    Canon ZR65 - Pain in the *ss. I was going on vacation and was looking forward to taking videos of such. Stupid camera began saying to remove cassette. Tried 4 brand new cassettes and received same message. Once I got to Cancun, MX, it said humidity detected. Back home now and still not working. Any ideas how to repair this junk?

Try inserting a cleaning cassette. There may be something on you video heads and your camera is protecting itself from damage. If it wont let you play the cleaning cassette consider using some compressed air via a can of "blow-off" or similiar product. If that doesn't change anything send it in for repair.

Why does the tape get caught in my toshiba rd-xv45kb recorder when i try to eject the cassette and the tape snaps


Not sure about the Toshiba but generally when inserting a cassette it is lowered onto the tape drive. There is a device that will register the presence of a tape which used to commonly be a phototransistor or similar mounted on a short post that is covered by the cassette.

Once the machine knows a tape has been inserted, when play is pressed two vertical rods move towards the heads dragging the tape with them enough for it to make contact with the sound head and wrap part of the way around the video head to make playback possible.

When stop, forward or reverse winding or eject is pressed those two rods move back to the starting position and the surplus tape is wound back into the cassette.

If a cassette ejects leaving a loop of tape that can mostly be pulled out little damaged the reeling in mechanism isn't working. If the tape is jammed and comes free only after breaking the rods aren't returning to the start position.

Engineers use an empty cassette case suitably modified so once the vcr cover has been removed the operation can be observed. The problem might be a worn belt or rubber drive wheel or a problem with the hidden linkages - or it might be an electronic problem.

probably caused by the mechanism being mis-timed. re-timing isn't difficult, but a service manual is absolutely necessary.

Error C31:40 will not take in a cassette


After not using my camera (Sony HVR-V1U) for one week, I took it out for an assignment but the error keeps coming up C:31:40 asking me to eject the cassette. The camera never gave me problems before this.I have tried smacking it at the bottom with the flat of my hand, flowing it with a hair dryer, shaking it, opening the cassette door for hours but nothing seems to work. The sony technician says I may have to send it in for repairs can any one help before I have to resort to this?

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.
