I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.
I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

SOURCE: Hi8 won't eject cassette
There is a broken plastic part inside the cassette and needs to be replaced. Mostly due to cassette tape improper position and camera jam (tape jam).

A much better way to clean cassette heads is to get some cotton buds and a Can of Servisol Video 40. You should be able to get the Servisol from places like Radio Shack or if in the UK somewhere like jessops or Maplin. I have also seen it on Amazon.
Just spray it on the head (only a small amount) then wipe of the dirt with a bud.
