Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Tried to change tape but keeps coming up with "remove and reinsert tape"
and the tape keeps catching, have tried different tapes to no avail, even tried the tape that came out. Camcorder not yet a year old.
Clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.
