Broken VHS Video Cassette

What we can repair:

  • Audio Cassette Tapes, Minicassette and Microcassette Audio Tapes

  • Broken or damaged cassette shells
  • Tangled and damaged sections of tape
  • Tape that has broken or broken off the reel
  • Cassettes that don’t work or are missing internal pieces
  • Slightly moldy tapes
  • Cassettes that have been exposed to humidity with only moderate damage

We can fix anything but some problems can be much harder to fix.

What we cannot repair:

  • Any other types of audio tape (such as Open Reel) but this may change in the future.
  • Extremely moldy tapes; this can occur after long periods of storage where mold has grown inside the tape.  This can be cleaned and the cassette repaired but in some extreme cases nothing can be done.
  • A cassette exposed to humidity multiple times which can cause the audio tape to become sticky and sometimes too brittle to work with.

You can send these types of cassettes in to us for an evaluation and we will advise you on if the tape is repairable or not.  Alternately you can send a picture of the tape or simply Contact Us and describe the problem.

Sending us your Tapes

When sending us your tapes please make sure to properly package them in a box in bubble wrap and try to avoid using packing popcorn. Also shipping using a tracking number is highly advisable. Please do not use UPS ground as their Rates for Customs Clearance into Canada are excessive compared to other couriers. If you can, please use the United States Postal Service's ground shipping as their rates are the most reasonable. To make processing your order easier please label your tapes and include detailed instructions on what services are being performed on which tapes. Turnaround time is about 1 week from the time we receive your tapes (large order may take longer).  Once the repairs have been finished we will notify you and provide a return tracking number. Rush orders are also available but are subject to a 15% fee.  If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to Contact Us.
