Re: camera cassette errors

Often in this situation there are two issues that can casue the problem you are having. 1. The tape is casuing the camera to "reject" it. In other words, it thinks there is something wrong with the tape so it is warning you with the error message. Perhaps the cassette has been damaged slightly. This error can also happen when the tape has been used often or taped over a few times. Solution: Try using a new tape. 2. The camera may need to be cleaned. The recording heads may be dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. These are cheap fixes. If it works, great. Otherwise it may need to be serviced by your local technician. Let me know how it goes.

The tape runs for 3 seconds then error message ''please re-insert cassette / on screen error code C:32:22 - head cleaner tape has the same effect

When I got this error I removed the battery for 10 seconds and then put it back in. Camera should come on automatically. I just did this to mine and it seems to work.

My problem is error c3122

The error C:31:22 indicates that the problem is in mechanical section of the tape loading path, it need mechanical adjustment, Actually most of the time this problem appears when the insertion of the cassette is improper or due to dirt/dust mechanical gears start malfunction and a sensor in the mechanical detects it and self diagnostic system shows this error,
Your camera only needs mechanical adjustment and it work fine again, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment.

MX2, it displays the following: "remove the cassette" or eject. I thought it was a condensation problem but all attempts failed, please help me.

On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.
