Yes. clan it now because particles that come off the magnetic tape or videotape can build up on the record/playback heads, reducing the signal quality.

hope this helps

My video camera works fine when i record but when i try to playback the video it breaks up and shows lil blue box all over


The head is dirty and needs cleaned. Look around for a MiniDV cleaning cassette. If you can't find one, then you need to clean them manually. You will need foam swabs and Q-Tips could possibly leave behing a strand of cotton, plugging the head further. Also don't use rubbing alcolol. It is 30% water Gert 100% isopropyl. Consult your manual for the required cleaning spots. There will be a few,

Panasonic AG - 196


well danny,

that cam is an analog. well, as long as there are full size VHS VCR's there is going to be full sized VHS camcorders as well. The convenience of dealing with only one tape format is undeniable. Not having to convert the tape out of the camcorder and into your VCR, without wires or adaptors or losing quality can seem more important to some people, than the overall size of the unit. By utilizing the optional professional wide-angle lens you can cover all the bases. This unit is straightforward and easy to operate and the results are top notch too! A full-size VHS camcorder, the AG-196U is ideal for those just getting started in video, as well as for educational and institutional applications. It offers a 14: 1 two-speed power zoom lens, low-light capability, Audio/Video fade, has advanced recording and playback functions as well as digital effects to meet almost any application. Extremely sensitive 1/3" CCD with 420, 000 pixels provides outstanding picture quality, even under low-light conditions.


you'd feel like a professional with this cam.

cheers

Noise block doring playback of D-VHS tapes


* Do not record program in DVHS mode on an S-VHS cassette. Use of S-VHS cassettes will not allow for maximum performance and may result in head clogging. Use only D-VHS cassettes as recommended in the instruction manual on page 27. * Make sure that the DIGITAL 3-DNR lamp is ON when playing back a cassette recorded in D-VHS mode. If not press DIGITAL 3-DNR so that the DIGITAL 3-DNR indicator illuminates. * When block noise appears on the TV screen, clean the video heads with the DFC-2 D-VHS Head Cleaning Cassette (continue up to 3 minutes total). Please refrain from using any other head cleaning cassettes as drum damage may result.
