how do I clean the factory tape player heads? I am getting that 's hiss' even with the dolby noise reduction. Can I just stick a Q-tip in there or are there special products? Thanks.

Go to any store that has an electronics department and get the tape cleaner/demagnetizer. Don't do the qtip thing, I tried it already, with alcohol on the swab to add insult to injury. It'll lrun you about $10, I think. You're supposedly supposed to use it after every 20 hours of playing time, though once a month should do it...

yeah, last night before I got your post I tried the qtip and alcohol, but it didn't do much. I'll go grab a cassette cleaner today. Thanks
