Sony TCD D100 - Chewing Tapes?

My TCD D100 after not being used for a few years has started chewing tapes, Sony has quoted me $500 to fix it. I can get a 2nd hand one for half that. If anyone has any suggestions re: fixing it cheaper, please let me know or email me at spin_orbit@hotmail.com

I'm hoping it's like a vcr and there might be a simple fix, i.e. rotation at wrong speed due to buildup from lack of use?

did you record them on the same unit?
It may be an alignment problem.
If it's the same unit, try cleaning the heads.
There are dat cleaning tapes too, but they beat on the heads.

You need to send it to a repair center because the problem might be a bad idle on the vcr deck player ,and you can not be able to fix it.Good luck.

Vidio tapes are chewing up


This is the number one failure mode for a tape machine.
One drive is used to pull the tape out and run it across the heads very accurately, and another drive is used to pull the tape back into the cassette. This one uses a clutch to allow it to slip so that the takeup reel in the cassette can vary in speed depending on how much tape is on it. After a few years, it slips too much and can't pull the tape in fast enough. (older units use rubber idler wheels to do the same thing)
Either tighten up the clutch, or replace the rubber wheel.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Picture is snowy and isn't clear


If you are using the RF out to connect to the VCR to your TV, perhaps the connecting Cable is faulty? And if you are connecting the VCR using the Audio Out / Video Out Cables, try replacing only the Video Out cable. In 95% of the cases, it is only the connecting cables which go faulty. If the above solution does not solve the problem, then we consider options. How old is the machine? if it is more than 5-6 years old, you need to get a service done. For chewing of tapes, 99% of the time it is a bad Pinch Roller(it is big (approx. 1 inch high. on the right side of the mechanism assy.)replace, and your chewing problem will go away.

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
