-make sure that your tape is clean and dry -clean the tape head inside the tape deck if you have a video head tape cleaner *tape head: the one that reads the tape inside the camcorder.its the metal thing at the bottom inside the tape deck. -or you can use a soft and dry Q-tip to clean it(dont use any liquid cleaners) *or if confused where the tape head is....just clean all metal parts inside the tape deck and make sure you do it lightly with a soft dry Q-tip.
put your camcorder to your ear closely & turn
it on - if you don ' t hear a whirring sound ?
( or instead sounds like a slinky toy ) your
tape is wrapped around the heads and the
protect circuits are trying to save the tape ;
moisture can cause this problem if the camera
was not in dry or air conditioned environment
( or was left in a car trunk , etc . )
removing a stuck tape is fairly easy but should
only be attempted in a clean , dry environment
( if your heads are accidentally damaged , the
repairs will be fairly expensive ) ;
You have a clogged video head. Use a dry type head cleaner and follow the instructions.
Better use the best tapes you can afford, since tape quality can keep you from having this problem, and tape cleaners can gradually damage your camera.
