Question about Canon MV800 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I insert the tape, it goes out. I tried with many differents tapes, but all of these go out; so I can't do nothing: I can't record a new tape, I can't see the old tapes, I can't bring the moovies in my computer.. Thank you

I just tried the "Fonzie" fix in my ZR300 and my camera now works - cassette compartment closes all the way now with the tape inserted. It just took one "hit" to fix the prolem. I was surprised. But ericemartin's solution is worth a try.

I took mine apart and there's a little switch on the backside of the camera that controls the opening of the cassette mechanism. It is meant to be tripped by the opening of the side of the cassette case and then triggers the ejection of the tape. The switch is probably just stuck. Taking this apart isn't too difficult - I think about 4 screws.

our MV800 was doing the the same so i "accidentally" dropped it (i got a bit frustrated and it was out of warranty) and now it works fine. please note it dropped about half a meter on carpeted floor while it was off.
Hope this helps

Canon ES series camcorder was designed with 1000 hour capacitors on the processor boards. When the time comes these capaictors loose value and create problems for the main computer to communicate with other mechanical system in the camcorder. We were able to service well 7 years ago but the life of these component has aged too much to make it good anymore. I wish I have a better news for you but the success repair on 'ES model is very slim and if repaired, the labor charge may run many times over of the value of this camcorder. You can probably obtain a newer used camcorder at decent price and get all you tapes into DVD quick. Good luck -James
