Cassette will not stay in

Camera was sat on while cassette door was open. It jamed - now it keeps spitting the cassette back out. I had to bend the door back slightly to make it latch but do not see any other damage.

This is a serious mechanicle problem, you may have to take it to the service center, or else blind tries may spoil the equipment.

The cassette mechanism on my My Panasonic PV-GS120 camcorder will not open. The outer door opens and the camera repeatedly makes a sound like it is trying to raise the cassette but something is holding it...

This looks like the door is jammed. Try to yank it out after pressing the eject button. Try this a few times and if the mechanism is not damaged should set it right. DONT USE TOO MUCH OF FORCE CAUSE THERE IS A RISK OF DAMAGE.
Plz. dont forget to rate my suggestions.

From your question, it sounds like you are trying to view a video which has already been recorded on. If that is correct, the video cassette may need to be rewound to the beginning of the tape,

Have a JVC GR-D72U video camera. A E03 indicator keeps coming on and it goes into safe mode. What can be done? How can it be fixed?

This problem mostly happen due to defective cassette, by ejecting it, it will solve your problem. If your tape stuck-up inside, apply power, open cassette door, keep it open (around 5 sec) until it opens. and try with another cassette. It must work if not, expert are needed in this case. Good Luck

Car casette player won't accept cassettes. I put a cassette in and it spits it right back out.

Your casette player must have something lodged in it that's why it spits the casette tape back out. If you are able to, try dislodging the player from your dashboard. Shake it and if there's something noisy inside, chances are that's your culprit. Try to get it out by shaking the player while keeping the casette tape door open - like getting coins from a piggy bank. :)

Hope this helps!

Cassette doesn't load and move down into machine

I had the same problem. With the camera on, keep taking the battery off and putting it back on. Start to close the door and then open it. Eventually you should hear it try to move. Keep doing it and it should move down all the way.

Aj-d200 video camera, cassette door stuck partially open. best diagnosis and/or remedy?

Partially open sounds like a mechanical problem with the cassette housing/door assembly. The door usually stays fully open or will not open at all, caused by component failure on the mechanical driver board. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the mechanism, like a label or a broken piece from a cassette. If the door will move, but will not latch closed, the problem is most likely on th emechanical driver board.

Cassette jam

I had this problem, and here is how it was resolved.

My cassette would not pop out when I opened the door with the camera turned on. When I turned off the camera and opened the door, it slid out much further, but still failed to pop open so that I could remove the tape. Then it slid back in.

Remove the battery, and have the camera off, but make sure the power cord is connected. Open the door until the tape slides out further than at other times. (Note: It intermittently slides out further when the camera is off. Sometimes it will not slide out any further than when it is on.) When the tape is slid out as far as it will go, quickly remove the power cord. The tape will stay in the slid-out position. Now, at the bottom side of the tape door there is a curved channel for a small pin to slide in. This channel has a 90% curve at the bottom of the channel to catch the pin, which holds the door closed. Push that pin back a little (toward the lense) to get it to go around that 90% curve, and the door will pop open so you can remove your tape. The ribbon of your tape will be jammed in the camera a little, so you will have to be careful and move the ribbon around a little until you can get it out freely.

This worked for me twice. I did not try putting a tape in again.

I hope this helps.
