     Typical Audio Cassette Tape Problems

    We can repair most cassette problems. The most common repairs are tapes that have broken and tapes that get stuck and stop while playing back. We recommend transferring the repaired cassette to CD as the tape will most likely break again.

    We were able to repair all the examples below

    Broken tape 

    Melted on a car dashboard

    The dog ate my tape!

    Burned in a house fire

    Run over by a car

    You tried to repair it yourself !!!!
    Yes I have actually done a couple of these. It is extremely difficult and time consuming. The cost for putting this back together is $25 and hour will take 1-3 hours. It looks like a nightmare, and believe me, it is! 


    Typical Video Tape Problems

    All of the problems were fixed.

    Tape has come off the reel on one side

    Tape just came out

    You tried to fix it yourself

    Melted in a fire

    Your machine ate the tape

    Broken in half

    Tape got smashed


    Flood - Water Damaged Tapes

    It's not the water itself that causes problems, but chemicals and contaminants that are left behind when the water dries; the good news is that very often only a small portion of tape is directly exposed to a chemical reaction, leaving the majority of the tape and footage recoverable.

    We use a variety of tools and techniques when working on flood damaged tapes and can recover footage from cassettes caked in mud to tapes that have been soaked in salt water. The repair and cleaning process depends entirely on the individual tape.

    The overall success rate with flood damage recovery is very high, but if it turns out that your tapes cannot be repaired to our standards with the majority of their footage recovered there will not be any charge to you.


    All tape repairs are 19.95 for each tape. If you have more than 5 tapes, the price is reduced to 14.95.
