Question about Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I opened the cassette compartment of my Cannon ZR60 camcoder. The cassette loading unit came up halfway and is stuck now. It neither goes down nor comes up fully. Please help
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.

Tips for a great answer:
This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
