Ran across this post and wondered about the answer given. I wonder, could this be a reason for a tape playing great, then within seconds, interference begins building and the camcorder quickly goes to bluescreen and no timecode movement? Sometimes a slight rewind will get the playback looking okay, but it is erratic and may do it again if I leave the room at any time.

I use a Sony TRV530 to feed consumer video 8 and Hi-8 tapes to a DVD recorder. I’m seeing this behavior often now. It’s quite difficult cleaning the heads manually. Is there a suggested cleaner or system for the 8mm camcorders?
