Proper cleaning of old vinyl record albums

\015 I have a very very large collection of old vinyl record albums. I just purchased a new "usb" turntable to record my albums to the computer. Since my albums are "old" I thought it would be best to clean them before I play them on the new turntable so as not to mess up the needle.\015

Answers :

Get yourself a nice carbon fiber brush. Purchase some record cleaner or just get some isopropyl alcohol 90% (it has less impurities). Secure the arm of the turntable so you don't scratch the record and put the record on it. Put some of the cleaning solution on the brush..not the record. Put the brush on the record and turn the platter counter clockwise to work the dirt loose. Check the brush and clean it if need be and repeat. Take the record off and clean the turntable. Flip the record over and repeat the cleaning process. That should do it. Thanks for stopping by and come back if you need more help. If you don't mind, rate my answer appropriately. Thanks.

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures.

JVC Hard Disk Camcorder (Everio) GZ-MG155U, after break in file management, came out of it showing no recorded material (I had 6 hours of material recorded on it at the time) and though the on-screen read-out claims the disk is empty (i.e. 7 hrs of ultra-fine record time available), trying to record results in error message "recording failure."

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?

It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

Its currently stuck in video mode so i can record and view it on the computer but i cannot see what i am recording via the touch screen. i thought it was the screen so i got a replacement of ebay but that still hasnt fixed it. This all occurred from a minor drop. It was sitting on its bottom on the table and got tapped forward and has had a blank screen ever since.. approx 2years old.
