Help: Mini DV Camcorder choppy playback?
Camera is at least 10 years old.
Having playback issues where the playback is spotty and choppy.
There is a constant clicking sound when I'm playing a tape.
Sounds sorta like a tic-tock on a clock if you will.
I've run a head cleaner cassette and that did nothing.
Is there a DIY home fix I can try?
Do I spend the money to get the camera fixed?
I wouldn't even know where to go.
I did a quick search and geeksquad came up.
There are no shops in my area that I found.
Or do I just buy a used one on eBay?
It would probably be cheaper anyway I'm thinking.
I'm not recording with this camera anymore.
I'd just need a camera to transfer my tapes to my computer.
