The tape will not eject, battery is charged, help! Thank you!
Touch screen is blinking with the letter "C" showing and it's making a repeating chime sound, it has done this before and has stopped after I replace the tape but this time the auto tape eject is not working and the tape is stuck. Thank you for your assistance. Paul

E03 Take-up error Most common in the Mini-DV models. This problem can be defective reel tables, or it can also be a defective rotary encoder. You can expect to pay intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts are nominal.
The indication E-03 or E-04 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code. This is to inform an independent JVC authorized service center which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem.
The E-03 or E-04 code relates to one of the tape spindles not turning. This could be the result of too much slack on the video tape. If E-03 or E-04 is displayed it may be possible to correct the problem by removing the tape slack. In order to do this follow these steps:
1) Remove power source for 1 minute. 2) Reattach power source. 3) Press "EJECT" (DO NOT PRESS POWER) 4) Repeat above steps until tape ejects. 5) Tighten and insert a new tape."
I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60. The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own. I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever. Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps. Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it. I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it. Good Luck to you.
while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.
I have had the same problem...usually had success by taking off the battery, putting it back on, turning the power off and on, etc. It has always gone back in eventually. I also tried re-charging the battery and replacing. Could this be an old battery problem? Mine is 4.5 years old.
