It's probably easier to take into a shop and see if the belt can be fixed or if the motor is working properly in the player.

Mechanism stocked due to dirt and dust need to clean and a little push to the tape head maybe it's jamming:

  • The capstan shaft: This is the motorized shaft that pulls the video tape through the tape path.
  • Pinch roller: This is the wheel that presses against the capstan shaft, so the capstan shaft can pull the video tape through the tape path.
  • A/C head: A mechanical part that contains the record and playback audio head, the audio erase head.
  • Tension rollers: These rollers attenuate vibration or flutter from the video tape as it is moving across the record/playback head.
  • Erase head: As the name implies, this head erases all recorded information off the video tape before it reaches the recording head.
  • Roller guides: These guides pull the video tape onto the tape path and align the video tape to the video drum (the part that holds the video heads).
  • Video heads: The most important, expensive, and dirt-sensitive piece, the video heads (video drum) pick up the image part of the signal off the video tape, or record the video image onto the tape.

Jittery video and sound, and now no playback


You may have damaged the heads if your cleaner tape was old and dryed out and had grit on it, buy a new camera head cleaning tape for a start, never rewind it as lots of folk do, if you do that all you do is put the old dirt back on the head.

Won't playback. acts like it's locked up.


This may be corrected by fast-forwarding the tape for a few seconds and then rewinding it back to the point where the issue first started. However, if the issue continues, this could be a sign that the video heads are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use a Sony MiniDV head-cleaning cassette (DVM-12CLD) to clean the video heads.
If the movie continues to stop at the same point even after cleaning the video heads, this could be an indication that there is a problem with the recording on the cassette tape. If this is the case, the data on that portion of the tape cannot be recovered.
NOTES:
  • It is recommended that a high-quality Sony MiniDV tape be used for recording.

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

Try to use video head cleaning cassette one more time and check. Problem still exist then....
There is a very special cassette used to clean much dirty video heads calls Lapping Tape.
This is provided only to Sony Service Centers.
You need to contact nearest Sony Service Center.

Camcorder wont playback recording


Dear Lauren,
You didnt write camera model and make. any how, you need Head Cleaning Cassette for your camera to clean its video heads. Video heads are dirty/ clogged so camera doesnt show picture in playback. Please dont touch video heads physicaly because it may broken easily. always use video head cleaning cassette.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
