Looks like I will might need a new recording/playback head…

Customer Question
Looks like I will...

Looks like I will might need a new recording/playback head on my very faithful, longlasting CVD-1000. Ran cleaner tape several times. Seems to work for awhile, then back to the distorted/squiggly playback. Have MANY original tapes left to edit. HELP!

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your CVD-1000?

Have to check. Probable over 10 years. It's been working great until today. No signs of irregular performance.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Running non-liquid tape cleaner. Probably at least 4-5 times.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Hopefully a Sony facility is available somewhere !!!

Unfortunately, due to the age of the device, Sony will not even repair it.
