The tape is not adjusted to cylinder head. Both the sound and picture is lost when the tape is not exact on the wheel (head). If the camera has not been used for a long time then can the adjustable pins start to rotate and change the position of the tape when it is used again. The oil has dried out and the pin is not running smoothly, and the screw starts to rotate as well.
So, the solution.
a) remove the plastic cover so you can see the two pins that pulls out the tape from the cassette.
b ) small droop of oil on the top of the two pins
c ) use a small screwdriver to change positions of the tape, by turning screw on the top of the pins.
Put in the tape again and test , thus you have to do small adjustments. Repeat the test until you see the picture.

This is simple but it will take some time. I have now saved all old films, it is hard to find a old video-8 analog camera ....

When i try to record a yellow arrow then a message saying need head cleaner but sony doesnt make that model head cleaner what do i do


Greetings Jerry - You don't need a Sony head cleaning tape. 8mm is a standard that was used by many manufacturers.

Head cleaning cassettes for 8 mm and Hi8 are exactly the same, there is no Hi8 head cleaning cassette except one that Sony used to sell for almost three times as much as a regular 8mm and offered nothing special.

Sony also made a bit of a big deal that you can't use "wet" cleaners inside your Sony Hi8 camcorders...also not true and Sony was just trying to part you from your wallet.

I can understand if you have some concerns about these things so I suggest you Google around something like "head cleaners for 8mm and Hi8."

Good Luck,

Mikeywaf

I Can not see picture and also hear the sound when i play back my recorded ...


try running a head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds and then try to play your tape again. If it improves, but is not yet right, repeat process. We use a Sony 8mm Head Cleaner in our repair shop (for minor cleaning issues) and it works great....lasts a really long time too.

Hope this helps you

The picture on the video when I do playback get's fuzzy n snowy sometimes and other times the camcorder will eject the tape without me asking to, sometimes during recording.


You have two problem, Heads need to be cleaned or there are bad capacitors in the video line from the heads. Also your eject switch is bad or you may get lucky and be able to clean it with contact cleaner. The vtr and cam switches may be going out also . I have had to change all three before.

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

How to clean heads


Hi Jayne,

Yes there are commercially available head cleaners for 8mm camcorders. I'm pretty sure you can find them at Radio Shack or Best Buy...or if you google it, you can find a million of them online. Here is a picture of one:

Play back fuzzy


It looks like dirty video heads. Put brand new tape on camera and play it all the way to the end several times if necessary. It will clean the video heads. Good luck!
