Cassete holder stays out cannot get it to close either empty or if i put cassete in it states that it is in safty mode on jvc model no gr-d240ek


Can you hear when you close the cassette compartiment that the drummotor is rotating? If not probably the flexwire from the drummotor is loose. Sometimes you can fix this but it is better to send it to an autorized repairshop

Loading tapes

I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

Loading tapes

I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.

The cassette holder isn't closing......and the tape is not loading

See if this works--If you are on battery there may not be enough power .Charge the battery or use the the mains power through the transformer and see if it works.

Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.

I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
