Question about Canon XL1S Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have an old FUJI 8mm video camera (20 yrs old?) but has very few hours on it. It has sat in the china cabinet for at least 3 years without use and with a cassette inside the camera.
When testing the camera, it appears to record... when I try to rewind the tape to review the playback it eats the tape!!!
The tapes are about 20 yrs old too...is that my problem? or can dirty heads cause this too? My owners manual says to clean the heads with a FUJI 8CL-10 cleaning cassette, but I can't find one on the internet...
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
You should e able to use any head cleaner, as long as it is the right size for you camera, but that is deffinitely your problem.
