Question about Canon MVX200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When i try to close the cassette compartment without a tape inserted,
the mechanism drops down and immediately rises. If i try to do this
with a cassette in, the mechanism will not drop at all. THis means that
i can not use the cam corder at all. Is there some psrt of the loading
mechanism interlocked with the cover that may have become damaged?
Have not tried taking it to a shop or sending it off yet.
Hope someone can help.

SOURCE: Will Not Load Cassette
I have the zr850 which I have used less than a dozen times, and it does the same thing as you describe. Was told by canon tech people to try a maxell brand tape and a head cleaner tape. Have not tried their sugestion yet. camera is 3 months old.

I am having this same problem and I did a test. There appears to be some type of light sensor that fits in the tape when you try to close it. When there is no tape the loading mechanisim will work. If you put in a tape it covers the sensor and will reject the tape. I used a clear straw and covered the sensor and it closed. I then blocked the ligh from coming in the straw and covered the sensor and it ejected the same as having the tape in. Does anyone know where I get get this part?
