TAPE BEING REJECTED; Amended & updated Question
I have edited this to perhaps make it a little more obvious as to what is happening, in an attempt to get some more help. The camera switches on and appears to function correctly prior to a tape being inserted.
The cassette compartment opens correctly on pressing the eject button, if the cassette compartment is closed without a tape being inserted all the pre-tensioning actions work correctly and appear to return to their correct positions when opening the cassette compartment, but when a tape is inserted non of these tape pre-tensioning operations function. There is a very faint noise of possible a motor trying to do something for about 5 seconds then the cassette compartment opens automatically. with the cassette compartment cover removed I canot see anything trying to move or operate when the tape is correctly inserted.
Besides the camera possibly being faulty I wonder if the tape cassette is the wrong one. the tapes I am trying are Kodak Video Cassette P5-90MP8 and SONY MP 8mm Video Cassette PAL 8
