I have a canon gl2 and it was working great for a while,but then I started getting these digital block distortion on the left side of the picture,and sometimes I get some white specs that roll through the picture.I’ve tried cleaning tapes and it kinda worked but not for long.I heard the tapes are bad for the heads anyway.another videographer told me to use denatured alcohol and some long q-tips,but he didn’t explain how to do it.does anyone out there who can help,please.
Forget about alcohol & q-tips, especially if you’re all thumbs with tech stuff. Also, I don’t really recommend cleaner tapes either, they worn out the heads. Get them cleaned professionally. Go to a service, they’ll know what to do.
