  1. Wondering if anyone can advise on what may be causing these dark horizontal lines coming from my Panasonic AG-1980? I have cleaned the heads and tape path with 99% isopropyl. There was some minor dirt, but nothing that seemed really bad. The cleaning does not seem to have corrected the problem. Regards.

  4. Are those lines static, or do they move across the picture like a haze?

  5. I had this same thing with my 1980 after I cleaned it with 99%, buy a brand new blank VHS tape, and play it 3 or 4 times the whole way through. That worked for me.
