This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I'm looking at a sony dcr-vx2000dv digital camcorder that comes with a fish eye. the seller says the tape deck skips and will need to be replaced. He wants $750 for the whole thing. Is this worth it?


Yes it is. The VX 2000 is a nice camera with a value well above the $750 + the cost of the repair.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

Yes I think this is the camera that records on the mini tapes yes? I have heard of this problem, and it is mostly dust, fluff round the capstan drives, if you clean the camera heads with a tape cleaner cass it should be okay.

Either the camera or the vcr is dirty. Try running a cleaning cassette through both, but bare in mind that tapes which were recorded while the camera was dirty will ALWAYS look like that. Forever.

I think you face this digitizing problem in old recorded cassettes.
If yes, your camera needs little adjustments of tape guides. There will be one guide lose. In technical, we call it Tape path adjustment.
