Repair broken or defect tapes
We can repair your broken or defect tapes, so that we can transfer the material afterwards.
Tapes can break on many ways: because of a broken camcorder, accidents etc. We have even repaired tapes that have been completely squashed. It is also often still possible to make sticky tapes playable again. Depending on the type of adhesion by baking the tapes or by chemical treatment.
The repair will be carried out professionally and the tape will be tested after repair. After repairing the tapes, we recommend that the material is immediately converted to a new image/sound carrier and that the tapes are no longer used. We advise you to let us do that, because pasted tape is bad for the heads of your equipment.
