Question about Canon Video Cameras
My Video8 Canon UC900 has been working well, as I am transfering all my old footage to my PC, however I inserted one of the tapes and is will not play/fwd/rew/eject - it isn't the tape because I inserted and played this earlier and I have put the tape in the 'right way round' so either something just broke or perhaps the tape was put in slightly crooked and it has got stuck?
If I press eject I hear all the right noises, but no movement.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I get the tape back out - perhaps some technical drawings of which screws etc to remove? I currently believe the camcorder to be working OK and suspect the tape is jammed rather than the eject mechanism broken.

our MV800 was doing the the same so i "accidentally" dropped it (i got a bit frustrated and it was out of warranty) and now it works fine. please note it dropped about half a meter on carpeted floor while it was off.
Hope this helps
