I have a precious tape of my daughter stuck inside an old model Sony CCD-TR55 (Japanese domestic model) Video 8 handycam. It has been a number of years since I last used the unit to watch the tape and now I am not able to remove the tape. I do not want to force open the unit for fear of damaging the tape. When I plug the unit on, the emergency lamp starts blinking but there is no way I can get the tape transport mechanism to react. Can anyone please help? My daughter is getting married next year and the tape was taken when she was ten years old. It is priceless.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
