      The instructions were not specific enough as to use the product. Two of the steps were reversed. It took several tries before the cleaner worked somewhat. I had to call the company, which sent me a couple of replacements, which were easier to understand. They even had a check-off stub to keep track of the times the product was used. Although the original item I bought and second replacement I received had the same item #, they were obviiously manufactured at different times. I'm hoping that the cleaning process for either cleaner will work well now that I have the full information for its use.

                Excellent tape head cleaner. Get them before supplies run out and you can no longer clean your VCR tape heads.

                                      Used this to clean a VHS player. It did seem to improve playback quality. But not sure how it will work over time. The instructions say to:
                                      "Play for 30 sec and then stop and eject. When the tape reaches the end rewind to the beginning."
                                      Well the cleaning tape is only 30 sec long. So for multiple cleanings you're basically using the same piece of cleaning media. So time will tell if it continues to clean.

                                              I went back to my other head cleaner that uses a cleaning solution. This one messed up the head alignment, but it corrected after I used the old head cleaner again.

                                                    i AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT. IT DID A GREAT JOB ON MY 4 YEAR OLD LG VCR. I CHECKED THROUGH OUT MINNEAPOLIS FOR A HEAD CLEANER FOR MY VCR BUT WAS TOLD BY MOST STORES, THAT THEY WERE NO LONGER AVAILABLE. A FRIEND SUGGESTED YOU, AND IT AND THE MAXELL HIGH QUALITY TAPES WERE SHIPPED QUICKLY. NEITHER ITEMS COULD BE FOUND IN MINNEAPOLIS OR ST. PAUL. AFTER RECEIVING MINE, I CHECKED WITH [@]I...THEY DID HAVE A HEAD CLEANER.... 5 TIMES THE PRICE OF THE ONE I RECEIVED FROM YOU. I APPRECIATE THE COST SAVINGS AND THE FAST SHIPPING. EVELYN WILSON

                                                      I am starting big project to convert many very old VHS tapes to DVD. This cleaner makes sure I'll get the best possible output from the VHS player. "God is in the details." Cleaning the tape-player heads makes so much sense when spending lots of time and money on this project.

                                                          Ordered 3 0f this cleaner because it appears that VCR Cleaner Cassettes are not being carried at many retailers any longer. Have used it in the past and found it to be very satisfactory. I have many VCR tapes that I hope to continue to view for several more years.

                                                            With all the changes in the home video recording field I feel lucky that this item is still available. I bought 2 because I thought it might become unavailable soon. I have trusted the Maxell brand name for 35 years now.
