i have a panasonic mini DV cam corder. it plays most of my tapes, but some appear to be jammed. they wont turn in the camera, or manually. tthe tapes are not jammed in the camera.

however, if I depress the recessed slide in the base of the tape, i can turn the tape manually.

any ideas please?

If the tape won't turn in or out of the camera, it is probably lost. It might be possible to repair them. This place:

Claims to have expertise with that camera. Perhaps they might know someone who can repair the tape or at least extract the videos off of it.
