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.

Use a hairdryer to warm up the cassette area. My camcorder did same thing and this worked.

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.

Will not rewind


Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.

If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Dew and casette eject


With the dew indication, the tape will not load. This is to prevent the tape from getting stuck inside the unit. If "drying out" the unit has had no effect, either the sensor itself is bad or the connections to it are defective. Opening these is no simple task for the novice. Bring it in for service. It should not be more than about $100 to fix this problem.

ERROR: please remove the casette


There is likely a problem with the transport mechanism. This is something that should be serviced be a professional repair shop.

Casette door stuck open


This mechanism was shared by a number of jvc models and works great til it stops. It has been my experience that most often the entire mechanism is cheap enough it becomes the prefered method for repair. This of course is a shop repair issue. Time is more costly than the part. Entire repair about $150.00. Good luck, magic seadog
