Wrapping it up!

Here are some frequently asked questions about video tape repair.


  • What kinds of problems can Home Video Studio fix?

    Most frequently, a customer brings us a tape that is stuck in a VCR. Often, the customer has tried to take the tape out of the machine, but some of the tape remains caught in the machine. Of course, we can fix it. We also can repair or replace damaged or video cassette shells and jammed cassette doors. If parts of a tape are damaged beyond repair, we can salvage the remaining tape and create a splice so that the tape will play again. We can also repair video tape that has come off the reels inside the shell.

  • What about smoke, water or mold damage?

    Damage from smoke, water, and mold are much harder issues to deal with. We will need to see the actual tape in order to give you an evaluation. We'll let you know if we can help, and if so, to what degree. We have been successful over the years with these kinds of problems.

  • My tape has been erased! Can you help recover the images?

    We are very sorry, but there is no way to reclaim images from a tape that has been erased or recorded over.

  • I have an 8mm tape that I can see when I fast forward, but it does not play correctly when I just press the play button. Can you help?

    This problem is a special situation, one that we need to evaluate on our professional equipment. Sometimes we can help, so please give us a call to discuss this problem.

  • The picture from my video tape has lines on it when I play it on my VCR. Can you help with this?

    Yes. This may be simply a tracking control problem. Many times your tapes will play better on our professional VCRs. Please call us for more help with this issue.

  • Can you put my video tape onto a DVD after you are done repairing it?

    Yes! That's a great idea, and we highly recommend it. Video tapes are deteriorating every day. We'll transfer your tape to a Platinum Archival DVD, complete with label imprint and scene selection.

  • How long will it take to get my tape repaired?

    Most video tape repairs require only a couple of days. We have faster service available, including "while you wait" if you're really in a hurry! Just ask about our "rush repair and transfer" services.

  • Can I ship my broken tape to you for repair?

    Yes. We suggest you ship by UPS. Our shipping address is: 110 Jewel Box Drive Stephenson, VA 22656 Please include your name, address, and telephone number with area code. Also, include a short note on what is wrong with your tape.

  • How do I pay for your service?

    If you're bringing your tape to our location, you may pay when you stop by. If you are shipping your tape to us, please call us before shipping so we can give you the correct amount to include with your repair order. You may pay by check or major credit card.

We look forward to discussing and resolving your tape repair problems with you. Give us a call today!
