Definitely sounds like a dirty video head or a bad video head. You are headed in the right direction with the cleaning tape but you may not be able to get it thoroughly with the cleaning tape. You can try a q-tip dipped in alcohol and try to cleaned the video heads on the drum assembly yourself, just kinda soak the heads with the alcohol and gentle scrub the heads if the heads are clogged this may help. If it doesnt then you may need a drum assy. I have researched it for you and the part number is "A7048988A" from partstore.com. I hope this helps.
