My GR_SMX730U VHS camcorder is eating the tape.It uses a PRO TC-30 casset.


that means the head is sticky or the takeup rollers are icky
take it apart . clean all the parts the tape touches with something thats strong but little water .
as for the head very carefull clean it when you get to the actual holes where heads are only use a proper qtip wetted . look it up or youll break them.
on the rubber rollers scrub them . then load the tape an watch it run.
its easy to fix this but you need a nice clean place an some small phillips , take pics of parts/screws if needed

When i select print I hear it running but label does not move. I changed batteries and I cleaned roller. Is the piece across from the roller suppose to move to guide the label thru?


The rubber roll is supposed to do it. Since it is clean, pull out some tape and try again. Otherwise, please contact our help desk. The numbers are at dymo.com.

Cassette gets entangled, and does not play well


Cassette tape machines will occasional require maintenance after a certain period of usage. First open the cassette door and remove the tape and any broken tape remaining inside. Some models allow you to remove the cassette door allowing you to have better access to clean the unit. Next you will need to clean the capstan with alcohol and a Q-tip. The capstan is the metal post which the rubber wheel (pinch roller) pushes against to drive the tape across the tape head. Basically clean all the shiny metal parts including the tape head. Some of the tape residue may be difficult to clean, I use Tricloroetilene which has been regulated by the government, but you may try a product called Goof Off to clean the difficult parts, but it could eat the plastic and rubber parts so be careful. Next use a rubber cleaner on the pinch roller so you do not dry the rubber out, or it will become useless. The other problem is the cassette may be driven by a motor and belts. The belts may need to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned. For this you will need to disassemble the unit to access the belts but the cleaning of the pinch roller and capstan may fix your problem, if not you need to open it up to replace the main belt.

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.

Re: Model PV-4523S


You can try cleaning it with a VCR tape cleaner to see if the pinch roller have build up on there. It could be that the motor isnt feeding the tape up against the recording heads properly and may need an adjustment. If you can take the top cover off, you should be to see what the problem is by the way the tape is being inserted into the machine.

Canon uc-1 video 8mm camcorder


Yes it can be fixed, but Canon is not the easiest to work on. Is the connector loose at all? The audio head may be dirty. This is not on the spinning heads. If you look inside and locate the pinch roller (rubber roller), there should be a silver head that looks like a cassette tape head. Try cleaning that using a cotton swab and alcohol. See if that resolves the problem.

Keep us posted.

Vidio tapes are chewing up


This is the number one failure mode for a tape machine.
One drive is used to pull the tape out and run it across the heads very accurately, and another drive is used to pull the tape back into the cassette. This one uses a clutch to allow it to slip so that the takeup reel in the cassette can vary in speed depending on how much tape is on it. After a few years, it slips too much and can't pull the tape in fast enough. (older units use rubber idler wheels to do the same thing)
Either tighten up the clutch, or replace the rubber wheel.
Hope Ya Fix It!
