Those cartridges can be disassembled (carefully) then re-attach the tape to it's original location with small piece of clear packing tape or even Scotch tape trimmed to same width as the mag tape.

It ejects the tape immediately...and then it powers off.


older VCR--I have one like it. You need to remove top cover and bottom shield, look for one of the belts to be either broken or off.

There are places on the net where you can buy a belt kit, includes all belts and most are easy to replace--they get old and sloppy with age.

If this has helped you rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Solve Your "Imation Odyssey HDD Cartridge


Do you have more than one of the cartridge drives?

If you do, a simple test is try another drive, if they both failed to respond in a similar fashion the bay has issues and may need to be replaced. If the other drive works properly in the bay that cartridge or drive inside is likely the problem and will need to be sent for data recovery if you need the files back or just scrapped for a new unit if there's nothing crucial on it.

If you require data recovery, comment back with your Country, State and City and I will be happy to recommend a nearby facility that can help you out.

MSI Wind Netbook sd card reader failure


For both an MSI Wind running Windows and Mac OSX 10.5.(4,5,6) do the following. Shut down the MSI Wind. Remove the power cord, any USB peripherals, and any SD cards in the slot. Remove the Battery Hold down the power key (with the battery removed for 2-5 seconds)  Release the Power Key Insert the Battery Insert the the Power Supply plug ((do not insert any USB or SD card yet)) Power on the Wind Now, insert the SD card-it should now show up on the desktop (in OSX). That should do it. Now insert any USB dongles/cables etc...
You have reset the PMU and bus start up. Any more Wind Questions?

Winding technique:
To wind a new ribbon, take the cartridge housing apart and remove the old ribbon and two cardboard cores. The new ribbon is fitted with the larger roll (the ink ribbon supply spool) at the rear side of the cartridge (as the housing is viewed when it is normally installed into the machine). The ribbon winds over the topside of the rear spool (the supply side) and feeds into the underside of the front spool (the take-up side). Make sure the ribbon is wound neatly, evenly and is tight. If the ink film has become detached or is too loose on the front spool it will not wind on and cause a machine error. If required, use a small amount of sticky tape to secure the ink film to the front cardboard spool and then neatly wind it on to the take-up spool a minimum of five turns, making sure the film does not overhang at the edges. Now reassemble the housing and refit into the machine.
If it’s still not fixed:
If problems persist after fitting a new ribbon, try replacing the entire ink ribbon unit (cartridge housing + a new ink ribbon) using a new, genuine Brother unit before requesting a service; this will be less expensive as the actual housing may have been damaged and is causing the problem and this unit is readily available as a consumable item through sales outlets. If the machine still has problems, book your machine in to be repaired with an authorised Brother Service Centre.
