Question about RCA 8MM VIDEO HEAD CLEANER (WET) 8mm Tape

Open Question

Canon UC1 Camcorder

Back again. I gave up on the video head cleaner. Now I'm trying to transfer about 30 of these 8mm tapes to DVDs.
According to the User Manual, I need a DC-100 DC Coupler (have this), CA-100 Compact Power Adapter (have this), AND a C-150 AV Cable--which I don't have. Could anyone advise as to the best place to obtain?
thanks again!

Black horizontal lines across picture in playback


The problem that you are experiencing with your camcorder is possibly dirty video heads. I would recommend trying a Sony brand head cleaner tape. Be very careful and follow the directions exactly. Head cleaner tapes can be semi abrasive to the video heads. Try the head cleaner tape once or twice at the most. If it does not fix the problem do not continue to use it, it could damage your video heads.

If this does not fix the problem we would be happy to assist you with a free estimate. Just send in the camcorder and a technician will contact you within 48 business hours with a complete diagnosis and estimate. Please feel free to call, email or post any questions you have and I would be happy to respond.

I have a Canon ZR90A and started noticing horizontal gray lines displaying across the screen when it plays back. What is causing this?


The most common cause of horizontal lines during playback is dirty heads/tape path. If you have a head cleaner tape, try playing it for about 5 to 10 seconds and then try your tape again. Repeat as necessary. Try not to run the head cleaner for long periods of time because you may wear down your heads quicker (cleaning cassette is somewhat abrasive). If you do not own a head cleaning tape, I highly recommend purchasing one. Sony (in my opinion) makes the best miniDV head cleaning cassette. We use this brand in our repair shop and they last for years. I have posted a link to the particular tape I am speaking of. Your local camera/camcorder shop may have these for sale.

Pink lines when i play back my tapes on my canon zr500


Hopefull your not going through the tv and then to your dvd recorder
transfer should go straight from your camera to the dvd recorder.
you may also want to but a head cleaner for a mini dv camcorder,run it twice and try recoding again.If that doesnt work,you may have a problem with the heads inside of the camera.If thats the case,it would need to go to canon or an authorized service center.

Replay heads not playing back properly ,no sound ,like looking through venetian blinds ,used head cleaner but no better ,do i need new heads.


Have you used the same tapes over and over again? If so then reclean your heads and see if things work with a brand new tape. If this IS the case then I don't think what's on the original tapes will be salvagable.

Try to playback the tape and the screen is all blue


your heads motor ( drum ) cable may have have come loose or is dirty - since the cleaning tape made some difference the heads were dirty or almost worn out ( cleaner tape is abrasive ) so now there isn ' t enough signal ; if your date and time display worked only in play ? ( still works for camera record video ) your guides were out of alignment - and the cleaning tape took your guides even further out of alignment ( alignment here starts at $ 50 + shipping )

Lines in tape playback


Someone here recommended taping with the lense cap on in a quiet room for 5-10 minutes. When I played it back, no more skipping or gray lines. This worked for me!!!!
