For all those diehards out there that still have a laserdisc player and some laserdisc. I just picked up a couple of cheap laserdisc movies at a garage sale and found that one side of one of them was infected with sporatic white lines running through the picture(almost like it needed to be tracked, but laserdisc to my knowledge cannot use tracking). I have around 30 laserdisc, and these are the only ones that have this problem for extended periods of time. Anyone else experience this? And any ideas of what can be done to improve or get rid of these lines? Could it be a "dirty" disc or one in need of a repair/cleaning kit, or just the way the disc was manufactured. Basically, is there anything I can do?? The lines truly bother me when I am used to DVD quality. Otherwise, the laserdisc quality is very close to my dvds.
