GS400 dropping frames - help needed - head cleaning?

Hi,

My Panasonic GS400 (which has had little use) has recently started skipping whilst playing back tapes I've recorded on it earlier. I get jumps in the picture and drop-outs in the audio.

I've tried using a Panasonic head cleaning tape with limited success. This is a dry-type cleaner - I'm wondering if there is a wet-type cleaner available, or if other people have encountered this problem and know how to fix it.

I use mainly Panasonic and TDK mini-DV tapes (which I believe are made in the same factory).

Thanks,

Dave
