    When I insert the cassette into the cassette holder and press to set it. The cassette goes into the camcorder like it is suppose to, then in a few seconds it starts to eject. I would love to hear how to solve the problem

My printer is skipping lines, how doi fix it


Mylar tape? In a cassette? This is a dot matrix printer? No good cleaning the tape anyway, you are likely to clean the ink film OFF it :>)

Best thing is to remove the tape cassette, clean the strike area with electrical switch cleaner fluid and then put a brand new tape cassette in. Also if you see a connector to the print head, separate the connector, spray with cleaner and remake the connection.

On play back I have sound but no picture


You just need to clean the video heads. You can get a tape cleaner for this, or you can do it manually.

To do it manually and it's the better option. You will need a can of Servisol Video 40 (from places like Maplin or on the Net). Some cotton buds.
Remove the top cover of the video. Once done, spray all the parts the tape touches with Servisol. Wipe any visible dust and dirt away with the buds.
Concentrate the spray to the big video head. That should look clean when done.
Leave to dry, it won't take long and try a video. If you can see the picture, but it is breaking up or has "sparkles" on the screen. Then clean the head again till it is a clear picture.

Notes: don't clean with a tape in the machine.
If you don't know which parts the tape touches. With the lid off and powered on play a video. And watch where the tape goes.
It will take longer to clean the video if anyone smokes in the room where the video is kept.
I repeat NEVER put a tape into the machine till the deck is dry.

You might have to do this again a few weeks months later.

Not recording? Wont let me retrieve anything. Says end of tape with a blank screen.


sir,
Did you test the previously recorded photos, or with a recorded cassette? if it is not showing the prerecorded pictures it means there is some problem with the video head, eject the cassette look the head drum carefully, if there any dirt on the head, clean it with a head cleaner cassette.(put the cleaner cassette in and play it,it will play for 3 minutes only, rewind the cassette and ply several times). some old cassette also will not give good result, if your system too old, the head may be weak so that you have to replace it.

How can i clean my cassette player? is there a tool or something?


if you want to clean the heads, do so with a non-oil based alcohol such as ethyl alcohol. the easiest and best way to clean out the entire unit is to buy an 'audio cleaner' tape. it looks just like a regular cassette but it doesn't play music, it actually goes through the system and (almost magically) cleans up the inside.

I have a Sony Handy cam DCR-HC30. When i put a cassette in, it says (reinsert the cassette).


-make sure that your tape is clean and dry
-clean the tape head inside the tape deck if you have a video head tape cleaner
*tape head: the one that reads the tape inside the camcorder.its the metal thing at the bottom inside the tape deck.
-or you can use a soft and dry Q-tip to clean it(dont use any liquid cleaners)
*or if confused where the tape head is....just clean all metal parts inside the tape deck and make sure you do it lightly with a soft dry Q-tip.

My trv 238e camcorders heads must be cleaning, but I have not hi8 head cleaner tape, how to cleans hi8 camcorder without hi8 head cleaner tapes


A much better way to clean cassette heads is to get some cotton buds and a Can of Servisol Video 40. You should be able to get the Servisol from places like Radio Shack or if in the UK somewhere like jessops or Maplin. I have also seen it on Amazon.
Just spray it on the head (only a small amount) then wipe of the dirt with a bud.

Thanks

I'm getting lines and mosaics on the video tape output of my Sony DCR-HC40, and a message on the viewing screen to use a head cleaning cassette. After a minute or so the lines go away and the video is...


NEVER try and manually clean your heads in your camcorder. The drum assy and heads are much more fragile and easily damaged than that of a VCR. NEVER spray any type of liquid/chemicals in or on your camcorder. A Sony miniDV head cleaning cassette is what you need. There are other brands out there, but Sony is hands-down the best. When using a head cleaner, play it for only 5 to 10 seconds at a time and then try your tape again. If it has improved, but still has problems then play the head cleaner for another 5 to 10 seconds. Hope this has helped. www.austintelstarservices.com

My sony hi8 Handycam TRV 138 gives me a message reinsert tape What is wrong? do it need repair


The cassette is not being detected when the tray is landing. If the head is not spinning but you are getting the cassette ejected then it is a malfunction of the loading mechanism. Even if the tape end detection optocouplers are defective the fault could be so.If you can check this out then try and test the voltage before and after the cassette loads. there should be a change if not replace. check on the loading mechanism too. Hope this helps. Good day

MX2, it displays the following: "remove the cassette" or eject. I thought it was a condensation problem but all attempts failed, please help me.


On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.
