Put tape in new video cassette

I received a new tape through the mail, but the plastic box is cracked and pieces have fallen inside. I took out the tape and tried to put it into another plastic case, but all these things popped out and don't know where they belong. Can anyone send me a photo of the inside of the plastic case so I can see where all these little cylinders belong?

TAKING A GOOD QUALITY TAPE FROM ONE CASETTE AND MOVE TO ANOTHER WITHOUT HARMING THE TAPE QUALITY: TAKE A NEW, GOOD CASETTE AND UNSCREW THE 5 SCREWS HOLDING THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE TOGETHER. AT THIS POINT DO NOT OPEN THE CASETTE. TURN THE CASETTE UPSIDE DOWN (SO THAT THE SIDE WHERE THE SCREWS CAME OUT IS NOW SITTING DOWNWARDS ON A FLAT SURFACE) IF YOU OPEN THE CASETTE BEFORE TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN, ALL KINDS OF SMALL PIECES WILL FALL OUT AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM. NOW GENTLY SEPARATE THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE AND PAY ATTENTION TO EXACTLY WHERE THE TAPE RUNS THROUGH VARIOUS SPINDLES, ETC. MAKE A SKETCH IF THIS WILL HELP YOU. GENTLY LIFT OUT THE TAPE AND REPLACE IT WITH THE TAPE THAT WAS IN THE BROKEN CASETTE. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT THE ONLY DAMAGE WAS TO THE CASETTE ITSELF AND NOT THE TAPE. REPLACE THE TOP PART OF THE CASETTE (WITH THE SCREW HOLDS STILL FACING DOWNWARDS). HOLDING THE TWO PIECES OF THE CASETTE TIGHTLY TOGETHER, TURN IT OVER AND REPLACE THE SCREWS. TRY NOT TO HANDLE THE TAPE ITSELF. I HAVE USED RIGHT FITTING SURGEON'S GLOVES WHILE DOING THIS, BUT REALLY DON'T KNOW IF THEY HELP, BUT THEY DO KEEP THE NATURAL OILS OF THE FINGERS OFF THE TAPE.

This indicates a problem with the threading position sensor. Check that the tape path is clear and that nothing has fallen into the deck. Sometimes loose pieces of cassette labels can cause this problem. Everything must be clean.

Will not eject cassette.


When my sony did that, I checked the power to be sure it had enough power to function (unfortunately it did)---then I had to get a service manual and remove the screws in the body to get to the tape. On mine, there was a little plastic arm on the inside next to where the tape was, I had to move that plastic piece over and it released my tape. I got the service manual to make sure I could put it back together right...

Audio cassette tape broken. How do I repair?


Radio Shack used to sell a splicing block and tape for fixing broken tapes. They may still, and you can order online from other sources.

You need to pull the tape out from the cassette a little way. Overlap the tape sections a little and get them aligned, which is what the splicing block is for. Cut across both pieces and take away the scraps. This makes sure the pieces match up. Lastly you place special splicing tape over the join and trim the edges. You need the special tape, since it's designed so the adhesive won't ooze out and get on the tape recorder heads.

If the tape has come loose fro the hub inside the cassette, you need to open the housing and use the splicing tape to fasten the recording tape (actually the plastic leader tape) back in place. Depending on how the cassette was made, there may be screws holding it together, or it may have been glued. Some commercially-made music tapes and bargain-grade cassettes weren't made to be opened. If you do open the tape, don't lose the little metal piece with the felt square that goes across the opening behind the tape. This is the pressure pad that keeps the tape pressed against the head in the recorder. Without it, the tape won't work properly.

Hi8 won't eject cassette


There is a broken plastic part inside the cassette and needs to be replaced. Mostly due to cassette tape improper position and camera jam (tape jam).

E03


Day after thanksgiving, (year 2008) about to film my girls putting the tree and same E03 as all of you with the camera chewing my tapes. All of my DV cassettes are brand JVC so I know that was not the issue. I read and read and finally decided to grab a flashlight and study how the mechanism move. Then I noticed something suspicious about the right "two little spikes" attached to a white plastic piece that, when close, it moves to the right side of the camera head (the round stainless wheel inside). The white plastic piece mentioned above, part of it came off the guiding tiny little rail. 1. So I opened the tape compartment with an EJECT command, 2. Close it back up with an inmediate unplug of the camera without battery so it will stay in a position where I can get my fingers and paper clip inside. 3. With the paper clip, stretch the guiding rail in such a way that it widens so the bottom of the white plastic thingy can get back in the guiding rail. 4. Put a cassette inside and FFWD, PLAY or RWD and problem fixed.

Email me if you have any questions. Happy filming!
