Question about Maxell VHS T-120 Videotape VHS Tape

1 Answer

Videotape twisted A videotape I was viewing became twisted at the end of the rewind. Is there a way to release the spools so that I can loosen the tape enough to be able to untwist it? I know how to open the hinged slat over the tape, but I don't know how to release the spools.

Underneath, between the spools, you can use a pencil or such other instrument to push in the part that holds the spools in place. Then loosen the tape as needed.

MC-60 tape says, "end of


Wow, microcassettes! (Sorry, I thought they were so cutting edge when they were.......cutting edge!)
Anyway, forgive the humour - you've most likely got a tape jam in the cassette itself but if it does this with other cassettes then you've got a dead rewind function your message indicates that you've got a later model recorder with a status display.
What does Fast Forward do?
I know it's annoying but the cheapest option may be to turn the cassette over and use FF if it works OK.
Have you checked out digital pocket recorders?
For the same money, or less, than yours likely cost new, they free you from cassettes, tape winding time, poor quality - all those analogue hassles.
The memory (time) capacity even the most bog-standard (as we say in the UK!) ones have is mind blowing.

Tip

Always look for Video Splicing tape on google


<span><b>Never!!!</b> Never use Scotch tape on your audio or videotape, eventually a chemical reaction will cause the glue to melt down and leak to adjacent parts of the tape and damage it beyond repair. Splicing tape is specially formulated for magnetic Mylar tape, Guaranteed not to melt or bleed.Splicing Blocka device used for positioning and holding down a section of magnetic tape while splicing and joining splices with splicing tape</span>

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera


Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.
Thanks.

The tape broke and I am trying to put it back together so I don't lose the dictation


I have done this,carefully take the cassette apart,by removeing the screws,be sure and look at how it is assembled.
Remove both spools of tape.In the break area cut with a razor blade each sides of the spools so you have a smooth surface on the tape.
lay them on a flat surface,pointing towards each other,be carefull not to drop the spools.Put one (little) drop of supperglue on the tape,then put the other end of the tape on top,make sure the alignment is straight and you dont glue the tape to youre work area.Wait about five minutes,then reassemble. Works like a charm for me.

On VCR, rewind is intermittent.


The motor is wearing down. I am guessing that this is a old VCR without a flying erase head. Time to start thinking of a blu-ray player (100$ now) or a dvd player, if you do not have a new 1080p tv.

Downloading a videotape onto the internet


You need to hook up your vcr to a video capture device, they have them for around $100 at your local Circuit Shack, it takes the rca jacks from your vcr's output, and puts it to usb, it may also come with the software to do it, if not windows mover maker is set up to, good luck mantin
