Yes - I know tape based camcorders are history but I still need mine to get all of the older footage I shot into my computer.
However, I can't access the heads very well simply by opening the cassette door - especially the big round silver thingy at the botton that play the tapes.
I tried taking the door off - but there is a small screw in the hingh part of the door that I can't get my screwdriver to work on as it keeps sliding off. So I can't get that screw out and I don't want to press too hard for fear of bending it.
How do I clean the heads?
How do I get the door off so I can access them?
It's really hard to get at those heads with the door on!
