    Not even going to try to explain this, attached are videos of some major malfunction. Anyone ever seen this? This camera was almost new when I got it a few months ago.

  3. VX2100 Chewing Up Tapes

    I think it's worth the maintenance, too. Love the camera and got a good deal on it so ~$200 is reasonable. May not be this week or next but I will definitely reach out for that repair form. Thanks again for the help!
  4. VX2100 Chewing Up Tapes

    Fortunately, no one else's tapes were damaged as badly as this one, so the issue is intermittent, but I did damage two or three of my own trying to diagnose the issue. Any recommendations on DIY maintenance? General quote? Safe to say I won't be capturing with the 2100 anytime soon... but what about using it to record? Big no or trial and error? Thanks for the reply, glad to be here!
  5. I've recently been using a VX2100 to capture footage from the VX1000 (TRV19 having other issues). Capturing had been normal until glitches became more frequent. I've been using a fairly new VX1000 so I thought it could have been glitches during recording, but other people began having issues capturing footage with my equipment, and likewise footage off my camera was normal most of the time. Tonight I put a tape in, glitched, put another tape in and captured normally, then tried the first tape and encountered the same glitches at the same timecode. I jogged around before and after the mark and had no issues. Paused the tape on the glitch and inspected the magnetic strip to find scratches and crinkles. It appears as though the VX2100 is damaging tapes during playback. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
