Before you go to all that trouble please note: There are a qazillian different heads and just about always are not interchangable between models and brands.

That being said do this:

Go to your local paint store or to the drug store and purchase a quart of Denatured Alchohol. The word Denatured is extremely important.

Get an old bed sheet that you intend to throw away and tear a small piece from it.

Take the VCR top cabinet off and place the alchohol soaked (Wet/damp not dripping wet) cloth on the side of the head cylinder and hold still in one position. With the other hand rotate the upper cylinder so that the heads pass through the alchohol soaked cloth.

Important: Do not move the cloth in a vertical direction or you will break off the heads.

The SP and EP speeds use different heads and you do indeed have a dirty head.

Make sure that you wait for the alchohol to evaproate completely before trying to use or your machine will eat any tape inserted.

Also please note: You will spend about 5~7 dollars on the alchohol plus your time. You can purchase a new VCR for $35.00 and Yes, You can purchase new for $35.00 It's all up to you.

Hope this helps
