    Not much chance of fixing a warped record... you'll need to buy new ones.

    back in the day i would take a SLIGHTLY bent record ( not one with ripples in it) and put it in the sleeve and lay it in direct sunlight for 15 mins or so, then take it out of the sun and place like 4 records on it ( to enforce the straight shape)and then a crate or flight case on top to press things back flat.

    i have had varied success with this method , as it is more of an art than a science, but i always consoled myself with the knowledge that the record is already ruined.

    I've heard of some people being successful using that method, but putting the vinyl between 2 pieces of glass. Not sure if it's worth trying, or not... but like you said, it's already ruined.

    Sandwiched lightly between 2 sheets of glass in a warm place then left to cool between the glass works if it's not too badly warped

    but make sure youīll do it slowly. donīt use forced heat. donīt let the sun shine straigt on the plates, also donīt put it on a heater. just a normal room and let it be there for at least 2-4 days

    a hair dryer will heat the vinyl up, then try and put it between the panes of glass. good luck tho. prolly better off buying new ones.
