Question about Canon ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When ever i open the load area, the camera makes two beep sounds, but it does open, when i load a tape in and compress the tape down, not closing the handle part, but the tape bay it self, it will open back up and make the same two beep sounds, also when i have the display open and the camera on, it says remove the cassette. i cant figure out what it could be, iv tried a whole pack of tapes, and i only use one brand of tape.. im very confused, do i have to have a memory battery in, because i do not have one right now.. thanks
I bought this camara from someone with the same problem for 5 bucks at a yard sale. an easy fix. 1. blow the dust out 2. charge the battery. 3. put the tape in and when it gos down into the case close the door and turn it on, run tape on ff then rr then turn camara to record. if it says to eject tape at any time, eject it and do it again. it worked for me.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like a little sand and / or moisture made it's way into the camera. A call to the Sony Company Tech Support will let you know if one of the canned compressed air cleaners for computers would be advisable.
Another thought is to check if there is something in or near the hinge of the tape hatch apparatus. Sometimes I take one of those electronics foam "Q-Tips" and wipe out the area in case a piece of dust or fuzz or something is causing a malfunction.
