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.
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. Thanks.
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.
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
