Question 2 months ago on Step 2.
I have a 60 cassette attache case filled with prerecorded cassettes like The Beatles Rarities, Bachman Turner Overdrive, etc. The case was stored on its "spine" with the handle on top on a shelf and the case was with one end behind a heat duct.
I don't think that it was the heat that created the issue because when the furnace was running, nothing else on the shelf felt noticeably warm. Another thing that could have caused the issue is that these cassettes were never played over the past 12 years.
The cassettes were left there like described. The problem is this. I finally got around to playing Beatles Rarities and it sounded wobbly, also as if the tape was stretched but it wasn't, and it sounded like there were no vocals but music. A friend suggested to get a pencil and wind it back and forth. I tried that but when going to play the cassette and it reached the end and the dual cassette deck that has auto reverse that if one cassette reached the end of one side, this would activate the other deck to play the other cassette, the finished cassette deck didn't disengage and did not allow the other cassette to start.
If I didn't physically press stop on that deck, it would have been the end of the cassette deck; the unit would have been destroyed. May you please show me how to fix these cassettes? It will prevent a loss in hundreds of dollars in cassettes. Answer 2 months ago. First off, make sure your cassette deck is fully functional. Use a tape from another stash if you have to.

The introduction of HDTV video production necessitated a medium for storing high-definition video information. The first consumer videocassette recorders VCR were launched in based around Sony U-matic technology. Philips entered the domestic market the following year with the N At first VCRs and videocassettes were very expensive, but by the late s the price had come down enough to make them affordable to a mainstream audience. Videocassettes finally made it possible for consumers to buy or rent a complete film and watch it at home whenever they wished, rather than simply catching it at a movie theater or having to wait until it was telecast.
It gave birth to video rental stores, Blockbuster the largest chain, which lasted from about to It also made it possible for a VCR owner to begin time-shifting the recording of films and other television programs straight from the transmission. This caused an enormous change in viewing practices, as one no longer had to wait for a repeat of a program that had been missed. The shift to home viewing also changed the movie industry's revenue streams, because home renting created an additional window of time in which a film could make money.

Another factor for movie rental stores is that DVDs are smaller and take less space to store. As well, a viewer who wants to skip ahead to the end of a movie can do so much faster with a DVD than with a VHS tape which has to be rewound.
DVDs can have interactive menus, multiple language tracks, audio commentaries, Closed Captioning and subtitling with the option of turning the subtitles on or off, or selecting subtitles in several languages. Moreover, a DVD can be played on a computer. Due to these advantages, by the mids, DVDs were the dominant form of prerecorded video movies in both the rental film and new movie markets. In the late s and early s, though, consumers continued to use VCRs to record over-the-air TV shows, because consumers could not make home recordings onto DVDs.
