Default Question for the DVD teckie experts

I have a question and I would bet that someone on here with all the vast knowledge that is on this forum can help me on this, now that you are all buttered up here is my question. I have several DVD that were recorded off the TV and had Labels put on them with one of those label kits and now after several years of use they lock up and wont play anymore. I was told that they get out of balance from the labels and of course you cannot remove them at least I don't know or what to do so any suggestions?

Thanks Deaconllb

I'd try a bit of naphtha to lift the stickers.

use a sharpie to label.


I'd try goo-gone for lifting labels and removing stickies.

You didn't store them anywhere near a magnet did you?

No all the ones that were recorded and not labeled are just fine it is the ones that I bought from a private party that had a label on them after a year or two are locking up always at the same place there are no damage to the surface. They are stored in a cool place and each one has a case not bulk stored.

No they are paper labels other words not the kind that professional DVD producers use. You can buy a label maker from Walmart or a number of other places. I got the bright Idea of putting labels on mine but after 2 I was looking at the sheet of instructions that came with the kit and there was a warning DVD may not play with a label so I trashed the thing. But the ones I bought from a private party looked great but later the began to lock up, live and learn I now put a table of contents in the plastics DVD holder.

Find a way to remove the label from one. If this is successful then remove the other labels. If not then file them in the trash container or use them for targets.


Hoppe's #9 is an excellent glue remover.
