Rubber belts get old and either hard or gummy. Rubber capstans or rollers have black gunk come off it. That is why at a repair shop they use rubber renue to clean the rubber wheels. They often change the rubber belts to newer ones. The play hear is cleaned from black oxides left on it from decomposing audio tapes. The application of white grease on moving parts including the motor bearings. Also where the batteries used to be is there any acid remains of batteries left in too long. We also used to use contact sprays to clean the invisible oxides inside switches. Remember at 3 or 6 volts dc a fingerprint of oils has so much resistance as to cut the voltages in half. So if you viewed the player in the eyes of a technician... does the player actually look good?

My for the TI 84 Plus Silver Edition screen doesn't work. I changed he batteries including the back-up. The screen won't light up. I bought this calculator around 3 years ago.


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

If that doesn't work, remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries.

If that doesn't fix it, please append a comment to this post and we'll go on from there.

Canon gl1 camcorder dead pixel and artifact when


Hi there,

I know this camera well !

This is likely to be your heads, but you need to be made aware of the following:

1) MiniDV cassette

The quality of your cassettes should first be considered:

Panasonic, Canon and several other brands use what is called "Dry Lubricant" cassettes. For this reason, you should AVOID at all costs, any cassette made from a manufacturer whose cameras use Wet Lubricant type cassettes. Unfortunately, this means you should AVOID SONY cassettes (as Sony cameras use the WET lubricant system).

Dry type cassettes also cause less wear on your heads.

I would highly recommend you use only Panasonic PQ (Professional), SQ (Studio) or MQ (Master) quality cassettes.

(PS: I use these Dry type cassettes on my Canon Pro Camera)


2) Camera HEADS

As stated in above (re the cassettes), if you have inadvertantly used a WET type cassette in your camera (i.e. Sony or similar), have been using old cassettes or debris/dust has entered the compartment, then there is a high probability that some microscopic contaminants may have fouled your heads.

If so, your heads will require cleaning.

The good news is, Panasonic have a MiniDV Head Cleaning cassette (DVMCLA) which can be purchased for around $8 - $15. (try Amazon.com).

If you choose to use this cleaning cassette, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you only run the cassette for a max. of 5 seconds ONLY, for each clean (and no more than 10secs, as using this cassette longer than stated, can cause wear). Then, try playback of your old cassettes to look for improvement. Cleaning is only necessary, if you experience drop outs on dry type cassettes, or pixelating of picture playback.

If this head cleaning process does not resolve your problem, then you will require professional assessment.


Good Luck !

The DV tape is totally macroblocking during playback. Is this an indicator of dirty heads?

Husqvarna Prisma 980 decorative stitch cassettes don't work


Hi,
On that machine, the cassettes aren't actually computer chips. Each cassette has a little spot of white on a certain little area you must find (top right I'm pretty sure). Look in the machine at that point. There is a sensor that looks for that white spot, and as it identifies it, it changes stitches according to that cassette. Either the sensor is blocked, gone bad, or you can put a fresh coat of white paint on with white out. I hope this helps.
