Constant Eject Tape iluminated on screen.

Are there any error codes listed? Usually when a camcorder constantly ejects the tape it is because of a fault being present, the most likely one is moisture. Leave unit in a dry environment for a day with the cassette door open then try it. If you are sure the unit does not have moisture in it you probably have a bad moisture sensor. They go bad frequently. It is the small square device usually located on the deck base near the video drum and sometimes on the base of the drum. I do not know if you are capable of replacing this unit. If not you will need to find a reputable repair facility to get an estimate. Keep in mind from the description you gave of the problem it could be about anything. This is just the most common problem for this symptom. Several websites which offer free estimates are: or or Good luck.
