SOURCE: Mechanical problem "C.EMG" from my SC-A30 camcorder

for all those who try to fix a samsung camcoder with a mechanical problem in which the message on the display is "C.EMG", thie is the solution : the problem is caused by the socket through which the axle of the cabestan motor passes through. the socket is fitted in the aluminium case of the motor. as it is known, aluminium suffers a process of seasoning/ageing and the bronze socket is no longer fitted in its original position. The socket moves towards the exterior and the cabestan, which consists of a magnet,  gets near the 6 coils of the motor, starting a retardation effect. This problem can be solved by fitting the bronze socket with a small quantity of superglue or poxipol

Samsung VP-D361 Mini DV Digital Camcorder - have not used for a year and now it will not close the tape compartment. I have tried several tapes but when you push the tape in and push down the edge to close...


will it close with out a tape in. if its not doing it with the tape in there is a motor that pulls down something cannot remember its name. so when the deck goes in it can lock in place and hit the switch. if the switch has been damaged it will just eject the deck again. has one swith to say tape in and other switch is for table loaded. sounds like the loaded one is at fault. happens if you leave a tape in for a long time and not been used.

My VCR/DVD combo wont play a VHS tape when inserted. Each time I insert a VHS tape, it shoots it right back out and sometimes unravels the tape around the apparatuses inside the VCR. It won't reco


the tape coming back out and unravels the tape means the loading mechanism is the problem----when a tape goes in it loads the tape down, then it pulls the tape out of the cassette and puts it up against the drum with the video heads-----many of these are belt driven and a bad belt or belts will cause this----it is called the loading and or transport mechanism.......when it fails the arms come back but the tape does not get rewound back into the cassette so it mangles it when the cassette door on the tape closes----most likely a belt or the drive idler which also rewinds and fast forwards the tape.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

How do you close the door when there is no tape in the recorder


If it is like my Samsung Mini-DV, it will go in by itself if you close the top part as if you had just put a tape in. There is an outer door, then a kind of drawer that slides out on its own power, then the tape compartment pops up. If you are putting a tape in, you then push that pop-up part down into the powered drawer. It's like pinching the two halves together. You can do the same thing without the tape.There will be a pause, then the powered drawer will go back into the camera and you close the outer door by hand.

Possibly your model is different.

VCR tape stuck in VCR


One way is to take off the cover of the unit so that you can see where the tape is hung up and help push the tape out. (One of two problems are usually involved: the cassette cover isn't closing down evenly (a high corner blocking the travel path) or a loop of the tape blocking the cover closing.)

On my VCR unit it was ~4 screws on the back that held the cover in place. (That was VCR only. There might be a few more screws in the larger unit.)

I hope this helps.

It won't allow tape !


I had the same problem with my ZR200. It would not accept the tape, even a new one. I happened on this site and read about 20 comments from people who had the same problem. They all solved it the same way. You close camera's LCD screen and turn that side face down. Next you place your left hand under that side, close your right fist and gently slap the top side(cassette side) of the camera with the bottom of your fist. It worked for me the first time and now works GREAT! I had called a repair shop who told me to bring it in for repair and then I was looking on the internet for a replacement camera when I happened upon this site. Yes, I do believe in miracles! Good Luck.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Tape door wont close


I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
