Yes please. Would still like to know if there a local expert . One adviser has told me th throw the device away but I wonder if it is salvageable enough to at least retrieve the pictures already recorded.

HiHow did this work out please?Anthony
Don't know. Haven't yet had time to source a cleaning tape (I'm in Mosman, Sydney, Australia). Will try to find one reasonably priced locally.
