My canon xl1s eats tapes in vcr mode while in rewind. this has happened with two different tapes, sony dvc tapes.


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I need to find a Digital Audio Tape (DAT) deck to play Maxell R-124DA and TDK DA-R180 tapes. DAT tape decks are no longer manufactured. The tapes contain voice and limited music and number between 100 and...


Dat equipment is readily available on Ebay and at sometimes unbelievable prices. Wouldn't you think manufacturers would stick to a format and stop inventing new ones just to sell more units and making perfectly good equipment useless. Pawn shops is a good place to find unused hifi gear also.

I just did a quickie search of The US Eby site and there are 1471 entries for DAT storage and player units. Some as low as $10 and dat tapes as low as a cent. Take a look, if Ebay scares you I can assure you there are more ripoffs happening in retail stores than on Ebay. I've been merrily saving a fortune on all types of equipment ever since it arrived in Australia. Buy the gear for next to nothing and do the work yourself, at least you'll know it's been done properly. There's even units which mount straight into your computer. DAT machine, editor and CD machine all in one. I might do like wise. I have a large collection of DAT tapes I picked up at an auction. HMMMMmmmmm.

Technics RS-TR373 is chewing tapes


A lot of tape chewing problems are caused by the capstan roller being worn. Check for wear or oxide on that first.

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.
