My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this...


It sounds like the tape itself is damaged. Get an head cleaner cassett and clean the mechanism. This will clean the wheels and heads that tape runs over. Also try a new tape cassett to see what happens and listen to the camcorder for any crunching sounds as this would suggest that something has broken inside the camcorder.

Good luck.
