Question about Canon ES8400V Camcorder
Camcorder will not playback audio or video all of a sudden in LCD screen or viewfinder. Had no problem prior to today.
I Had a similar problem with my 8600. Most likely the camera
is also no longer recording. There were two problems I found,
either one could have caused the problem. 1) the 8mm tape was not
actually moving through the record/play head. With modern cameras. there are no indications that the tape is actually moving.
2) the record/play head is dirty. What I did was remove the
side plate that covers the tape cassette to allow me to verify that
the tape was moving properly. After that, I removed the tape, removed the battery, and used isopropyl alcohol and a q tip
to clean the head. I imagine there are cleaning tapes that one
can buy to do this as well. though I doubt they work as well as
a q tip. THere are two screws that hold the cover on.
