Recorded new tapes show lines or tracking problems when playback Do I need a new battery, clean the heads or a new camcorder


Hi - This is the most common problem with film camcorders. The heads are dirty. you need to get yourself a head cleaning cassette and carefully follow the directions. Since it sounds like you haven't cleaned it in a while or at all would give it a second pass with the cleaning cassette.


Analog camcorders in general specify that the heads should be cleaned every 10-15 hrs.of use. It's possible it's another problem but unlikely and this is a cheap way to find out.


Good Luck and thanks for visiting Fix Ya.

560X Camcorder Handycam won't record or play


This behaviour is relaterd to tape reading / tape detection. You may have a dirty or worn-out head on the video heads drum.
You may try to use a cleaning tape in order to retrieve normal perfoming of your camcorder, BUT you should take care, as cleaning tapes are also abrasive tapes, and the amount of cleaning cycles a video head can support is limited.
Then it should be possible that after cleaning the result is nul or worse (I had this lately on an old Sony Camcorder, it was recording with much losses in the film, after using the cleaning tape it doesn't record any more).
All that means you may repair your camcorder with the cleaning tape, but you may finish it too, if the video heads are too old.

In any case take time to read the cleaning tape user manual, cleaning time is very short (10 seconds generally) and must'nt be overtaken.

Hope you would have the good result !

How Do I Clean The Heads?


Clean the inside of the camcorder with a special head-cleaning cassette which can be found at most Electronics Stores. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use. If the cleaning cassette fails to adequately clean the camcorder heads, have them cleaned by an Authorized Service Center.

Lines in replay


Digital video camcorder are recording signals in very thin line (as thin as 1/8 of a hair.) Therefore, following symptoms may appear if video heads become dirty even a little. If such symptoms appear, clean the video heads with a commercially available dry cleaning cassette. If the symptoms reappear shortly after cleaning, the video cassette may be defective. Stop using the cassette. Video heads may become dirty under the following conditions: (1) When using the camcorder in humid or hot places. (2) When using cassette with damaged or dirty tape. (3) When using the camcorder in dusty places. (4) When using the video heads without cleaning them for a long time. Note: Before you make important recording, clean the video heads and make a test recording first. We also recommend cleaning the video heads after use before storing the camcorder.
