Sony V8-25CLH Camcorder Cleaning Cassette

  weston 09:52 07 Aug 2014

I recently started up my Sony Digital 8 Handycam. It records ok, but on playback the first time all is ok, thereafter, there are wide(ish) horizontal light grey bars across the picture.

Thought of head cleaning, although the camcorder has been rarely been used. The manual recommends the V8-25CLH cleaning cassette. They are very expensive whereas the V8-25CLD is a third of the price. Does anybody know what the difference is between them?

Incidentally, I don't think cleaning is the problem now. Thanks.

Could never get a cleaning cassette to work in my old 8mm Video camera.
