Question about RCA 8MM VIDEO HEAD CLEANER (WET) 8mm Tape
This camcorder was purchased in 1992. It still records and plays fine EXCEPT that when I play the tapes (hooking it up to a vcr) the sound is missing - I know the sound is there, these tapes have been played before and were fine. I can hear a crackling sound and a little bit of the audio. I have tried different cables to hook the camera up to the vcr and get the same result. I have also cleaned the heads on the camera. I suspect something is loose inside where the cord connects to the camera. Can this be fixed?
Yes it can be fixed, but Canon is not the easiest to work on. Is the connector loose at all? The audio head may be dirty. This is not on the spinning heads. If you look inside and locate the pinch roller (rubber roller), there should be a silver head that looks like a cassette tape head. Try cleaning that using a cotton swab and alcohol. See if that resolves the problem.
Keep us posted.
