I opened the tape compartment and used some swabs with isopropyl alcohol to manually clean the heads (round silver part that spins in contact with the tape), plus a can of compressed air. Took several goes but got the head cleaned so I could digitize my old 8mm tapes. Good luck.

Instead of getting san expensive repair, why not get a new hard disk or SDCard based video camera and, if the camera is not up to playing tapes properly, have the relevant bits of your existing tapes transferred to electronic format.
