Question about Video Cameras
Fast Forward & rewind not working properly. Play ok.
The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is
slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by
putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind
buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used
rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace
the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

Try cleaning the pinch roller. A cotton bud dipped in methylated spirits should work, you may need several. Play a tape through to clean off the methanol residue. Avoid touching any semionductors !
If this doesn't work, you've just a tired motor.
