Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC1000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Very bad sound and tape transport noise (capstan part) Reaction sony service: it's belongs to a dv-minicamcorder, some have more noise and some less. So, some extra you did.nt pay for: rumble! And that for a lot of money, shame!!!!!
SOURCE: not reading Hi8 tapes
Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

The mechanical of tape loading compartment is misaligned and it needs readjustment which is a bit technical issue. Please contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of tape loading path assembly.
This will solve your problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
