Question about Canon ES75 Camcorder
When I place a tape in the camera the tape won't go down. But when I take the out close the cover it works like it should and tape caddy goes down. I have tried several tapes with the same result.
Sony Camcorder CCD-FX310 is an old model of 1993
Symptom shows that drum motor (video head motor) is either not rotating or rotating on slower speed. This error prevents camcorder to load tape and complete tape threading around video head.
Possible cause (and I'm sure this is the only cause) is leaky electrolytic capacitors in drum servo section and power supply area.
Click HERE to see electrolytic capacitor. These capacitors are surface mounted very hard to replace even by qualified camcorder tech because these are mounted so close to each other on main board and not possible to unsold / remove securely.
In my opinion, CCD-FX310 does not worth to repair. If you want to try it yourself, download service (repair) manual from Manual Zone for small fee and replace all electrolytic capacitors mounted on main board and power supply board.
Let me know if you need further info / help.
