It seems like your carriage unit needs servicing.. basically the gears that load the tape and move the tape wheels have become worn.. You can attempt to repair this your self at the risk of rendering it useless. YOu can call a service center and let ... Digital Cameras

I have a problem with the Panasonic AJ-D200. The tape will not close. The symptom developed after I loaded a head cleaning cassette. I then loaded a normal tape and now it won't close. I then changed this tape drive for a spare drive. Powered up the camera and tried again. I loaded a head cleaning cassette. Then loaded a normal cassette and now this one won't close. The problem seems to be with this head cleaning cassette but I cannot risk using another spare tape deck. I cannot see the

Since I bought my HDR-HC1E in December 2005 I enjoyed really my camera, but since a few years now I have experienced so many times a warning about 'moist condensation' then I have to 'eject tape'. This just doesn't work for a long time. It is very tedious and I only found out by accident a way to overcome this problem is by ejecting the mini DV cassette (but keep the mini DV tape in the cassette holder), switching off the camera, remove the battery. Close the cassette holder and then slide in th

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)

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still


The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand ta ... Digital Cameras

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

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.
