Try to run cleaning tape, it may solve your problem.

From your question, it sounds like you are trying to view a video which has already been recorded on. If that is correct, the video cassette may need to be rewound to the beginning of the tape,

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

WHERE CAN I BUY THE CASSETE


Video Only, and Best Buy will most likely have 8mm tapes. Walgreens and Radio Shack should also carry them. If the only tapes you can find are labeled Hi8 or DV8, you can still record on them with an 8mm camcorder.

OUr Samsung SCL 810 Hi-8 Camcorder is flashing Lemg-Eject in yellow, but won't eject a tape. We know it is old, but we're trying to transfer all the tapes to other media so we won't lose them and now the...


I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU. I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine. Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Good luck

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Hi,
If you're interested in having your video8 recordings digitized, you can check out our website at www.digisize.ca.  We offer a convenient digitizing service at an excellent price.
For your tapes, if you've tried it on several cameras, it may be that your tapes have been damaged or deteriorated with old age.  You can take them to a professional to have them cleaned and treated, but that is no guarantee that they will work thereafter, I'm afraid.

Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.


I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
