The best thing to do is take it into a camera store. If it isn't taken out properly, it can cause further damage to the camera.

If the door is slightly open you should be able to manually open the door.

How do I fix the tape holder system on my camcorder? The door won't lock, and the cassette won't get inside the compartment.

is it close without a cassette ? if so the reel sensor in the cassette compartment may be faulty. if the head drum not rotates the cassette drive will not work correctly, if so please loosen the head drum with a plastic rod or some tools like that. do not put your finger in hence sometimes will jam your finger. remember don"t touch the scanning chip of the head.

Please help!!! My ink came out through my printer with the picture... how do i get the ink cassette out? it is jamed..


Kindly open the cover of your printer or the cover at the back of your printer then make sure that the printer is on. Then wait the ink holder will stop moving and automatically stop in the center of the printer (if inkjet printer) then remove the ink cassette or if it is laser or toner then just remove the ink cassette automatically after you open the cover of the printer. Also to have more information kindly referto your printer manual to have more step by step instructions in removing and installing new ink cassette.

Cassette jammed in A deck of sony rx707 hifi

Does the casstte holder still open? If so, you should be able to carefully remove cassette carefully. If not, there should be a small hole on cassettelid where you can stick a bended paperclip through to open it and than remove the cassette.

Paper Feed Not Automatically Switching to Multi-Purpose Tray

Sounds like the paper out sensor for the cassette is either broken or jammed. Pull out the cassette tip the machine on its back and you should see a black arm hanging down. This should be able to swing back and fourth freely. Unless it is missing or broken.

Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.

I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
