Clean the rollers of the tape transport mechanism with spirit, failing which you can use whisky as well. just wet and squeeze the swab. dont have it dripping whisky all over and get it intoxicated.

Your problem is a plastic belt that drives take up and supply reel. Most likely, you will not be able to relace it by yourself.

Tape eating


unit need to be cleaned or have parts replaced if they got bad enough.
only, only, only use the more expensive JVC tapes. They keep their tension far better than cheaper brands. Also, they won't rub off their oxide coatings on the heads as easily, avoiding the 'clogging' of the heads (which thereby requires constant cleaning-further damaging the heads).

There is a small nylon gear assembly on the bottom of the chassis that needs to be replaced and is not an easy repair for the skilled tech as the entire camcorder has to be disassembled. Good Luck
