How do VHS video tapes deteriorate?
A VHS video tape wears out a small amount every time it is played, the tape loses its magnetic signal over time, the quality and colour of the video deteriorates because of the friction between the tape head and tape. As the tape becomes more fragile it might lead to it breaking apart. Video tapes can even deteriorate when not in use, especially if stored in damp conditions. The analog process that was used to create vhs tape recordings meant the images were stored onto a magnetic tape. Over time, these images can fade because of different factors and will begin to look grainy as they reduce in quality. Video tape footage transferred to DVD or digital video file will last much longer since the digital codes saved to DVDs and digital videos are higher compared to analog tapes.
