Wrapping it up!
Here are some frequently asked questions about video tape repair.
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.
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.
We are very sorry, but there is no way to reclaim images from a tape that has been erased or recorded over.
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.

DVDs have been the state-of-the-art for more than ten years in the video and home movie transfer industry. In fact, Home Video Studio still transfers video to DVDs for our customers who request that service.
But there's a new kid in town - The DVA - the Home Video Studio - Video in the Cloud. DVA is the latest technology and it is fast becoming the media of choice. These days we most often transfer everyone's old VHS, BetaMAX, 8mm and Mini DV tapes to DVAs rather than DVDs.
