Hello and thank you for your question, I look forward to assisting you today. If possible, try connecting the camera to your TV and playback a tape. If you see video then at least we know the camera playback function is okay. Let me know how you come out with that and we can proceed.
How about audio?
Okay, and you can see the tape moving? Does the camera eventually eject the tape and shut off?
Okay, get back to me when you can.
