Trying to figure out how to fix old 8mm Camcorder

Hi there

I have this 8mm camcorder, a Sanyo VM RZ1P, which I recently acquired from a family member. He has said the tapes that were with it had recorded material on it, and whilst the camera turns on fine and seemingly records, I can't seem to play anything back on the tapes at all, it just gives me white streaky static. Just looking for any potential diagnosis here so I can figure out what to do as I have a couple projects in mind I would like to use this camera for.
