I cannot play back my recording. I had no problem with recording but when I tried to play back the cassette seemed to be empty, cannot see anything. Even those cassettes that I have recorded before, could be played before now I cannot play them anymore, they seem to be empty cassettes. So could anyone help me to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot

the read/record head is probably aged.

i dont know if the read and record function is on the same head.
and i dont know how easy it is to get a replacement cartridge.
but the price of digital video recording devices are at such a low price.. perhaps its better to buy something new with a warranty.
