Once when this happened to me, I took it to a repair shop and they said it just needed to be cleaned. (Optura PI tape won't eject)

    Tape mechanism malfunctions can be due to many factors. A bad gear is the most likely cause and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.
    My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

    hi from what i understand by "eat" is that the coil is popped out what it means is that the coil leader is misplaced and letting it to run free out of place this can be fixed by you if you will find what had gone wrong in that path (broken pin, cog etc...) and glue it back or fix the missing element in place good luck

    That is similar to the Sony model and that has a switch to change input to output hidden as on the Sony it is dedicated to video in, unless it is changed.
