PS1 Games

The PlayStation 1 is a home video game console which is developed by Sony Computer Entertainment. PS1 discs are expensive and getting a disc scratched or damaged can cause a lot of headache. Sometimes if you are lucky, a local game shop may do it for you, otherwise you will have to find your own way to repair the disc. That’s probably why you are here, so in this article we will give you some different options on how to fix a scratched PS1 disc in a easy way.

How Do PS1 Games Get scratched?

It is very normal to be a little careless with gaming consoles and computers. Sometimes the discs are stored without a case or are kept open, picking up dust which you wipe off with the edge of your t-shirt. That gives the discs small fine scratches and smudges. Another common problem is when you leave the disc on a table or desk with the wrong side down. It’s really hard to pick it up without rubbing it agains the surface of the table, which of course leaves scratches.

This may cause damage to it and the disc may stop working. Deeper scratches on the top of the disc make the disc almost impossible to repair. Data can not be retrieved from a disc that has been damaged hard on the top side. However, scratches on the bottom are repairable by polishing.
