There are 2 causes why your camcorder is eating up the tapes; either the tape head is dirty or there is a mechanical fault inside your unit (something might be misaligned that causes the film to be sucked in).

try to clean the tape head of your unit by using a tape head cleaner, it is like the tapes that you use with the unit but instead of a film there is a cloth like material inside that is used to clean the tape heads to avoid the film sticking to it

if the issue still persists then you should contact your manufacturer and set up a repair for the unit

The camcorder eats tapes in record or playback modes


O heck my friend, the reason cameras eat tapes is simply because the capstan and heads need cleaning, odd how everyone forgets cleaning these last 10 years.

Won't work with tape installed


I had this same problem. At my wedding, and didn't get to record it because of it. When I got home I put a new tape in and worked fine. It was just a bad tape.

Chewing up mini-dv tapes


These type of problems usually result from damage to the tape transport mechanism, Unfortunately they are impossible to fully diagnose without a physical examination of the mechanism.
There is not a magic tweak for this i'm afraid.
Wish i could be more help
