i have 8 older tapes 3-8 yrs old.they played back fine a year ago & now they are distorted on the right side. I ran a cleaner through my sony 350 camcorder & it still does it. I took one of the tapes & recorded footage on it at the end to see if it still did it. my playback is fine now but not on any of my other tapes. are my tapes dirty or what?any help would be appreciated.

I found this on the 8mm tapes I digitised recently. The right hand 10 pixels or so was a nice shade of green. the bottom 5 pixels were black and white and distorted.

I couldn't solve the problem and just cropped off the junk when I edited the video together.
