There is no evidence of physical damage (scratches) on the disc. I did try circular polishing with...

    I just finished fixing a non-receptive IR sensor on a JVC HR XVC25U combo VCR/DVD player. Remote control was ok but wouldn't control the VCR/DVD. I could control the Samsung HDTV with it and checked that the remote was sending signal on the VCR/DVD settings by using the digital camera...
