Tape stuck in Digital 8 (Moisture Condensation?)

I own a Sony Digital 8 Handycam.My tape is stuck and won't release. I also found out that it has a problem with moisture condensation, at least according to the error code and warning beeps. I will leave the door open and wait a few hours to see if that helps. What are your suggestions? Thanks you, sincerely visualtea.

I DID NOT USE MY TVR460 VIDEO CAMERA FOR 3 YEARS. NOW IT IS NOT RECORDING OR PLAYING ANY TAPE. IT CAN RECORD AND PLAY ONLY ON SONY MEMORY STICK.


Recording / Playback head is metal with a thin gap which quickly becomes corroded from simple condensation - unless stored with water absorbent material in airtight container. Sorry, (you needed a newer model anyway) ;-'

Canon hi-8 camcorder will not playback recordings. full battery. ejects tape during playback


It sounds like the tape isn't turning and the player thinks it's to the end of the tape and ejecting it.Perhaps when you rewind its drawing the tape up so tight the sensor thinks it's at the end.Take the tape out and see if you can turn it by hand to release the tension.There's got to be some form of release mechanism to let the tape free wheel.Once loose I'll bet it will playback just fine.
