I have a Sony CCD-TVR37 camcorder and Im on playback transfering video to my computer, sometimes I can watch the whole tape with no problem but in the majority of instance the tape stops and eject. I try cleaning the heads but still the same

Be sure to keep transferring out the content and GOOGLE the eject problem.

I do not suggest trying much on these as cleaning and repair have often meant the end of the unit. Transfer out your content then sell it as-is on Ebay.
