Can dirty head to be the reason for the lack of images from VCR (VCR)?
Yes, maybe there really clogged head and was often cleaning is necessary. A common cause of pollution: poor quality film and videotapes. It then appeared "cleaning cartridges" (although, to be honest, sense from them was not enough... and "auto-purge" in the VCR
As the practice of repair, neither auto clean nor the tape could not efficiently clean the video heads, I had my own cleaning technology, which I enjoyed coming to such challenges (smooth paper and alcohol )
