Search a nearby computer retailer and it may have the thing. It must be a kit. Also, search online, like at eBay. It must be there. But if it is torn, there are really few chances of it getting recorded properly. 
Do not clean it with any household items, as it can cause permanent data loss.

Jvc gr-ax35 only plays black and white on 3 different sources i.e. tv, dvd recorder player and usb capture. could this be tape detrition or dirty video head


i would take it and get it serviced
i think the tape isnt running at quite the right speed perhaps a dirty bearing
usually if you get black and white from a colour video
then its either recorded in black and white or playing back black and white

so if you record then test it using a a vcr and a converter vhs tape box then you can see if its recording in black and white

then youll know its something too do with either the colour carrier etc component of the video its outputing

dont think its a dirty head
but you can clean it easy enough
i use a plain manila envilope and use the inside of its paper
the outside is smooth the inside is rough
its just right to clean the head drum
and some small lint free cloth to carefully clean the mecha
i use IPA isopropile alchohol {get from the chemist}

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!

While playing a vhs tape, I only get sound, no picture. No problem with a dvd.


You may have a dirty video head, try a wet or dry cleaning tape (I recommend the dry tape) the other option is to use a brand new store bought tape T120, set vcr to sp "2hrs" and let it play the full time.

Can not paly


Make sure you are putting the right digital tapes in, I use digital 8 myself, best mode yet, cannot understand anyone filming with lesser modes like DVD, as tape has always and will always be best.
The problem your camera has is dirty playback heads, grab a 8 mm camera cleaner tape from any good camera shop like Jessops, do not let them tell you the camera has had it's day, because the rubbish I see of new cameras these days are not worth buying.

Says play dvd when entering games


This usually is caused by haveing a very dirty disk. Regular dusting probably won't solve it, get your hands on a disk cleaner, (Walmart usually carries them) also run a DVD drive cleaning disk through your console. If that doean't work your drive will probably need to be torn apart and cleaned.

**Make sure your warranty is expired before you open your console.

Line on playback of vhs c tapes


You should play them through a different machine. Your video heads are dirty. You can get a head cleaned and this will work. It is probably not your tapes if they were kept clean.I hope this helps.

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture...


Try to use video head cleaning cassette one more time and check. Problem still exist then....
There is a very special cassette used to clean much dirty video heads calls Lapping Tape.
This is provided only to Sony Service Centers.
You need to contact nearest Sony Service Center.

you probable have a dirty video head...you can try a tape head cleaner tape/// they sometimes work.... if not you need to get to the video head and clean it with a liquid cleaning solution---
one of your tapes may have a bad spot on it causing the problem...if you clean it and use the same bad tape again you can cause the same problem again
