Sony CCD V800 change colour to black and white The hi8 lose the colour to black and white when playing


Ether the unit is very dirty and needs to be cleaned as far as the heads go or you got a bad head inside. This will be determined by a camera shop most likely its just dirty and needs its heads cleaned. A HI 8 still is a magnetic tape and thus dirty or dust can get in the recoder head and thus obscure the color or recording. I would be on the safe side here and have a camera shop take a look is you best bet.

Why do my prints have a purple tint to them?


Most cauuses to this is dirty or failing print head.

Many people would say it was the sponge that is doing that but let me tell you if it was a full sponge you would not even see that color tint. Its the print head that is not mixing correctly due to being dirty or corrosive. Do you use refilled ink cartridges? If so you answer is iron clad your print head will need to be replaced and you need to put a stop to the refilled oslution, if not then the print head got dirty or is defective.

1. print head cleaner
2. new print head.

thanks hope this does help please do be considerate and rate and leave feedback for your free answer.

We have a new camera and after approximately 26 hours we lost an entire tape. It was somehow erased. We don't know how this could happen. We were told that the heads were dirty. Is this common.


If you were using an old tape in camera then its quite possible that video heads can get clogged/ dirty.
Dusty environment can also be cause of dirty heads.

Snowy picture, are heads dirty if so will head cleaner work, could there be another problem other than dirty heads?


if it is your heads, a head cleaner tape slowly grinds down your heads. Abrasion bad. Take to shop and have them clean heads with solvent and soft cloth or Q-tips. Might not be your heads, much electronics, but sounds like might be.

Dirty heads


I work for canon and when I get one this dirty I use a tape that has been recorded with used or almost used up. I let the tape rewind and fast forward all the way through. I then use a soft head cleaning tape for 25 secs. If that doesn't work then it might need an adjustment.

Digital video camcorder are recording signals in very thin line (as thin as 1/8 of a hair.) Therefore, following symptoms may appear if video heads become dirty even a little. If such symptoms appear, clean the video heads with a commercially available dry cleaning cassette. If the symptoms reappear shortly after cleaning, the video cassette may be defective. Stop using the cassette. Video heads may become dirty under the following conditions: (1) When using the camcorder in humid or hot places. (2) When using cassette with damaged or dirty tape. (3) When using the camcorder in dusty places. (4) When using the video heads without cleaning them for a long time. Note: Before you make important recording, clean the video heads and make a test recording first. We also recommend cleaning the video heads after use before storing the camcorder.
