Have you tried this tape in another machine? Your audio and video heads could be getting clogged. A head cleaning tape may fix it or you may need to have them hand cleaned.
If the tape has been stored where it is potentially warm and humid the tape could have degraded.
Unfortunately even the best quality tapes will eventually degrade as the oxide is slowly removed with every pass of the heads.
If a head clean on your player doesn't work, the best way to attempt to retain those memories is to take it to a professional video duplication place and have it transferred to DVD

The tape film has been torn. How can i re-attach it?


use scotch tape to reattach tape

trim carefully so no extra tape hangs over sides

the "magic" tape works well - it is one that dissapears more when you rub it hard

Tip

Always look for Video Splicing tape on google


<span><b>Never!!!</b> Never use Scotch tape on your audio or videotape, eventually a chemical reaction will cause the glue to melt down and leak to adjacent parts of the tape and damage it beyond repair. Splicing tape is specially formulated for magnetic Mylar tape, Guaranteed not to melt or bleed.Splicing Blocka device used for positioning and holding down a section of magnetic tape while splicing and joining splices with splicing tape</span>

I tried to see the 8mm tape video (recorded 10 years ago- my wedding party) but I couldn,t see anything!! I wondering if the tape needs cleaning ? or that is the reason?


Sometimes that happens...just keep fast forwarding and rewinding and playing and it'll usually eventually sync up.
Once it does, record it onto some other media while it's still working.

It requires a specific software program to be able to do it.I found that out when researching about my VCR tapes to computer to DVD.Although I do not know how successful you will be with 8mm.Just search for it at various stores.Or better yet,begin by checking with your camcorder manufacturer to se if they know anything.Good luck,Greg

OLD P6-120 Tapes


The only way if to get an 8mm player from any friend or from any photography studios that does conversion of old tapes. These recordings can be converted only if they can play well and hopefully without deterioration due to magnettic fields and fungus. Check out on old stores or maybe some electronic freaks who would be glad to share and ,make a transfer. Use can use a good handy cam to record using the the composite signals of video and audio which can be transferred to DVD. Hope you are lucky to find one! Good day.

Problem is dirty / clogged video head of v-8 player or camcorder what ever you are using for playback. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette for head cleaning.
Please check tapes on another camcorder as tapes seems OK.

Canon uc-1 video 8mm camcorder


Yes it can be fixed, but Canon is not the easiest to work on. Is the connector loose at all? The audio head may be dirty. This is not on the spinning heads. If you look inside and locate the pinch roller (rubber roller), there should be a silver head that looks like a cassette tape head. Try cleaning that using a cotton swab and alcohol. See if that resolves the problem.

Keep us posted.
