Question about TDK 10 Pack of P6-120 8MM Tape 8mm Tape
I have a TDK 8mm premium tape that i recorded on about 10 years ago, now I tried playing it and there is no more audio, and the video is becoming distorted, Please help I would love to know if I can somehow restore this precious video or if its unfortunetly a lost cause
Thank you for your timw
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
