Summary: Since my camcorder is recording OK (visual and audio are OK when tape is played through another camcorder) but it is not playing the audio proberly (silent or audio drop-off short sections), I tried to clean the heads by using this tape. Since the camcorder still isn't playing the audio back properly (the video is OK) I don't know if it's my camcorder or the tape.
Summary: Got this for my Sharp camcorder and it worked fine. The cassette needs to be run for 10 seconds and taken out. The instructions say that the cleaning cassette should not be used if the camcorder does not work after 5 consecutive uses. The tape can be used twice - not sure how many 10 second cycles that works out to.
Summary: I was playing some of the MiniDV tapes that I had recorded earlier and suddenly the picture became just "snowy". Changing the tape the result was the same. Initially I thought it was a problem with the camcorder, but decided to try cleaning the head. Unfortunately none of the local stores stocked the Sony MiniDV cleaning cassette, so I ordered on line.
Summary: While shooting some function, I have noticed horizontal lines on the screen and I was wondering what is happening I tried my old tapes and found similar horizontal lines When tried to shoot, I got message “Use cleaning cassette” Immediately ordered this MiniDV cleaning cassette DVM12CLD The movement I received it, put it in my Camcorder and run on Play mode for 10 to 15 seconds I was surprised to see the results Now I can record without horizontal lines and my old tapes...
Pros: Very simple to use, cleans head in 10 seconds, Can use many times
Summary: I bought this miniDV cleaning tape for my Panasonic GS300 camcorder. After one year use, my camcorder shows that the head is dirty, but I cannot find a Panasonic cleaning tape near my home, so I bought this tape instead and it works well. The warning message is gone and the video quality is improved. It is very easy to use, just put the tape in camcorder and run it for 10 seconds. The only issue is that this cleaning tape can only be used twice.
Summary: The video head of our Sony MiniDV Camcorder was dirty. We ordered a new Sony MiniDV Cleaning Cassette from [...]. Our Sony MiniDV Camcorder works normally after running the cleaning cassette for 10 seconds.
Summary: I have Sony DCR TRV25 Mini DV camcorder since last 5 years and suing lot. It is been working fine. Recently I got problem with one JVC cassette, video came out like sticking dvd with dvd player. So far I have used sony, Panasonic, JVC, Maxell mini dv cassettes with this. Many people recommends that one should use same type of cassettes, preferably sony camcorder with sony mini dv. This is the first time I have cleaned the head.
Sony DVM-12CL Mini Digital Video Cleaning Cassette
7 September 2006
Summary: My DVD recorder was experiencing lines through the picture indicating it needed cleaned. After using the cleaning cassette for 10 seconds it was as good as new. Just what you like a product to do; do what it says it will do. Very happy with it.
Pros: Right price. Works very easy and does a great job.
Summary: I have owned Sony DCR-HC65 camcorder. Due to the quality of tape, my camcorder shows that the video head is dirty and should be cleaned as soon as possible. So I want to buy a cleaning cassette. In order to make it sure that the cassette can work well, I select the Sony-branded DVM-12CLD. When I tried to use it, it just takes 10 sec. to finish cleaning and the camcorder can work again. I recommend the cleaning cassette to anyone who owns Sony camcorder.
