Hi,, try to put the camera in vcr mode and press rewind button and fast foward alternately until the tape start to move then press eject few time
if its not a big mechanism problem you may be able to ejected if not that will have to be made manually
by removing the cover and look where the tape is hook in the mechanism ;i sugest to you to call a
hope that will help you.
Poor contact of drum motor connection(flexi found at the upper part of the drum assy). Solution, disconnect this wire from the connector and cut 1mm from the end so that it will make a new contact. WIre will be shortened a little bit but it still can work this way since this flexi can not be ordered alone, it comes complete with the whole drum assy. Good Luck
1. The drum cannot be started or drum rotation is stopped
because tape transport load is too high.
1) Tape tension is extremely high.
2) The tape is damaged or soiled with grease, etc.
2. The DRUM FG signal is not received by the syscon
1) Disconnection in the middle of the signal line.
2) Failure of the DRUM FG pulse generator (hall element).
3. No drum control voltage is supplied to the MDA.
4. No power is supplied to the DRUM MDA.
I tried every method I could find from people posting on the web, but the method that worked for me is this.
1. Eject the tape and close the tape holder.
2. Turn the camera off and remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back in. Leave the camera off.
4. Open the tape holder.
5. Slide the tape in, but as you press the holder in to accept the tape, keep your finger pressing in on the holder, being careful not to slow the tape holder from moving downward.
6. Turn the camera on.
7. If it doesn't work the first time, press more firmly to help the tape holder accept the tape.
That's it. This method seems to work for me and lets me use the camera for a long while. If the camera is sitting unused for more than a few hours, I have to do it again. And each time I insert a tape, I make sure that I keep pressing as the tape holder lowers the tape.
Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on &
videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as
a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more
skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video
& audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who
helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment
going off. My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon,
they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).
