Try using a DV tape cleaner to clean the tape heads first and see if that makes a difference.

Eject lto5


in the manual should be something like this:

Manually Removing a Tape Cartridge
If problem-determination procedures identify the tape drive as the source of the problem and you are unable to eject the tape cartridge using the eject button, reset the drive to recover the cartridge:
Press and hold the eject button for 10 seconds, then release.
The status light turns amber and the drive starts through its hardware test process.
When the hardware test completes, the status light turns green.
If a cartridge is in the drive the status light flashes green until the cartridge is rewound.
The status light turns solid green when the rewind is complete and the tape drive is ready.

Although it is from an older LTO version, it must work on the newer versions too.

I also did remove tapes, if nothing worked, but it is to much to tell and show here.
NOTE: Allow at least 10 minutes for the rewind process to complete.

Stuck tape -- Zenith model VR4176


Remove the top cover to see the tape and get at it. Remove it there using plastic tools, not metal.

I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TR61. It has worked fine until today. It will not accept a tape. If I close the door without a tape it closes and completely shuts like it is supposed to. But if I put in a tape...


Many times it's a belt slipping. Since the tape isn't pulled into position, it's rewound and the tape ejected. A damaged or mal-adjusted switch could cause this too. The most you can do is blow it out with compressed air to see if that helps. I doubt there are many thing the end user could do.

Sony DCR-PC100 does not eject (well not really!)


Don't think this is a complete solution, but it might help. Try checking out the buttons on the camera. I've got one of those same cameras but my problem is the ribbon cable in the cassette carrier broke and I'm on the hunt for a new one, and a service manual. By the way, how about emailing a copy of the service manual to me at ljmagnuson@aol.com. Thanks. I might be able to help further with a copy of that.

Tape end camcorder


Have you tried different VHS tapes? If your VHS tape is too far rewound or at the very end your camcorder will display this problem. In a different VHS machine make sur the tape is rewound and then play the tape about a minute and then try it in the VCR.
If this doesn't work then there is a problem with the tape end sensors in your VCR.

Canon XM2 Chewing tapes


This seams to be the problem, all the time, plus the sound goes off on most of theses camcorders, and the only way they will work is with an boom, mic.

Could I use an tape clearer when it says eject?

Cassette


Most VCR's will auto-rewind the tape when it gets to the end of a tape. Most will leave the tape in the unit assuming you may wish to view it again once rewound. Does the tape eject properly when you press the eject button? What does the manula say about the eject function?

Deck will not accept DV tape


most likely problem is a defective cassette housing. I've replaced about a dozen of these in AG-DV2500s.
