I had a VCR that was dirty from an old tape, when I used the head cleaner it cleared lines in the video signal right up.

Hard to find, worth it though.

this item is hard to find due to everything going blue-ray these days. but if you still have some old VHS tapes that you like to view and the VCR is a little cloudy, this will clear it up.

  • Yes. I have used them before. It would not play. It shut down my vcr machine. I finally got my machine cleaned by using my old vcr cleaner again and again.

  • Yes, full size VHS tape that you just use and follow the directions. I mark the times I use it with a /. Just for a count.

  • Since the process requires the tape to run through the heads, NO. Your machine will eat this cleaner tape as well.

  • It should be used to prevent this but since it is already happening, my suggestion is to use this tape repeatedly to try and clean it good before you play another tape. And if you have a rewinder, use that and not the player to rewind your tapes. This will help too.

  • A dry head lleaner will not solve the problem of a video deck "eating" tapes. This is usually caused by a machine that is badly out of alignment or has a broken video head. It can also be caused by a damaged videocassette, that can in turn damage your video deck. WillSRQ

  • if your VCR is eating tapes, I would not recommend this product, as this product is kind of tricky to use, it may eat the tape that the cleaner cart. uses. the product is easy to use if you do not have a problem with your VCR, just that if your machine eats tapes, it might eat the cleaner tape, too.

  • HI I DOUBT it, they only thing to do is TRY it, as the cost is cheap enough...Its probably time to find another VCR if you can find one perhaps on line sights Wallmart, Amazon, Ebay. Its been my experience that trying to have Vcr repaired is NOT worth the Money or searching for someone who repairs them! GOOD LUCK..if YOU FIND A NEW VCR BETTER BUY AN EXTRA AS THEY ARE GETTING HARDER & HARDER TO FIND new!!!

  • dear frank,i do not think so.if your vcr is eating up your tapes,i think you need a new vcr can buy a new vcr/dvd combo at walmart for $ need to use the cleaner after every 30 showings.frequently used tapes can also cause problem.again i do not think cleaner will work when vcr eats up tape.will eat up cleaner tape also.

  • As far as I know it is only meant to clean the heads on your VCR when your tapes are blurry or streaky. It worked good for that.
