Try this:
1. make sure the tape is not loose - turn one end to tighten
2. make sure the head is clean - try a qtip or slightly damp swap long enough to reach and clean the head (silver drum but please be extra careful not to use to much force there is a litte haed that reads the tape and if you get any strands caught on here it will be hard to get out) the head will spin but clean and hold as much as possible because the head is harder to clean while spinning and the head is in between that has a very small slot to see it but it is close to the gapped seem of the haed
3. if you can fwd and rewind tape
4. make sure nothing is stuck in like and torn tape pieces

I have a GE CG818A Camcorder, when I play it it only plays black and white. Was wondering if there is a used Sony or any camcorder that would play my Video8 P6-120MP tape, in color.


I have the exact same camera and same exact same problem. Any analog Video8 or Hi-8 camcorder or VCR will play these tapes.

By using the same cassettes as Hi8, many (NOT ALL) Digital8 (produced by Sony exclusively) camcorders are able to play analog Video8/Hi8 recordings, preserving compatibility with already recorded analog tapes.

you can connect Digital8 camcorders to your computer to download your movies for editing or Internet use.

As of 2008, Digital8 camcorders have been removed from the equipment offered by Sony.

My video cam doesnt eject my cartridge once i played it.it turns off and never stops beeping


The short beep and shut off indicates that the camcorder is not loading up. it could be a faulty head cylinder motor / loading motor or the safety mechansim faulty. you will need a lot of expertise to open and check within as the job involves delicate touch. Check if the dew switch is on if so just keep the camcorder in a warm place for some time and try. If the cylinder is not rotating then it is the failure of the drive or the hall ics. check this out with a tech hand. Good day

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera


Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.
Thanks.

CAMCORDER'S TAPE IS STUCK, WHEN I PRESS EJECT, THE OUTER COMPARTMENT OPENED BUT THE TAPE COMPARTMENT DID NOT. IT WILL NOT GO DOWN ALSO?


You might have a sony handycam? If so, it is a manufacturers problem that came with the camera. Mine does this all the time, just slap the outside of it and it works. I know it sounds harsh - only do this if you have a sony handycam.
