Weird noise from tape drive

Hi, i just wanna check. i have this camera as mentioned above, and the tape drive wouldn't shut and it keeps making weird noise. the left tape head is like rolling, but there's this white mechanism that keeps tattering, like "tat-tat-tat". it will be great if you could figure out what's wrong with it. thanks...

That weird noise you are hearing is the mode motor trying to drive the mechanism. On these units, in order to engage play, fast forward, rewind, etc there is motor (called a mode motor) the drives the mechanism into the different "modes". There is also a mode sensing switch that tells the machine when it has reached a certain mode. What has likely happened is that the mode switch has failed for whatever reason, so the mode motor is being driven beyond the normal positions for the mechanism. The short answer is that you will probably have to have a technician look at it for you.

Why is my Samsung RF26XAERS refrigerator repetitively chiming, and how can I fix it?


NOISE? from the fridge inside? or from the outside compressor? In overstressed compressor or low freon level will make weird noises? a bad fan in freezer will? Even seen bad ice makers make weird noises? if the ice making is hindered by obstructions?

Whatever happened, the engine computer sensed it and turned on the light. You will have to have the computer scanned for the trouble codes- a tech or mechanic could then follow the codes to find the problem.

2008 toyota tacoma whistling noise


I don't know how loud the noise is, but its weird that you mention 50 mph. At that speed or above you are keep a constant rpm level. I say this because it might just be your air box loose and the sound of the intake air is making it. A 2008 truck should not have any major problem. Sometimes an alternator will sing or whine but never heard anyone say something is whistling. One other thing is sometimes for some reason ive heard a noise like that coming from the speakers of my car that goes up and down with the speed of the motor, but that was when I was tinkering with speakers and sub outs and amps. Thats all I can think of.

Strange noise


Unusual noises that start after a mechanical device is dropped are never good regardless of the device. I would suspect that something is physically bent or out of alignment and continuing to use the camera risks additional damage. As to if you should still use it that depends on how much its worth to you and if you plan on repairing it later.

Most likely cause would be rubber belt driving the take-up reel is broken or stretched (stretching would have been a slowly worsening problem) Not easy to get at , find a shop with old school tech and price shouldn't be too bad .
