Cassette head cleaning question/problem

Post by flw » Sun Aug 29, 2010 3:57 pm

I have looked in the cassette housing and cannot see the Read head for cleaning. I've done this many times back in the day but it seems retracted so I cannot clean it.

Suggestions on getting access to the head ? If I could see it, I can clean it.

Thanks, Dan

What about a cleaning cassette? One of those cassettes that has cleaning material instead of tape. Some are dry, some you put solvent on the tape. Just insert it and "play" for a minute or so to clean the head.
