    I have the same problem. I eas digityzing on my Avid Adrinaline when the deck went off line as I put a Sony mini dv tape in the dsr1. All i hear now is a clicking sound every few seconds. The caution light comes on sometimes but is not always on it only fashes. I've tried removing the power supply and letting it sit for a while then pluging it back in while holding the eject button but still nothing. I've tried the same thing with the power, FF re and play button pushed but still nothing.

    I have the same problem. I loaded my DVCam tape and it got stuck, it won't eject, play, FF or anything. I also get the clicking sound like it wants to eject but nothing. I also tried removing the power, holding the eject button, turning the machine on it's side and upside down. Would love any suggestions.

Your DC to DC converter start up with protection,It been disteract with something,you don`t have a part of power supply. If you have another DCR 11 you can change board JC 12. I think that is the problem. Good luck!

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

VCR won't eject tape or play & powers off


It sounds as though it's jammed. If you're mechanically inclined you can unplug the unit, take the cover off, and manually eject it. Just look for the motor that drives the load basket and manually spin the shaft. The guide-posts should retract towards the tape and the basket will then lift and eject. Just be aware that whatever bit of tape that's out of the cassette won't spool back in. You will have to do that bu hand once it's out.
When you're done, plug it back in and let it cycle then put an old cheap tape in and see if it works. If not, take it in for repair.

Cannot get tape to eject


It could be a couple of different issues. These things could help.
(1) Power OFF the camera, remove battery then replace the battery, power up the cam and try to eject tape again. Nothing? try...
(2) Gently press inward on the tape cover with both thumbs a few times. Then, while pressing gently inward with one hand, press the release/eject-tape function until you hear a click or release sound. Then, if it doesn't open automatically, gently "help" open the hatch.

If it remains stuck, after follwing these steps a few times it would be my guess that perhaps the camera has been dropped in a way that jammed the mechanism controlling the eject function.

TIPS that may prevent having eject problems: When loading tape, be sure to insert the tape correctly and slowly, makeing sure the tape is placed properly. Gently press on the specific location indicated to close the tape holder, and wait for the tape to "seat" properly before closing any other part of the tape cover or hatch mechanism. Taking a few extra seconds when loading the tape can save extended frustration later.

Tape not ejecting from drive after 60 secs pressing eject button. I can hear it 'clicking' but no attempt to eject the tape is made. I would be very grateful for some advice regarding what I might do next.


can you detail the model No or compaq spares No for the drive - the clicking makes it sound to me like a DAT but unable to proceed without more info.

If it is a DAT (compaq used both Sony and HP mechs) try disconnecting the scsi cable from the scsi card, rebooting the drive and trying again.

If that doesnt work try a 00pt screwdriver in the manual eject point of the drive and unload manually (about 1000 turns!)

Failing that try www.tape-drive-repair.com as they are pretty good price wise for a repair / exchange

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

VHS got jammed, clicks, turns self off


Open it up and next to the right spindal where the tape goes there should be a small, black B-S button, press it in with a pencil or pin, and it should reset the VCR's computer.

Tape will not eject / Battery full


while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.

This seams to be the problem, all the time, plus the sound goes off on most of theses camcorders, and the only way they will work is with an boom, mic.

Could I use an tape clearer when it says eject?
