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

Cassette deck will not open


It could be three things: 1) This can occur for when the image reading head of the camera is dirty and dusty, and the rubber rollers that drive the tape get contaminated as well. Either can result in the tape itself becoming caught on a rubber roller, (it wraps around the roller 10 or so times because the roller is driven by a motor) until the tape rolls expand the rollers outer diameter until it jams, and then jams the opening lever, or mechanism.
Fixing is difficult, as access to the (usually 2) screws that connect the cassette holder to the opening mechanism may only be accessible when the door is open. Look under stickers or plugs on the front of the door, and if the screws are there, carefully remove the door and unwind the jammed tape. Your cassette will play again after you clean the rollers and heads with a suitable cleaning kit from the supplier, but there will be image damage when the crumpled part of the tape gets played.
Be aware that forcing the door will usually snap the tape
which would then require re-splicing back together, and
it can also damage the heads and roller, but sometimes sacrificing the tape and taking this risk may be the only option.
Possibility 2) The internal 'door release clip' may have bent, broken or snapped a spring. Try toggling the 'open' button (if it is a mechanical buttonl) whilst gently prising open the cassette door with a thin knife. 3) If all buttons are electronic press buttons, try fresh batteries.
Failing all the above, consider a full service from your service depot or store.

DVR TRV-27 is showing error C:32:11


The problem is a rubber tape tension roller. Simply eject the tape, look inside where the tape goes. You will see a black rubber cylinder that may have a white plastic tube protruding. If you have long tweezer or a hemostat remove the plastic tube which hold the rubber tensioner in place, then remove the rubber tension cylinder. Clean the shaft of the black rubber tensioner with alcohol on a q-tip. Replace rubber tension cylinder and plastic tube.

Also, the tapes can cause the problem. This process is possible by one person, but you may need another person or have three hands. The C:31:23 is tape tension error. The tape has become stuck. Simply eject the tape. Holding the tape upside down, pull back on the tape cover release slide on the left side of the tape, now take the hemostat and push the tape release tab, located opposite of the tape cover, push this tab down and back toward the back edge of the tape. Now while holding both those release levers, take a pencil and wind the tape past the bad spot or until the tape winds freely.
I did both of these and was able to use the camera again and view all my tapes!
Good luck and QUIT SPANKING YOUR CAMERAS!!!!

clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.

Dear Lauren,
You didnt write camera model and make. any how, you need Head Cleaning Cassette for your camera to clean its video heads. Video heads are dirty/ clogged so camera doesnt show picture in playback. Please dont touch video heads physicaly because it may broken easily. always use video head cleaning cassette.
