Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Please let me know details of how to clean video cassette players to provide a clean picture. Normally I use a cleaning cassette or getting inside and removing particles on the video drum, are there other ways?


Answers :

Hi,
Cleaning tape is safer way and manually cleaning drum requires expertise.
There is no other safe way to clean video drum in VCR.
If video head becomes dirty/ clogged repeatedly after cleaning that is sign that it requires replacement. New video drum will work fine.
Thanks.

Cleaning cassette I do not have any knowledge of camera fixing and such. So if I am correct, there is a cassette to clean the inside of my camera (the one you suggested to me earlier)? And that should fix the dirty video head?

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!


The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera

I have an older pair of zoom lense Bushnell binoculars, 40mm with 7 to 21 power. I used to have a cabin in a very humid, mildewy area of Florida and it seems that the mold (mildew) has found its way into the lens whereupon it really messes up the viewing. I took the end pieces off and cleaned the insides with camera lens cleaning items and that helped, but I think the eye pieces need to be removed to finish the job. How do you do that? I'm not sure they are screwed onto the body! Has anyo

I have an old Video Camera, Sanyo VM-RZ2R 8mm camcorder. I can't get the cassette holder to eject. There's no cassette in it at the moment but when I press the eject button, the camcorder turns a couple of little plastic wheels within it but the cassette holder does not eject. I have some old footage of the kids and was hoping to get it copied to digital eventually. Can you help? Thanks.


Your eject problem will be one of three things. 1- the gears for the eject mechanism have shifted and not making contact with each other. You can fix this by realigning the gears. 2- The gears are stripped and need replaced. 3- there is a small plast ... Sanyo Digital Cameras
