Question about Canon Elura 90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I tried to rewind a tape that was in the camera, heard a loud sound and then the message eject tape came on. I tried to load another tape and it won't go down. It tries to engage and then ejects the tape.
Previously, the camera was on the card mode. I changed to video tape mode and still it does not engage the tapes.
Actueally the loading section of the camera is mechanically unstable.And it needs mechanical adjustment.A sensor is present in its loading section that provide information of the presence of the tape in this section,When the mech. get unstable the sensor disfunctons.
Therefore,In short,Your camera needs mechanical adjustment.For this please contact any expert nearby to solve this.
Thanks for using fixya.

Make sure the power is on this unit and you are pluged into a good source of power. The disk tray needs power to lower. A lot of tapes get loose in there case and need to be fast forwarded and then rewound completely in order to help spool them properly in their case. And what you are experiencing sounds a lot like this. It is also possible that you need to buy a head cleaning unit for your elura and run it in the camera for 10 secs and then try again. (Did you try this with a New tape? or just used ones?) We bought a small tape rewinding unit for around 39 dollars that helps us to rewind the mini DV tapes without adding wear and tear on our camera and it seems to help with the issue of loose tapes in the camera getting rejected as they won't wrap around the tape head as nice.

Tips for a great answer:
This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry, a stripped gear or a bad motor. This will require disassembling the camera to diagnose and repair. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired qualified service technician.
