Forums JVC Cameras Head Cleaner Tape Won’t Play in Deck

  • Head Cleaner Tape Won’t Play in Deck

    Searched and could not find anything.

    I bought a used BR DV-3000. Everything is working fine. I am working on a large project to capture a large volume of old mini DV tapes.

    I have a Mini DV Head Cleaner tape. I tried to play it and it seems not to work at all. Only plays for about 2 seconds and then stops. So I thought since it was old, maybe it ran out.

    Bought some new ones online. Same issue.


    Or do I have to clean the heads with a larger tape? This deck also supports the larger DV tapes.

    That might be it, but I thought I’d ask.
