Hey all, about a month ago I got my first lens hit. Since then all the tapes I have used glitch out. What raises my concern is that my tape heads seem to be clean and it is not my cap cam. Has anyone else experienced this and knows what to do? Hopefully these pics help, if not I'll try to take better ones.

You can't tell if heads are clean by looking. The drum may be nice and clean but the actual heads can barely be seen with the eye, and they're black. An impact can produce all kinds of side effects from blocking heads, or alignment problems, to board fracturing. I'd say try running a head cleaner through once or twice. If that doesn't do the trick, I'll be glad to have a look if you want to send it in.
