Tangled mini DV tape

I am having trouble with a mini DV cassette that I just shot and was rewinding when the tape got tangled. I tried to fix myself but the tape was rewound incorrectly and I could not pull back the tape after I rewound it so I could straighten it out correctly. I now have a tape that needs to be rewound and I do not know how to begin or if there is someone out there that does this or can guide me.

There are many studios who might help you with service to convert the worn out tape after rectification to be converted - digitized/compressed.
Since this is a complex software you must try for the digital studio around your area.

My tape (tdk mini dv 60) was damaged by my sony camcorder. i need help fixing it. it's twisted inside the cassette. is there a way to untwist and splice the damaged part out?

Well if it's not personnal? I would send it to a camera store and have them repair it. If it is personnal? I would set time aside and dismantle it remembering how it goes back together.

How can I manually rewind a mini DV tape?


To manually rewind a tape you will need a flat head screwdriver.

Find a screwdriver that fits the "spoke" in the reels of the tape.

Turn the screwdriver toward the center of the tape. (i.e. Left side - clockwise, Right side - counter clockwise)

If this solution does not resolve your issue or if you have more questions please comment below in this thread and I will be more than happy to further assist you!

Happy New Year!

Feedback is appreciated!

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera

Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.

I have a mini DV, 60 min, TDK and it gets rejected from my camcor

Your efforts can damage tiny parts within. Best solution is to find a technician to open the door or put it apart and fix it. Good luck.

Torn DV mini tape what do I do now?

I would go to a professional camera store like a Ritz and see if you can find splicing tape, yes they sell such a thing but it may be a bit hard to find, if you find it youll have to pick a point on either side of the damaged tape and cut it as cleanly as possible and apply the splicing tape, when played thecut out part will of course be missing and the tape may jump over that point a little but it should work.

How do I open a Maxell mini DV tape case? I have one cassette that is broken - tape is fine - I need to transfer the tape reels to a new cassette. Same brand of cassette.

Hello FixYa, I was able to find a post in the internet to help. While you service is convenient, the cost and my immediate need really dictated my continued search. Thank-you anyways for your time.

Tape jammed??

Maybe your blaming the wrong people? Maybe your camcorder has a problem? with the power off, try pushing the eject button and the power button down together for a few seconds, but push down the eject button before the power. If that does not work, you will need to have the camcorder service and ask the servicer to please be kind to the tape as it is important. Good Luck
