My JVC digital camera chewed our latest (nearly full) tape yesterday when playing back through the TV. Probabaly about 3 inches of chewed tape…
I have seen a couple of places on the internet who repair DV tapes -
One costs £25 (repair done, plus copied to DVD - just in case it happens again)
Other = £20 - repair only.
Is this the going rate?
My main worry is why this happened - I dont want to ruin any more valuable tapes - so far not copied to DVD or VHS!!!
Is this common, or is it likely to be a new fault with the camera?
I am going to play around a bit at the weekend with a blank tape - play, fast forward, rewind, pause etc to see if it happens again....
