It could be possible that the tape is in the wrong way or that the tape is the wrong size those are both reasons that it may not be closing

How long recording time with a dv tape in canon zr70mc


That obviously depends on the length of the tape. With an 80 minute tape, you can record for 80 minutes in SP mode or 120 minutes in LP mode. With a 60 minute tape, the numbers are 60 minutes and 90 minutes.

Tape is stuck


Tapes commonly get stuck in cam operated transports. The belt gets too lose and can not turn the attached cam gear- it is easy to release a tape- you open the unit up and remove the power first. Find the pulley that has a loose belt on it and turn it by finger- do not apply a lot of force just about what the belt would do. At some point the deck will open. Then you can remove the tape.

4. PRINTER TRANSPORTATION
This section describes the procedures for transporting the printer for returning after repair, etc.
1) In the service mode, press the Power button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feeder unit is raised.
2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage.
[See Caution 1 below.]
3) Turn off the printer to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the printer is turned off, the carriage is automatically locked in place.)
[See Caution 2 below.]
4) To further secure the carriage to prevent movement from the home position during transportation, make and use a fixing tool in the following procedures:
i. Fold an A4-sized paper 5 times, and wrap it twice with tape, as shown in Figure A below (to prevent the fixing tool from caught into the inside of the
printer).
ii. Insert the fixing tool between the carriage and the main case unit, and securely fix it with tape, as shown in Figures B and C below.
Note: The tape should be similar to the polyester tape used at shipment, which will not easily be torn or removed, or leave adhesive on the unit when
removed.
Leave a sufficient length of tape to fix the tool so that the tape end is easily seen even when the cover is closed, so that the user will remove the

Conon zr200 tape loading assembly will close with no tape in but will not close with tape in carriage


The tape transport mechanism cannot fully engage the tape to the head. When a tape is inserted, the tape guides have to pull the tape from the cartridge and send it towards the head. There is a sensor in the carriage that activates the transport to perform its' job. When that sensor is not enable, it will just allow the door to close and the tape guides will remain stationary. Basically, it needs to be taken apart and fixed or realigned.

How do you put video from your camcorder to your computer?


With a Canon ZR70MC camcorder, you can record video onto miniDV tape, or onto the SDmemory card in Card Camera mode.

To access video on the miniDV tape, you will use the DV cable (IEEE 1394 aka FireWire). Connecting this cable to your windows computer will allow you to transfer high quality video using the software supplied on the digital video solutions disc, or just about any other windows video editing software.

To access videos stored on the SD memory card, remove the card and place it in a card reader connected to your computer, or attach a usb cord to the camera and the computer. Video stored on the memory card is limited to 10 second clips @ 320x240 resolution.

The tape carrage wont load the tapes but it will go into the load position without.


I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick

Tape won't come out!


I had the exact same problem, and just by dumb luck, I managed to get the tape compartment to pop open after trying hundreds of things. Maybe this will work for you too...who knows??? What I did was to first remove the battery and AC power to "reset" the camera (I guess). I then put the battery back in place and WHILE HOLDING THE CAMERA IN THE UPRIGHT (AS IF USING THE CAMERA FOR VIDEO) POSITION, I pushed the "Open/Eject" latch. VIOLA!!! Like I said, it may be dumb luck, but I haven't had the problem again. It may be that gravity helped to take the stress off the ejecting mechanism...dunno???? BTW, when I was having the problem, the mechanism would "click" 3 or 4 times while trying to move the tape out. Good luck!!! I hope this helps someone!
