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.

Your eject problem will be one of three things. 1- the gears for the eject mechanism have shifted and not making contact with each other. You can fix this by realigning the gears. 2- The gears are stripped and need replaced. 3- there is a small plastic pin that releases the cassette bay. check to see if this pin is broken. If so, then you will need to replace the pin or the gear the pin is attached to. With this being an older model, parts will be extremely hard to find. Let's hope that the gears are just misaligned.

sir if your camcorder is new then it has a warranty. we should send it first for their service because they have a spare parts for replacement and info. if your going to fix it by yourself then the warranty of that will be void. by the way the place for the service center for camcorder samsung in the philippines is in makati i think. i got a problem with my samsung just like your model and they told me that it is located at makati. hope that helps!

Problem with reel, could be your cassette causes the problem.In case your cassette stuck, eject the cassette by applying power on it and keep cassette door open for 5 sec or more until cassette ejected, then use other cassette. Otherwise have it check by the expert. Good Luck

Camcorder continues to show"REMOVE CASSETTE" notice


You are not alone. This is a known service problem for this series of cameras. Cannon has a service notice on its website. Look here:

Have a jvc camcorder turn on and it says safe mode remove battery


Forget the battery, the mini dv carrage assy can get out of sync and initiate the safe mode, if you noticed a problem loading the tape or have heard a gear skip sound thats the problem. The best you can do with those camcorders is keep the tape in the camcorder!!!!! That will prevent the problem and insure many good years of recording.

Sorry,

Tim.

Panasonic dv camcorder keep havin


This error indicates a cassette mechanism malfunction.
It happens usually when you don't operate the camecorder for long time leaving the cassette inside and the battery attached.
Solution:
1.
Open the cassette housing and nock GENTLY with your finger tip
on the cassette cabinet (particularly on the position marked "push") until
the cassette is released.
2.
Push on the right place (marked "push") to close and then close the
cassette housing.
3.
Operate the cassette (play, fast forward/backward).
Repeat the above steps several times until the problem is gone.
Advise: Remove the battery and cassette when leaving the camecorder for long period without being operated, and store the camcorder in a dust/humidity protected place.
Hope this can help.

Cassette will not load!


I have one doing the same thing. I called Cannon and the told me I would have to send it in for service. Now after reading that about 10 other folks having the same issue, I think Cannon has some issue with the ZR100.
