Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My child pulled the tape out of the mini DV. I tried to smooth it out, and reinserted it. It played OK for a while, but then read "eject cassette". Can the tape be salvaged, and so, who repairs tapes?
You have to make sure that when the tape was put back in the cassette, that it maintained it's side to head integrity, in other words, that it did not flip so at a certain point, the back of the tape is running against the drum and head in the machine. If that is the case, then you should insert the tape and rewind it and fast forward the tape 2 or three times and then let the tape rest for a day fully rewound or fully fast forwarded. This should iron out the small wrinkles, but unfortunately, the big creases in the tape will cause a loss of information so the picture will fail. You should transfer the tape immediately to your computer and burn a DVD as your tape has a very short life span now,
