Question about Digital Cameras

8 Answers

Hi there, My canon Mv630i Tape cassette loading mechanism is not working right. The carrier which holds the tape cassette rises up ok but the side part does not spring open to allow a cassette to be put in. It waits for a few seconds and then descends to the ready to shoot position.

    Hi again,
    The camera has never been dropped to my knowledge. It was sent for repair when it was under warrenty for a electronic fault This was at switch on, nothing but coloured vertical lines appeared in the view finder and screen. It was repaired and worked ok until recently it started to object to releasing cassettes and finally refuses to open to accept a cassette at all.

    Hi again,
    So the best advice is to send it for repair ? Is there no one who has had this problem before and solved it?

Hi try to do the followin steps...

Reset your camcorder back to factory defaults to attempt to correct this issue:

1. Remove the power adapter, main battery and the backup battery.

a. The backup battery is located behind the main battery.

2. Let camera sit with no power for about 20 minutes.

3. Replace batteries and power adapter to your camera.

4. Power on your camcorder and attempt to load a new tape.

Sometimes if the camcorder is exposed to an environment with high humidity, it is possible for moisture to produce inside of the unit. As a safety mechanism, DEW will flash in the viewfinder (however this error message does not always display), and the camcorder will not load a tape. If this occurs, the camcorder should be taken into a cool dry environment.
The playback and/or recording heads may have dirt or tape particles lodged on them. Try using a dry head cleaning cassette (never use wet type). You can obtain a dry head cleaner at any local store that carries electronics equipment.

If you are unable to load the tape, then verify that there are no obstructions in the compartment, keeping the tape from loading. If there are no obstructions, then the camcorder may need a Tape Path Alignment, or the posts may be loose. This would require servicing to resolve the issue....

thanks

I would suspect that the mechanical portion of your loading mechanism is dirty and binding up. If you watch all of the moving parts your should see places where a qtip and a little bit of rubbing alcohol could be used to clean the mechanical interfaces. A good swabbing to the tape head won't hurt anything either.

The spring inside is stuck which is not getting extended and hence it does not function properly. You have to open it and check which would not be possible unless you get it serviced. If its under warranty, contact canon or your local dealer and get it serviced or repaired under warranty. If we try to troubleshoot, it might get further damaged and void the warranty, if there is one.

You need to repair it from your dealer if its under warranty.

    Chances are it is in need of a major cleaning. Usually by the time this
    happens the cleaning tape will do no good. A good internal cleaning is
    usually the only thing that will help it........Has it been droped? If
    it has then you could need repairs

    I think the is some problem with the spring which got stuck and it is coming up now. Better take it to repair shop otherwise you will end up in damaging it more.

First off, is the camcorder covered by warranty? Warranty repairs by canon would be your best choice in that case.

let me know.
Thanks

    There doesn't seem to be a repair/service manual available for this model, old camera I'm not surprised.

    Basically if the cassette door doesn't eject. we will need to eject it manually. First I'd suggest to try helping the cassette door eject, use a flat small screwdriver and try to help it to open.

    If this doesn't help at all, we may need to take the camcorder apart and find the problem with the eject mechanism, unless another expert has documents for this camcorder you would have to go in blind taking it apart part by part.

    Instead I would suggest considering taking this to a professional repairer.

Hi Donald. not sure how many calls you get from


The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver.
This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends.
Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.

I placed a sony digital8/Hi8 tape in the camera and attempted to record but only got a blinking yellow underscored triangle in the middle of the screen and a blinking code; C32:00 in the upper right corner...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error C 32:00 is caused due to bad Gear assembly, to resolve this issue with the battery &cassette removed try whack on the underside, if after doing this still the issue is not resolved then you'll have to get the Gear assembly replaced. To remove the tape thats stuck you'll have to remove the two screws that hold the cover on the tape holder. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this...


Hi,

It sounds like the tape itself is damaged. Get an head cleaner cassett and clean the mechanism. This will clean the wheels and heads that tape runs over. Also try a new tape cassett to see what happens and listen to the camcorder for any crunching sounds as this would suggest that something has broken inside the camcorder.




Good luck.

Canon hi-8 camcorder will not playback recordings. full battery. ejects tape during playback


It sounds like the tape isn't turning and the player thinks it's to the end of the tape and ejecting it.Perhaps when you rewind its drawing the tape up so tight the sensor thinks it's at the end.Take the tape out and see if you can turn it by hand to release the tension.There's got to be some form of release mechanism to let the tape free wheel.Once loose I'll bet it will playback just fine.

I get 3 to 4 brown bands across the screen when replaying a tape


Hi,
I do not fully understand your question,but if you are talking about a tape camcorder, then I would suggest that you purchase a quality video head cleaner for that particular camera.
It does come as a cassette like the one you take your videos with.
That would be the cheapest "repair"; there are more causes of course.
Worse case: Faulty CCD sensor.

If it does cure your problems with the recorded tapes, is another question.
Good luck

Remove the battery for 30 minutes and try again. When putting the tape on camera press only where indicated by an arrow. Good luck!
