not sure on this one but it might be the heads in your vid cam may need cleaning. or the tapes are not running straight on the heads or the rollers in side. if the vid cam has been in a cold place it can cause this fault as the heads may have a bit of damp. try putting a tape in and run it fast forword in play mode and see if starts to clear the playhead.if it does keep doing it until you see a clear picture. this could also be a head misalignment fault if it is you will have to take it to some one to have a look at. if any of the above does not work then you will have to take to some one to look at it. .

Sounds as if the battery needs replacing - have you tried with a spare battery ?

The heads need cleaning. DO NOT USE A HEAD CLEANING TAPE. Thats like holding sand paper to the drum. Use alcohol and a swab.

that means the head is sticky or the takeup rollers are icky take it apart . clean all the parts the tape touches with something thats strong but little water . as for the head very carefull clean it when you get to the actual holes where heads are only use a proper qtip wetted . look it up or youll break them. on the rubber rollers scrub them . then load the tape an watch it run. its easy to fix this but you need a nice clean place an some small phillips , take pics of parts/screws if needed

Remove battery Press and HOLD Eject as you place battery back on (so its the first command it recognizes with power) and try to eject. If it does not come out, camera will need service to remove tape or fix gears
