    You could try a tape head cleaner and put it in for about 10 to 12 seconds and see how you get on. That's quite an old model of camcorder now but you may still be able to get supplies for it. As far as repairs are concerned I can't think of anyone offhand but try a search on Google to see how you get on. Any footage you shoot with it will have to be digitised compared to having an actual digital camcorder.
