Hello,

After a few uses on my 9911, im getting "use cleaning tape" on screen and only static, no pic. I do get audio just fine. I cleaned video and audio heads just as described here in the forums, also demagnetized audio and still have static. is there a certain reset process or did something go kaput? any input is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

Well, the onscreen messages is ridiculous -- a cleaning tape is just a amateur fix. I wonder what the actual error is. That would have been a far more useful message on screen! So now you have to try and figure out what caused it.

I would jump to any conclusions, and I've never encountered a problem with a magnetized VCR ever -- not in 20 years. I'm a skeptic when that is claim to be the problem, having seen probably 100 (or more?) VCRs in my day.

I used 99% & chamois, held it very still against head and turned head manually.

Did you ever solve this one? If so, how?


This was an unanswered question or unresolved issue found during a site audit. It's hard to have an FAQ when the answers are missing, or final outcomes are unknown. At The Digital FAQ support forum, questions are never intentionally ignored, and may have been missed due to a forum glitch or human error. More details on the audit. (In some cases, threads have been edited/updated with newer information.)

it seemed to have fixed itself, and is still working great. maybe humidity had something to do with it?
