I am having problems with my HI8 camcorder. I was on a trip to Michigan from Texas in January and when I got back to Texas I was going to record a Dairy Queen. I pressed the record button and looked at the LCD and it was the end of the tape. I pressed the eject button but nothing happened. I pressed the button a couple more times and all of a sudden it started to rewind. I tried to press the stop button with no success of it stopping. Then the tape finally ejected. I took out the tape and put another on in. When I closed the door it sounds like it is rewinding, then fast forwarding and then pops the tape back out. I take the tape out and close the door and the tape compartment goes down. Anytime I put in a tape it does the same thing. I can't record to any HI8 tapes or even play them. I would send it back to the manufacturer but I lost the reciept and UPC so I can't get it fixed for free. Since I didn't buy an extended warranty from where I bought it from they can't fix it. I was hoping there is something I could do to fix it or if I have to send it in to Canon. If you know, please help.
