Most likely, your heads are clogged - you need to use an 8mm tape head cleaner. Be careful where you buy as there are a lot of chinese knock-offs that are junk. We do have a supply of the original tape head cleaners from Sony. Contact Us at AVRepair com

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,

All of a sudden, my Samsung camcorder (sc-d372is


i suppose that your camcorder has a dirt on the tape head actually i experienced that aswell and i just buy a new tape to rewind while playing the tape so that the dirt from the tape head will dissappear. by the way im not giving you this advice. i suggest that you buy a tape head cleaner or camcorder tape head cleaner. im just sharing you my experience about my camcorder. if the problem still persist then send it on some samsung customer center or a camcorder technician.

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:

Head cleaning.


same problem in SHARP camcorders.

SHARP offers no satisfactory solutions.

Possible SHARP does not even manufacture a head cleaning tape.
If they do it is TOP SECRET.

I will never buy SHARP again.
