Question about Canon MV3i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Canon MV3i When I turn the camera on (power dial in any orientation) I instantly get a "Remove cassette" message accompanied by a bleeping sound. After approx 10 secs the message and bleep stop and are replaced by an "Eject" message. I remove the cassette and then replace but get exactly the same sequence of events. I remove the cassette and replace with a new one. The new cassette works for approx 10 mins and then same sequence as previously encountered ("Remove cassette", Bleep,"Eject"). I have now tried approx 10 new cassettes and had the same problem with each.

SOURCE: Message reads eject. won't eject

Ihatecanon, Tried the steps you provided above with no luck. Then decided to gently smack the camera twice on the right-top side of the tape compartment. It freaking worked the first time. Got this idea by watching Eric Cartman on South Park... No, really. I read about this in another forum. It's a quick $150 back in your pocket. Just think. You sent the camera to their tech guys and paid them 150 to SMACK-IT :)

I have read that slapping the non-foldout display side of the camera a few times has worked for several people.

Usually the cassette mechanism just needs cleaning when this happens, and a camera repair or tv repair shop can clean it. You can try a dry or wet cleaner, and they're available on the net (just google it), or try
Best Buy or Radio Shack.
If a cleaning doesn't fix the problem, it will have to be serviced.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Where is the power button for canon eos elan iie?


There isn't one. To turn on the camera, hold down the lock release button (just inboard of the command dial) and turn the command dial from the "L" position. To turn off the camera, hold down the lock release and turn the dial to the "L" position.

My Cannon ImageRUNNER 2270 is not printing the entire page. It is cutting off the top quarter of the page. I have changed the margin settings and it is not doing anything different.


Check to make sure that the paper size dial on the paper cassette is the same as the paper size in the cassette. Portrait or landscape? I don't know whether you use American sized paper but the dial Must be LTR ( front to rear orientation of paper ) or LTR-R ( Left to right orientation ). I know of no other reason for the problem.

Copier orientation is incorrect. We print or copy something "portrait" and the result is "landscape"


Check to make sure that the paper size/ orientation dial is correct for the paper in the paper cassette.

Clearing credit card-sized paper jammed inside the printer
Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Load the same paper type that is jammed inside the printer in portrait orientation.

  3. Power on the printer.
    The paper stock in the ASF will automatically feed the jammed paper from the printer.

  4. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

If 4" x 6" sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the cassette and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Open the rear cover.

  3. Fold in four a piece of letter-sized plain paper.

  4. Push in the folded paper until it hits the jammed paper.

  5. If the jammed paper is visible from inside the printer area, pull it out and proceed to step 7.

  6. If the jammed paper cannot be pulled out, push in the folder paper from the rear so the jammed paper is in between the feed rollers.

  7. Pull out the folded paper and close the rear cover.

  8. Power on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    The jammed paper should automatically eject.

  9. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.
