  1. I need advice on how to efficiently clean the heads of this camcorder. I don't have the cleaning tape and it's quite difficult to get to the head of it.

    Does anyone have this model? Some usage and care suggestions, I appreciate it!

    You will this to clean. Each time just play about 10 seconds. Other brands like JVC or Sony are just fine.



    It's not advisable to record video on mini DV tape. It's an obsolete technology. Its main purpose now is for playback/converting from mini DV tape to digital file. Panasonic is not going to repair even if you are willing to pay a high price.

    Do you have this model??? I need to get the drum head to clean it manually, because there is fungus stuck in this bearing, it won't come out with any cleaning tape.
