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!

Lines across tape while playing


Hi,

It sounds like either the recording head of your camcorder was dirty when you made the recording, in which case you will need to clean the record head and re-record, or the playback head is dirty.

Either way, you should be able to solve the problem by using an 8mm head cleaner tape which you can buy from the same place you get your camcorder tapes.

Hope this helps,

Chris

While playing an 8mm tape that was recorded, I have the problem where there was no sound from the camcorder and the picture was grainy.


sounds like the record head(s) may be very dirty, check them, they should clean and shiny if dulled an brown with tape residue, you can clean them with a lint free cloth and head cleaner. tape based cleaners cassette may not be good enough if the heads are very dirty. ensure you give the heads enough time to dry after cleaning 2 mins should be good then run a test record to check them.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an


You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

Problem is dirty / clogged video head of v-8 player or camcorder what ever you are using for playback. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette for head cleaning.
Please check tapes on another camcorder as tapes seems OK.

Canon uc-1 video 8mm camcorder


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.
