Hi, I have some Sony Hi8 cassettes which are about ten years old. I can see little fungus on those tapes and not sure whether I should play it on my camcorder. I want to recover those videos into...


I would not recomend playing the tapes. If that fungus scratches the head you could be in for a massive repair bill. The best you can do is try to wipe it off with cotton buds. I just hope it's not widespread or you could have lost them for good. Only a specialist lab (film restorer) could rescue them then.

I have a GE CG818A Camcorder, when I play it it only plays black and white. Was wondering if there is a used Sony or any camcorder that would play my Video8 P6-120MP tape, in color.


I have the exact same camera and same exact same problem. Any analog Video8 or Hi-8 camcorder or VCR will play these tapes.

By using the same cassettes as Hi8, many (NOT ALL) Digital8 (produced by Sony exclusively) camcorders are able to play analog Video8/Hi8 recordings, preserving compatibility with already recorded analog tapes.

you can connect Digital8 camcorders to your computer to download your movies for editing or Internet use.

As of 2008, Digital8 camcorders have been removed from the equipment offered by Sony.

While playing an 8mm tape that was recorded, I have the problem where there was no sound from the camcorder and the picture was grainy.


sounds like the record head(s) may be very dirty, check them, they should clean and shiny if dulled an brown with tape residue, you can clean them with a lint free cloth and head cleaner. tape based cleaners cassette may not be good enough if the heads are very dirty. ensure you give the heads enough time to dry after cleaning 2 mins should be good then run a test record to check them.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

I have a Fuji Hi8 MP p6-120 that will not play


Check the top of the tape. There is a slider which open a slot or closes it. It should be closed.
