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.

Camcorder VHS tape is tangled

Sometimes you can salvage a VHS tape by opening the cassette and manually winding or rewinding the tape to put the damaged section to one side and under tension to "iron out" the wrinkles. Your Fuji Hi8 tape may be quite thin so this repair may not work.

Hi, Ihave a C:21:00 symbol in my screen...and another one look like a water drop....I can't put my cassette inside the machine...what can I do ???? Thank's Isabelle

The water drop is a condensation warning- the camera has sensed damp in the works. Damp will cause the tape to stick and get tangled in the transport mechanism, so you need to dry the camera (and tapes) out thoroughly before proceeding. Leave them in a warmish dry place for a day or so- longer if needed.

It does not eject the tape,it gives out error c3211

Reel of the cassette must be stuck inside. open the top cover and have a look inside. release the reel if it is tangled up inside. Reset the switch at the bottom of the frot pannel and try to eject the cassette. It will slove your problem. If it is not then you must consult the nearby sony service centre.

Tape gets tangled in rca recorder

Your take up spool or the pinch roller on the deck mechanism is probably not turning & causing the tape to spill into the deck. The cause of this could either be the motor is not turning the pinch roller if a belt has snapped or the clutch mechanism is not engaging the take up spool. If you remove the top cover & take a look at the tape when it is in play or rewind mode you will see if it spills on the right hand side, look to see in the right spool in the cassette tape is turning. The remedy would be to remove the deck mechanism & check the gears or belts.

The tapes In my Panasonic PV-GS14 are stuck and won't run

you cannot move the spindles/cogs in a mini dv tape without pressing down a small lever on the rear of the cassette.
the lever is in the lower right, move the lever, then move the ribbon protector to the open position, then spin the cogs, the tape should be free.
if not, then you have a jamm inside the cassette, you can open these casettes by removing 4 small screws. ( this is a very fiddly job & you may ruin the casette, if you dont know how )

I have an 8mm high digital camcorder tape which got tangled in the camcorder. when i wound the tape back in the case and returned it to the camcorder it would only play a high pitched sound with no...

I've had to fix this problem several times. You need to open the 8mm cassette, and manually rewind to where the tape got twisted around. Then untwist it, and manually wind the tape back on the reels. and then put the cassette back together. If the tape isn't torn you should be fine. There might be creases in the tape- but they will only give you a slight picture glitch or drop out. You need to run a head cleaning tape through your camcorder before you try taping again. It might hose up the next tape if you don't.

Mini DV damaged

You have to make sure that when the tape was put back in the cassette, that it maintained it's side to head integrity, in other words, that it did not flip so at a certain point, the back of the tape is running against the drum and head in the machine. If that is the case, then you should insert the tape and rewind it and fast forward the tape 2 or three times and then let the tape rest for a day fully rewound or fully fast forwarded. This should iron out the small wrinkles, but unfortunately, the big creases in the tape will cause a loss of information so the picture will fail. You should transfer the tape immediately to your computer and burn a DVD as your tape has a very short life span now,
