    1) Google would be the 1st home remedy.

    2) Google search suggest that you use "isoproponol alcohol on a cotton bud,one wipe with the slightly damp end then a quick wipe with the dry end".

    3)Take unit in for service and spend more for repairs than it would be to replace with new.

    4) How do I clean my ears? Maybe Speedguide will have an answer...

    I actually lean toward dental floss, one piece cleans both ears and it's less toxic!

    I actually bought a cleaning dvd with a brush but that didn't work. Would I have been better off getting a cleaning dvd that uses a fluid or should I try something else?

    thx

    moist tissue is all I've ever used. from the center out is how its used too.. cause if its scratched its scratched..there is no getting around it. I would attempt now to make a copy of it to save it before it gets worse and its trash.

    What kind of DVD player? You might just want to trash it and get a new one.

    it skips during viewing movies. It has never been cleaned and it is about 6 years old.

    besides a few bursts of compressed air there isn't much else you can do. They start acting up its time to replace them.

    Ok, here is where I am at. I tried cleaning DVD player but still have the same issue. I tried a store bought movie and have no issues viewing the movie. I tried the dvd that was skipping on my player on my computer and it does not skip there. The DVD-R which I am using are brand new.

    Any ideas?

    thx

    It's out of warranty, crack it open and examine it.

    I think this started to happen when I updated my version of convertxtodvd so I am rolling back and see if that is the issue. If not, I am going to try different burning program and type of dvd.

    So it's not so much your player but your burned medium.

    Try burning them a bit slower and it's possible your DVD-R's aren't very good.
