If Retro Game Fan can't repair your scratched discs, no one can!

Retro Game Fan performs Disc Resurfacing via an industry leading Disc Repair System. This is not one of those cheap disc cleaners that leaves swirls, etc. on your disc. The industrial machines we use are professional grade and are effective in removing 99% of all scratches! Your disc could be covered in scratches and still be repaired! The machines we use are the best in the industry! 

Note that some disc types are more responsive to resurfacing than others. Very deep scratches on some discs may be reduced but not eliminated. DVDs and similar type media usually can be restored to a flawless or a near flawless state. For Blu-ray and CD media, scratches may not be fully removed and only reduced since these media types utilize a much harder plastic compound. For example: Audio CDs, Dreamcast, Sega CD games & Blu-ray discs are repairable, but there may still be some scratches that cannot be totally removed. However, we have seen excellent results in restoring them to a playable state. DVDs, Xbox, Wii, PS1, PS2, etc. type media can almost always be resurfaced to a brand new like state unless massive damage is present (as indicated in "exceptions" below).

*Exceptions: Some discs may be beyond repair if the following issues are present

Badly Damaged Discs
  • Discs with holes
  • Excessively deep gouges or dents
  • Cracked discs
  • Disc rot &/or data rot
  • Heat damage (warped, melted, etc.)
  • Disc layers separating
  • Label side damage

A note about label side damage: If the top side with the artwork is extensively damaged, the disc is beyond repair. To check: Hold your disc up close to a very bright light bulb (label side toward the bulb). If you see light shining thru scratches and/or pin holes in the disc, you have label side damage. No machine is capable of fixing this type of damage. If the label side damage is extensive enough, the disc may be unreadable.
