Problem with the tape transport mechanism; could be the rollers are not contacting the tape itself or it could be the springs in the transport. Sounds like an older model. Could clean the rollers with alcohol and swap and if you can open it a like observe what happens with the rollers when you place in playback. These are rather delicately adjusted machines. I would again 1) try cleaning as best you can and very light oil in moving joints/gears aferward. 2) check adjustment of springs when moving from stop to playback. Once you have that whipped the record mecanism may start working as well.

Hello and welcome to Fixya.

Use a multimeter to measure the voltage from the connector that comes out from the adapter and make sure it matches or is very near the reported voltage in the bottom label of the adapter.

to test the ac adapter that its working and in good condition:

First If the adapter gives out DC 12-24Volt, then you could get a 24volt car lamp and wire it up to the connector coming out from the ac adapter. IF the light is steady then the power supply is good. If the adapter gives out more than 24volt I would not recommend testing it with a car lamp.


If the Light is not steady, flickers or dims out, then the power supply is bad and would need repairs or replacement, replacement being the easier option for you.

Type your model into Google, add "AC adapter", then click "More>>" and choose Froogle for shopping choices. Accessoriegenie.com is one good source.

I don't know anything about the vhs camera - other than they produce superior quality, when they work ok. It would be reasonable to assume the tape transport mechanism would be the same as in a vhs video recorder. I remember an engineer telling me there is a post or protrusion containing a light source and sensor that sometimes fails. The purpose of this is to detect a cassette has been properly loaded into the machine and if it isn't working the machine won't work or only partly work. I think the camera is worth saving but I strongly suggest such specialist equipment should be entrusted to a suitably experienced professional specialist.

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue. Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out. Sorry.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

I understand you have a problem. What is not clear from your description, however, is the actual nature of the problem. Please can you state it more clearly. Thank you.

You can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

This was manufactured in 1999 - this makes it at least 17 years old. If I were you, I would wish it a happy retirement, and replace it with a more up-to-date camcorder with better optics, a digital image capture system, and which is far lighter in weight and more portable.
