Well … this could be true. The info so far is dirty heads, misaligned heads, fluro lights, mobile phone interference (via radio mic), pool pump interference, etc … The one that the hire place was most adamant on was the TDK tapes. Lots of metal in the tapes apparently. As the tape gets pulled tighter, the metal on the tape builds up and drags the tape across the heads, rather than pulling it across the heads. They said that the FUJI tapes have far less metal in them.
So, I may be getting no truth, a bit of truth, or all of the truth about this issue. Good lessons learned, but, I have no idea how to avoid this again.
