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

This can be an expensive repair with many moving parts using rubber bands that have a finite life. You might find a youtube video from either a diyer or repait tech willing to provide free insights into discontinued products.

Hi @bigglesaircraft

Given the cost, you may wish to consider buying the service manual as it might speed things up in finding out what the problem is.

The user manual only specifies that the recorder uses 8mm video format and nothing more regarding the cassette type etc. (see About Cassette Format paragraph under the watermark in the middle of the page)

Thank you for your answer and suggestion and for taking the time to answer. I have several Tapes which I need to put onto DVDs before the tapes become useless and the cameras are the only equipment that I have to use if i can get them to work.
