Question about RCA Video Cameras
RCA PRO 870: While copying tapes to my computer, a tape jam occurred. I was able to get the now badly mangled tape out using the eject button. The problem is when I close the tape door, the top part will not come down (with or without tapes inserted). The eject button will still, open the side door, but nothing happens with the top section.
How much did you pay for the Camera? Want to send it to a Repair shop, or try to fix it yourself? I have links to repair manuals and one to a repair shop in Florida. Post a reply if you want those links.

SOURCE: Tape deck won't eject tape
The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.
