Put your camcorder to your ear closely & turn it on - if you don ' t hear a whirring sound ? ( or instead sounds like a slinky toy ) your tape is wrapped around the heads and the protect circuits are trying to save the tape ; - - moisture can cause this problem if the camera was not in dry or air conditioned environment ( or was left in a car trunk , etc . ) removing a stuck tape is fairly easy but should only be attempted in a clean , dry environment ( if your heads are accidentally damaged , the repairs will be fairly expensive ) ;
