Used VX2100

I just got a used VX2100 off e-bay and the guy who sold it said the Cam was never used to record to tape. (that's what he said) He always used it as a video feed to a firestore. My question is should I clean the heads first before using trying to record something?
The camera was brought from B&H in Feb of 2006

No harm in using a head cleaner - no harm at all. Read the instructions on the box first.

Definitely you should run the head cleaner.
