Hi,


I've been using a Sony PC8E DV cam for the last 7 years, and it's been great.


Today, I went to eject a DV tape, and reaches the half way eject point, makes lots of whirring noise, and then pulls it back in again.


Nothing I do, will get the tape to eject.


Does anyone have any tips on getting the tape out? To make a repair would cost around 200 euros I think. So buying a new cam would be a better option. However I would like to rescue the tape that's currently in there.


Perhaps some pro here has a service manual for that model?




thnx

I managed to solve the issue by disassembling part of the mechanisim that holds the tape. afterwards, it works properly again.


So, if you have the same issue, don't be afraid to get the screwdriver out
