Question about Canon ZR40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Sometimes it even eats the tape so that when I do try to remove it the tape comes out of the cassette.
look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt

I repair gl2s for canon and when you get a remove cassette message 9 times out of 10 it is 2 gears on the m-chassis that have failed they spit oil all over the inside and then the gear comes in contact with the m-chassis and binds up they are both white and in the middle you can see one when you open it and the other is on the inside that you cant see unless you take take the cover off and thats why you get that message but the ribbon part is something else that needs to be looked at you should send it in to a qualified canon repair facility. tell them the chassis is defective its actually code D106, E52, send those codes in with canon and make sure they see them.

I certainly don't intend to be rude or obnotious but your comments on this known prpblem are contraditory to say the least! :
"The problem that you are experiencing with your Canon GL1 camcorder is a common complaint on this model camcorder. The “eject the tape error” is the camcorders way of saying something is wrong and it needs to be sent in for repair. It is not a defect with the camcorder, it is simply the most common complaint when the mechanical assembly is not running smoothly and perfectly." If something is wrong and it's a common problem then it must be defect?!?! Also your pricing for this "repair" is pretty close half of what a used GL goes for over here in Europe. I would definatly be looking for another quote and repair service other than yours!
