Video Tape Tips
ISSUES with VIDEO TAPES over TIME:
It's a FACT that VHS tapes, from the 70's, 80's, 90's and newer, have ALL begun to, and continue to, disintegrate as soon as they were manufactured.
These plastic based video and audio tapes are turning back into the dust from which they came.
Usually, the FIRST sign of degradation of these tapes is loss of video and/or audio quality.
The SECOND sign is usually that the tape sticks to itself within the reel inside the tape cassette and breaks!
***DO NOT THROW A BROKEN TAPE CASSETTE AWAY!***
WE CAN USUALLY FIX THESE BROKEN TAPES and recover almost ALL of the tape.
Other things that can happen to video tapes is that they begin to get brittle and will just break like old aged plastic does like an old plastic water bottle.
Tapes also tend to grow mold on them. Sometimes this is noticeable by the naked eye! The mold will usually be either white or black or sometimes a green algae type of growth.
TAPE STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS:
It is ALWAYS recommended to leave a tape in it's FULLY REWOUND or FULLY FORWARDED setting.
- This means when you are done watching your tape, you should ALWAYS leave the tape wound all the way to the beginning, or all the way to the end of the tape.
- This prevents the main portion of your tape from being fully exposed to air, which is what causes increased degradation (oxidation).
- Leaving your tape wound up is the best and most preventative measure to keep it from degrading as quickly as it would otherwise!
Another preventative measure is to keep your tapes in a controlled environment! Tapes should be kept in a COOL DRY place, not outside in a storage building or under the home in a box...
