Good luck.

yes you can "Rig" something up,but make sure you are using the right voltage as well as the right milliamps the cam is made to recieve.this is Very important. and of course make sure the wires you are using to power the cam are not touching or crossing each other at any time, and they do not touch the wrong contact in the camera as well. I have found using a piece of cardboard and taping the wires to it, keeps the wires seperated. good luck, and take your time when connecting your wires.

This sounds very much like a tape jam and the camera is trying to un-load the tape but it is stuck round the capstan, run the tape back a little if you can, that should release it from it's snag area okay.

Yes, when both lights are on.. it means the battery is charging. The "charging" light should turn off once the battery is fully charged.

If the "charging" light remains on 12 or more hours later, your battery might need to be replaced.

That monster looks old. My guess is that the battery is not holding enough of a charge and may need replacement. Can you plug this into the wall for power? Are you getting any error codes?

If you have not already tried it, use a wet or dry tape in an attempt to clean the video head, I recommend the dry tape because it is easier on the mechanism. The other option is to use a store bought blank tape and run it on sp mode the fastest speed and let it run through. If you still have trouble, buy a swab kit with cleaning fluid from Radio Shack, open the door so you can clearly see the video head. Now dip the swab in cleaning fluid and put swab against the head "gently" use the other hand "top part" to manually turn the head one or more times around for a deep cleaning and allow several minutes to dry, this a good opportunity to clean the rollers and other parts with Q-Tips and fluid to finish the job. If none of these work it probably indicates a bad video head.

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history.

I hope this helps.

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue.
Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

I understand you have a problem. What is not clear from your description, however, is the actual nature of the problem. Please can you state it more clearly. Thank you.
