Check the top of the tape. There is a slider which open a slot or closes it. It should be closed.

Sony hi8 tape has snapped and I want to repair it as it has sentimental value?

If the tape snaps or cut itself, try to open the cartridge by removing the 4 screws on its sides and carefully attached something like a Scotch tape on each end to mend the video tape. Once done, it will play smoothly when you try to play it back on your sony Hi8 camcorder. I'm sure this helps because I am doing it when a client has torn tapes that needs to be transferred to dvd's. ^_^

I have a GE CG818A Camcorder, when I play it it only plays black and white. Was wondering if there is a used Sony or any camcorder that would play my Video8 P6-120MP tape, in color.

I have the exact same camera and same exact same problem. Any analog Video8 or Hi-8 camcorder or VCR will play these tapes.

By using the same cassettes as Hi8, many (NOT ALL) Digital8 (produced by Sony exclusively) camcorders are able to play analog Video8/Hi8 recordings, preserving compatibility with already recorded analog tapes.

you can connect Digital8 camcorders to your computer to download your movies for editing or Internet use.

As of 2008, Digital8 camcorders have been removed from the equipment offered by Sony.

My sony hi8 Handycam TRV 138 gives me a message reinsert tape What is wrong? do it need repair

The cassette is not being detected when the tray is landing. If the head is not spinning but you are getting the cassette ejected then it is a malfunction of the loading mechanism. Even if the tape end detection optocouplers are defective the fault could be so.If you can check this out then try and test the voltage before and after the cassette loads. there should be a change if not replace. check on the loading mechanism too. Hope this helps. Good day

If you are asking if there is an adapter to let you watch these movies on your VCR like a VHS-C, as far as I know, there is no such adapter.
