I have a Sony CCD-TR71 Video8 Handycam that was just given to me. It had a tape in it and was accessing it just fine. I took the tape out and put in another one with video on it. It was accessing the new one perfectly.
However, I put in the original tape and now it won’t accept it. I close the door, it starts to descend into unit, then is ejects the tape. I put another tape in, and it works fine.
Tape has gone slack, or even very tight and hasn’t released. Poke the little releases and wind it back and forth a bit.
