Tape not loading

The tape does no load into the camera. It beeps and rejct it.
help..... Tape also not loading. Tape compartment closes o.k with no tape inserted. Have been told it will cost at least 200 quid to fix!!! Might be better off investing in a new one? Out of interest can I use memory card to record or is this just for stills?

SOURCE: tape not loading

I READ THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLKEM THIS MORNING ONTHIS WEBSITE, BUT I CAN NO LONGER FIND IT.

THE SOLUTION SUGGESTED DROPPING THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETED FLOOR FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AS A FIX.

THERE WAS ALSO A POSTING FROM A GUY WHO HAD FOLLOWED THIS ADVICE AND IT FIXED HIS CAMERA.

SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW SUIT AND I DROPPED THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETTED FLOORT FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AND WHEN I TRIED IT WITH THE TAPE IT WORKED, NO JOKE, THIS IS AN HONEST AND TRUTHFUL REPORT.

I have a Sony handycam DRC-HC26. After placing the DV tape the tape refuse to load into the tape compartment and as such the tape door cannot be closed. Please advise.


Hi,
The mechanical of tape loading compartment is misaligned and it needs readjustment which is a bit technical issue. Please contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of tape loading path assembly.
This will solve your problem.
Thanks.

Tape not loading


Chances are it is in need of a major cleaning. Usually by the time this happens the cleaning tape will do no good. A good internal cleaning is usually the only thing that will help it........Has it been droped? If it has then you could need repairs

Canon zr200 cassette loading


reading other threads here the soloution that works, yes for real, slap it on the tape side (closed) a few times then try to reload the tape, if it doesn't work the first time, close it and try slaping a few more times. I had to do it a few times but it does work.

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.

TAPE COMPARTMENT KEEPS POPPING OPEN


I Had The Same Issue And Fixed It :o) I Have A Sony Handycam CCD F-730A 8mm. I put the tape in and close it but it would not load the tape down. It just pop back out. If I took the tape out, it works perfectly and would loaded the tape doc down and close.

1st: I unscrewed and removed the door to the tape. Where the tape can be seen. 2 screws hold it down. Without the tape inside. I Saw a Clear Small Plastic in the inside of the camera where the tape sits on each side. On Both Sides, Left and Right are clear plastic like sensors. They look Like Glass and are small.

2nd: I Cleaned them both with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. It Worked. The tape loaded and worked nicely.

It was strange. If i touched one of the small glass like sensors. the mechanism the loede the tape would not work. When The Glass sensor was blocked by the tape or just by my finger in front of it, it would not load. Very strange.
