The first thing you should try is removing the batteries for 20 to 30 minutes to reset the unit. If this does not work push in on the cassette mechanism at the top while trying to eject. Also check the tape compartment cover screws to make sure they are tight. Any misalignment in the cover mechanism will cause binding which will create the problem you describe. Finally, and I know this will sound unusual, slap the unit on the cassette side. Forcefully but not enough to break anything. This procedure has been helpful many times with similar problems. I know it is not sientific but hey if it works. If none of the procedures solves your problems you may need professional help.

This problem can be caused by condensation. Leave camera and tapes in a warm dry place for a day and try again. If that doesn't help, there may be a tape threading fault. This can be something as simple as a broken drive belt, but still will require professional attention.

How do i get the casette out of the canon mv700i ? i see a push button on the casette but it doesnt work.


You may need to have a charged battery pack attached to the camcorder (or use the mains power lead, if applicable), so that the camcorder has power to open the cassette door. You may even need to turn the camcorder on. These are safety refinements so that the eject button does not accidentally open the door, leading to possible loss of cassette or damage to the camcorder itself.

We have a Sylvania TV/VCR combo with a tape inside that won't eject. The result is that the TV shuts off after a couple of seconds. The model number is SSC192


Hello
The belts in the VCR mechanism should be replaced. They are loose and elongatee. Due to this, proper loading of casette won't take place. If so, the video casette will not load properly, willl stop at its middle, will cause a short for the secondary supply; and finally will shut down the TV, and that is happens now with your device now. The inserted casette wont come out. You ahve to open the system, and take the casette out manually by turning the mechanism. If you have enough knoledge you can do it by yoursef. If not get it repaired by any experienced service technician. Never switch ON and OFF this set at this condition. It will make mor faults to get in with power supply system. OK.

I HAVE A CANON PIXMA MP830 INK JET PRINTER WHICH HAS A PAPER JAM CAN YOU HELP


Hi,

Here are the basic steps that can resolve your issue.

- Paper jam in the Paper feeder or in the output slot
pull out the paper slowly, if the paper tears open the printer cover(scanning unit) and remove the paper (careful not to touch any printer components) after removing the paper restart the printer, then redo the printing process.

-Paper jam inside the machine
Open the rear cover, if you seen the paper remove it, then close the back cover then restart the printer and redo the printing process, if your unable to get the paper from the rear cover, open the casette infront of the printer and slowly pull out the paper, return the casette and restart the machine..

If your still unable to get the paper,
remove the casette, stand the machine with the left side on the buttom (make sure its not the right side) pull out the paper while pulling the green cover toward you, return the casette, restart the machine and redo the printing.

If your having difficulties or still unable to remove the paper contact the canon support center in your area.

Here is a link where you can see visual step by step procedures.

I hope this will help you a lot.

Thank you for choosing fixya.

Car casette player won't accept cassettes. I put a cassette in and it spits it right back out.


Your casette player must have something lodged in it that's why it spits the casette tape back out. If you are able to, try dislodging the player from your dashboard. Shake it and if there's something noisy inside, chances are that's your culprit. Try to get it out by shaking the player while keeping the casette tape door open - like getting coins from a piggy bank. :)

Hope this helps!

Y is the carpet in my x5 boot wet (where the sat nav goes)


most likely the sunroof casette is leaking; either the drains are clogged,the casette is allowing water to leak, or you have the older casette with poor water management;i would open your rear hatch and check the drain, with the hatch open, there are two drains one on each side at the top of the body, where the hatch meets the body; there is a small door to each drain(recommend removing) if you open that small door and water pours out most likely thats the souce of your leak. you can also see if you can push water into the drains to unclog them; you can also lower the headliner in the rear, open the sunroof, and pour water into the casette to see where the water leaks out and go from there; usually the backing on the headliner doesn't soak up water and it channels the water into one area; since your vehicle is an 05 and hopefully under 75000 miles the dealership can goodwill a repair. you may even look into an aftermarket extended warranty and make sure they cover the sunrrof in the warranty; replacing a sunroof casette is a big job, not recommended for the diy;

Put tape in new video cassette


TAKING A GOOD QUALITY TAPE FROM ONE CASETTE AND MOVE TO ANOTHER WITHOUT HARMING THE TAPE QUALITY: TAKE A NEW, GOOD CASETTE AND UNSCREW THE 5 SCREWS HOLDING THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE TOGETHER. AT THIS POINT DO NOT OPEN THE CASETTE. TURN THE CASETTE UPSIDE DOWN (SO THAT THE SIDE WHERE THE SCREWS CAME OUT IS NOW SITTING DOWNWARDS ON A FLAT SURFACE) IF YOU OPEN THE CASETTE BEFORE TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN, ALL KINDS OF SMALL PIECES WILL FALL OUT AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM. NOW GENTLY SEPARATE THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE AND PAY ATTENTION TO EXACTLY WHERE THE TAPE RUNS THROUGH VARIOUS SPINDLES, ETC. MAKE A SKETCH IF THIS WILL HELP YOU. GENTLY LIFT OUT THE TAPE AND REPLACE IT WITH THE TAPE THAT WAS IN THE BROKEN CASETTE. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT THE ONLY DAMAGE WAS TO THE CASETTE ITSELF AND NOT THE TAPE. REPLACE THE TOP PART OF THE CASETTE (WITH THE SCREW HOLDS STILL FACING DOWNWARDS). HOLDING THE TWO PIECES OF THE CASETTE TIGHTLY TOGETHER, TURN IT OVER AND REPLACE THE SCREWS. TRY NOT TO HANDLE THE TAPE ITSELF. I HAVE USED RIGHT FITTING SURGEON'S GLOVES WHILE DOING THIS, BUT REALLY DON'T KNOW IF THEY HELP, BUT THEY DO KEEP THE NATURAL OILS OF THE FINGERS OFF THE TAPE.
