Loading unit problem is a common mechanical problem in camcorders. To remedy the problem, trained tech need to disassemble the mechanical system around the loading and replace few broken gears (plastics) and adjust it. Repair cost may run close to half of the new camcorder. If you really got to repair this camera for some sentimental reason or for special needs otherwise better to invest the repair charge into a new camcorder.

Try these steps: 1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open. 2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode." 3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery. 4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape. Although this worked for me, I then inserted and used a head cleaner tape which then became stuck as well. Tried the same trick to eject it, and it did come out after several tries. I will take it for a repair estimate before inserting any other tape.

Please describe your cannon laserbase 5630 showing paper check error after printing one print problem:


Hi mani4u58,
After the print,does the alarm indicator show?
Are the papers loaded and aligned in the correct way in the printers cassette?Please align them well and also note that the cassette can hold only around 250 sheets at a go.Remove the cassette completely when loading the papers and after paper load,insert the cassette as far as it can go.Does the printer feed paper correctly?If not,there may be a paper jam.To clear the jam,open the front cover by pulling it towards you.Remove the cartridge and inspect the compartment.Also make sure the orange adhesive tape around the cartridge is full removed to free its connections.You can also unplug the printer and leave it for a while and then plug it back to clear jam.


Hope it helps.Thanks!

I have a canon zr 100 camcorder. the problem i am having is that it keeps ejecting a cassette when i am trying to load a cassette.it will close without a cassette in the compartment.please let me know what...


Usually caused by a nearly dead battery or a bad cassette. However...before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign objects, such as filament paper that cassettes are wrapped, in cassette slot.
1) make sure battery is fully charged
2) try using a new cassette

8mm Cassette mechanism fails to eject or sometimes fails to close


This camcorder is at least six years old now, and replacements are available quite cheaply vie on-line auction sites, probably at far less than the cost of repair.

Cann't eject cassette from Canon ZR60


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.

Loading tapes


I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.

Cassette will not load!


I have one doing the same thing. I called Cannon and the told me I would have to send it in for service. Now after reading that about 10 other folks having the same issue, I think Cannon has some issue with the ZR100.

Cassette am


To unload the videocassette from the cassette compartment, the camcorder needs to be connected to a power source (either an electrical outlet or a charged battery). Please refer to the following instructions. Connect the camcorder to the power source or insert the fully charged battery pack, and then slide the EJECT switch to open the cassette compartment cover. The cassette compartment cover will open, and then the compartment will open automatically.
