Do you know the best way to clean the head of a VCR is to take the top of the VCR and use cotton buds and that fluid or better still Servisol Video 40. Wipe the head and any part the tape touches with a bud soaked in the fluid. Let it dry and put the cover on. You will make a better job than the tape and get rid of fluff etc out of the works. PS It will take more work if someone smokes where the VCR lives.

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.

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

Hmmm. Try cleaning the tape heads with a mini dv cassette cleaner and see what happens afterwards. I would also recommend playing the tapes on a different camera and if you get the same response, then your audio is gone forever, but I highly doubt that would be the case.

Recordings are pixelized


Never use tape head cleaners, I suggest just use new blank tape and I recommend TDK minidv tapes, new tapes already serves as video head cleaner. If the problem is still there, manual cleaning is needed or it is possible that your video head is worn out already, you need profix then.
