Many thanks for this information. Will try to apply it. Own 3 differents brands VCR and none of them work fine. ALthough I donīt know if the problems are in the VHS tapes because of the age.

Thumbs up Many thanks!!!

I just wanted to thank you for the tut. You have helped my sleepless nights do to the fact the vcr quit working and that is what my toddler falls asleep to watching her tapes. This was very easy to follow and best of all it works great. Thanks again.

Default clarification needed

Great article! But I was looking at the http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/fullimage.php?image=1141 image and the http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/fullimage.php?image=1142 one and I don't see the difference.

Are the pictures referring to the direction from which the alcohol soaked paper is applied to the heads? The positioning on the fingers looks the same in both images and I assume it's critical not to directly grasp the face of the drums.

Thanks for helping,
Jeff

Hello and thanks for your comments.

You have to place the paper wet in alcohol horizontally and not vertically, that is waht I was trying to show with the pictures. In other words, place the paper from left to right (or right to left), but not from up to down!

Enjoy!

Gabriel.

Default It worked!

Thanks for the clear instruction and pictures. My VCR was very dirty, and now it works great! (The cleaning tape I had tried previously barely did a thing!)
