So I have a VX-2000 and I’m suspecting that the heads on it are damaged.
I got the normal dirty head symtoms so I went and bought a head cleaner cassette tape (it’s a JVC but it says that it will work with all brands…thats all I could get at the time). So I used it for about 10 seconds, it was working great and all of the sudden when I put another tape in it started to get really really bad, the picture was very pixalated and there is no audio. I tried cleaning it again for another 10 seconds and it made almost no difference. The camera is what like 6 years old so I think that it could just be wearing out, but it was working perfectly just a couple days ago.
If anyone knows anything then that would be great. Thanks for the help.

hmm…did you use the right head cleaner? I’m pretty sure there is wet and dry head cleaner. The manual should specify which to use.

i would bet that the camera, if you want to continue using it, needs to be serviced at an authorized center.

I agree with Johnboy I think it is time to have looked at and fixed. It probably needs a tune up
