Good Day, you need to supply 4.5V DC regulated to the loading motor, however you should disconnect the connector from main board to loading motor, in order not to damage the driver IC. If your technically inclined, and you have the equipment, do it, if your not sure, just refer it to the nearest svc ctr. thanks

Cassate tape will not eject from my Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder


I found a temporary solution for this problem. When the tray with the cassette tape comes out remove the battery so that the tray will not go inside again. Now on top of the tray it will be written as "PRESS" just adjucent to it you can see a spring connected to the tray just press the string down wards and the tray opens and you can replace the battery. Hope this can help.

Removing dv cassettes manually


open the unit and look for a small motor that ejects the tape through a series of mechanical gears, slides and hinges. Now turn this motor by hand.

Can not load mini DV in my camcorder


Did you clean your heads? Could be a faulty tape transport mechanism tape path is not getting aligned. Regular maintenance & adjustment is critical. Pay attention to the degradation of the rubber on the pinch roller, which grips and pulls the tape during transport. This rubber should be replaced at regular intervals. If it's old enough to be out of warranty, there may be a part failure, like a spring or clutch in the camcorder itself. Unless you can see something obvious (like a foreign object - kids you know) there's not much you can do on your own. I would send it for repair. Good luck
