Question about HP DLTVS80 (C750760008) Tape Drive

1 Answer

Old Tapes work new ones don't

I have the correct new tapes. They successfully allow me to inventory, erase, name and catalog them. Unfortunately, none of them (I've tried two different batches) will backup. I receive "Data error - (cyclic redundancy check (V-79-57344-34028))". The media becomes listed as "not appendable (end marker unreadable)" even though the media-set properties is configured for infinitely appendable. The old tapes (3 years old) still work perfectly.
Could this be a hardware problem?

    Probably a bad batch of new tapes, return them and get another batch.

I'm having this exact same issue and according to the DELL tech it is common. What I had to do is keep using the tapes until they started passing. I bought 2 brand new cleaning tapes and ran two cleaning jobs before it would pass. My daily tapes are passing, and after several retrys my weekly tapes are passing. Since my Monthly tapes occur so infrequently, I'm just taking one of the Daily tapes out of the rotation and using a Monthly tape until it passes. It's either this or buy a new tape drive.

How to tune a vcr


I assume you are talking about the tracking control. Older VCRs had a control that allowed you to make adjustments within a narrow range by turning a knob and newer machines have auto-tracking. The adjustment allows very limited adjustment of electronic centering of the read heads over the recorded video track on the tape. The mechanical and electronic alignment of tape head tracking is a precision process that requires specialized alignment tools and a "standard" pre-recorded test tape. These tapes are very expensive and not as precise as one would hope. In addition, like all magnetic tapes, they stretch and must be replaced. The theory is that if multiple VCRs are aligned on the these standard alignment tapes, all machines will then track and reproduce material alike. Unfortunately, there are so many standard tapes in the world with so much variation that things do not always work well. If you cannot get your machine to play a tape recorded on another machine to track correctly, you could take it to a repair man and have him align it, but it is no guarantee it will track all the time on all tapes. That is why the world has moved on to digital recording.

Erase old videos


Ideally, you'll get a high-powered bulk tape eraser that is designed for video tapes and will work perfectly for audio tapes, as well. An audio tape eraser will work to a point, but usually won't blank them out completely since it doesn't put out a strong enough electromagnetic field to erase videotapes completely. I personally own an old Radio Shack high powered eraser and it works to erase both video and audio, as well as a demagnetizer for old color tv screens (when used at a distance...a bit too strong up close), and demagnetizing screwdrivers (the ones I don't want magnetized, that is). Hope that helps.

Playback 8mm camcorder tape fuzzy


8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

What a cheap machine. Can't erase confidential tapes after transcribing them. I'm returning this for a brand that has enough common sense to add an erase button.


Hello unfortunately this unit don't have a erase function the only thing you can get a Microcassette eraser this eraser will help even if you decide to buy any micro or mini cassette transcriber when you used the erase function on the unit the life on the head, rewind, gears and motors get reduced by using this method if you used and eraser it erase the tape Magnets are on top and bottom eliminating the need to flip the tape allowing complete erasure on one second heare is a eraser you can buy and it is cheaper than buying other unit. http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-ME20-Mini--Micro-Cassette-Eraser---New__VE-ME-20.aspx

How do i erase videos off of my tapes


Most people just record over the old ones. You have to buy a bulk degausser to erase them. Read this web page, and it has a link to a degausser. You can also google them to find other ones:

I am about to begin recording reel-to-reel tapes to CD's. Should I be concerned about deteriation of tapes made in 1980


I have successfully dubbed tapes at least as old as this, probably older by a margin. If the tape plays, no problem. Just make sure that the machine heads are clean before you transfer each one.

It is not a problem at all! The VW-210 & 260 was designed to utilize a two-step erase procedure to prevent accidential erasing of tapes.
1.) Press & HOLD down the TEL button
2.) Immediately press & HOLD down Rewind button UNTIL erase function starts then quickly release both buttons.

Not reading Hi8 tapes


Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
