I've acquired an older Minolta 8mm video camera: the tape door opened, but tape was caught inside. I wiggled the tape out, and now the door won't close. I suspect I bent the closing aperature(s) or ?? Where can I get this repaired? I live between Louisville, Ky (to my south) and Columbus, Indiana (to my north). Thanks much!

Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

Samsung camcorder Hi, I have a samsung video camcorder model VP-D107i which has only been used several times. I needed to use it last week to video my husbands funeral service and after charging the battery the cam wouldn't turn on at all, won't eject the tape, won't do anything, it just ticks like a clock. I have many memories on the mini dv tapes that I can't see without it. Help me please!

Just bought a Sharp VL-ZL at a yard sale. Great price but I'm beginning to see why. First came the 'dew' issue, but I read here what that is and what to try. The next day a new problem occurred, and this one's not only weird, but I can't find anyone online with a similar issue. The cassette door will not stay closed with a tape inserted. Take the tape out and it closes fine. Any thoughts? Thanks.
