Tape ejects on a JVC GR-D275U camcorder but will not autoclose
The battery is fully charged and the camera is stuck in the open position. I insert the tape, and close the metal lid where it says ''push''. The tape and assemble should then auto-slide back into the camera, but it does not move or make any noise.

E01 Mechanism has not fully loaded up to the stop position
E-01, E-02, E-05, or E-06 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code which is to inform a technician which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem. Try the following steps: 1) Remove power source for 1 minute. 2) Reattach power source. 3) Try operating the camera. The indication E-03 or E-04 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code. This is to inform an independent JVC authorized service center which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem. The E-03 or E-04 code relates to one of the tape spindles not turning. This could be the result of too much slack on the video tape. If E-03 or E- 04 is displayed it may be possible to correct the problem by removing the tape slack. In order to do this follow these steps: 1) Remove power source for 1 minute. 2) Reattach power source. 3) Press "EJECT" (DO NOT PRESS POWER) 4) Repeat above steps until tape ejects. 5) Tighten and insert a new tape."
A common E01 problem with the JVC is caused by electrically conductive residues on the very end of the connector strip which connects the small front circuit panel to the main circuit panel (this residue can only be seen under a microscope). Symptoms are, the mechanism remains closed or the cassette holder will not latch down and remains permanently raised. Basically the micro cannot read the mechanism position data. The connector strip needs to be taken out & carefully cleaned with alcohol.
If all else fails then its a trip to JVC service and a biil of between $`100 and $250 depending on what the problem is. My last E01 was a motor change and cost $180 but the cam has been fine ever since but next cam will be a Canon..
Eject tape leaving cover open and remove battery. Re-insert battery and re-insert tape also leaving cover open. Keep repeating this process until eo4 message disappears. This worked for my GR-DVL100e after about four repeats. After getting your camcorder operational, they say it is good practice not to leave tape in camcorder when not in use.
Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera.
Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
