Question about JVC GR D370US camcorder Mini DV
Try this also before you give in:
Sounds like you use the camera a lot. When was the last time you cleaned the heads? People forget this one simple thing. For every 20 hours of operation you should clean the heads. Try using a commercial "dry" head cleaner first. Only thing is they don't clean the rollers very well.
Note: I will always prefer to do a "manual wet"cleaning. It takes longer, requires more work, but gets the job done more efficiently. It is also not for the "first timer". You need to do it a few times to get the feel and hang of it. Start with 100% methanol and optical swabs you clean all the heads, guide pins, and rollers. (For excessive build up and for an aggressive cleaning , using 50% Acetone/50% alcohol mix.) Once cleaned, repeat with 100% methanol to remove residues. Let dry before inserting a tape again.
You are removing the "oxides" left behind by tape wear. It is redish brown in color and will be seen on a cotton swab after cleaning.
