Question about Canon Elura 90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The transport mechanism won't take a tape when closing transport with tape in it, instead it rejects the tape. The transport closes fine without a tape. The camera is actually a MVX350i which is actually a PAL version of the Elura 90.
SOURCE: Tape Ejection Problem
I have both the willful zoom and the unwilling cassette problems. In the past I have briefly fixed the zoom by opening the door and gently probing the cable to the zoom button. This only worked for a couple of weeks then reverted to same crazed performance. Then last month the "remove the cassette" madness started (bear in mind, I have only recorded perhaps 15 cassettes on this damn thing). Nothing worked. Until tonight when I simply lightly smacked the unit down flat on the manual resting on my desktop. Did this a few times and BOTH the zoom and cassette door started responding properly. I'll see how long this lasts, but it beats buying a new one or dealing with Canon. Never again.

I have a ZR100 that did the same nearly the same thing - but it was only beeping twice. I followed the advice another thread suggested - I banged it twice on the opposite side from the door but it didn't fix it. Then I banged it twice on the side with the tape door.... and now all is well!
I couldn't believe that "fixed" it. Like banging the ol' tube color TV on the side to fix the picture. Maybe it is short lived, but if it holds for the rest of this year until the camcorder Christmas sales begin, I'll be happy!

SOURCE: Tape problem, Elura 100
I called the factory and they said to send it in for evaluation. While packing it up, I dropped it and lo and behold it started working. Even though it started working, I decided to send it in to the factory and they found something "loose" inside and repaired it at no charge.

It could be possible that the tape is in the wrong way or that the tape is the wrong size those are both reasons that it may not be closing

When ejecting the tape you must hold the eject switch down for a full second. There are two stages to the eject process just as there are with the insertion of a videocassette. Hold the button in position long enough to hear the motor mechanism start.
