Sony hi8 tape has snapped and I want to repair it as it has sentimental value?


If the tape snaps or cut itself, try to open the cartridge by removing the 4 screws on its sides and carefully attached something like a Scotch tape on each end to mend the video tape. Once done, it will play smoothly when you try to play it back on your sony Hi8 camcorder. I'm sure this helps because I am doing it when a client has torn tapes that needs to be transferred to dvd's. ^_^

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

Hi, I have some Sony Hi8 cassettes which are about ten years old. I can see little fungus on those tapes and not sure whether I should play it on my camcorder. I want to recover those videos into...


I would not recomend playing the tapes. If that fungus scratches the head you could be in for a massive repair bill. The best you can do is try to wipe it off with cotton buds. I just hope it's not widespread or you could have lost them for good. Only a specialist lab (film restorer) could rescue them then.

The tape broke. How do I get it reconnected?


is the tape outside the cassette? or inside the case itself (if inside we have to open and connect it to reel) but outside you need the paper thin masking tape 1/2 to 1 inch wide (cellophane is to thick)...now take both ends of tape..the tape on left side cut a 1/8 inch (hold in left hand cut on a diagonal toward the left)..(just FYI this is called splicing) now the right one cut it about 1/8 inch also in the same manner toward the left)..now cut a 1/2 inch of masking place on table...place the right tape on tape leaving at least half for the other part to go on....now take the scissors cut off any excess masking tape on both edges of tape...this should help get your first job at hand done....recording to dvd....have fun

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.
