I took a chance on YAJ and bought Sony: The Test Disc (1995) [00MW-0009] with obvious scratches on it.

Sometimes the laser can read through and the seller had not mentioned the standard "no claim, no return" in the shop policy so... I gave it a try.

Chapters 1-6 are OK.

It starts skipping/laser locking/cycling from chapter 7 with obvious video noise (this is actually a few frames from chapter 8!).

And is unable to play normally chapter 8, 9 and 10. The MSC-4000 only outputs random noise patterns every few seconds. At some points it froze, had to turn it off/on again to get the processing back on.
You can hear the X9 trying really hard to read it.

Things get back to normal from chapter 11.

Seller agreed to a full refund, I sent it back today.
