SOURCE: Canon mv800i fault

OK after searching the net to fix this problem and no one having the answer I decided to fix it my self.
My Canon MV 800i cam had the same fault to I took it to bits. Inside there’s the cams main board that has loads of ribbon cable connecting on to it from its bits like lens, power supply, viewfinder , cassette deek. I unplugged all of these and removed its main board and cleaned all the ribbon cables connecting end with isopropyl alcohol, you can use most electrical cleaners should do the some trick. Then just reassembled the cam and tested all fixed
Give that a go and see how you get on

SOURCE: Cassette removal from dead Canon MV650 Camcorder

I just solved my own problem by disassembling the camcorder until I had access to the little motor which operates the eject mechanism. It sits on the corner of the mechanics subassembly, close to the cassette. By applying about 3.5 Volts DC from a regulated power supply to the two motor contacts, it started to operate (test which direction it needs to go by trying both polarities) and lifted the cassette out of the play position and ejected it. Only since the tape was still wound around the drum, I had to use a thin tool to turn the cassette hub in order to tighten the tape a bit. Then the protective cover of the cassette closed and I could slide the cassette out of the slot by hand. Bingo!

SOURCE: Color ink cassette stuck in canon selphy

I doubt very much that you need to reset the printer, or, even if you did, that this would make much difference. It sounds as if there is a menu item which you should be able to bring up on the display which then allows you to release and extract the cartridge. I have scoured the web for information on this one and Canon, naturally, only supply the software, not the manual. If you have a manual can you look up and quote the relevant bit in it which deals with changing the cartridge? If there is nothing there which says that you have to go to a menu item to release it then it sounds like a mechanical problem - as in 'needs a bit of a yank'. I'll keep looking.

SOURCE: Canon ZR-800 Mini DV Camcorder tape stuck

The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape and finally eject. However, the tape is usually pulled or stretched and I use a small flat head screwdriver to wind the tape back in, but expect that portion of the video to be ruined.

My heads on the xm1 seem to be dirty, ive used a sony cleaning tape, it only makes a difference for an hr or two taping, any sugestions


Hi there,

Firstly, I must explain how the MiniDV system works:

Although this may sound illogical, MiniDV camcorder heads do actually use a type of lubrication cassette system and there are 2 types:

- DRY lubrication (Canon, Panasonic, JVC etc)
- WET lubrication (Sony)

Now, if you haven't noticed already from the above 2 types, you are in fact using the WRONG type of cassette on your camcorder.

Although Sony cassettes are often readily available (and often perceived to be the best quality), by using Sony cassettes on a Canon camcorder (or Pana, JVC for that matter), you are in fact causing premature wear on the heads. So, the condition you are describing as 'dirty' heads, is in fact caused by the use of the wrong (wet type) cassettes on your DRY type camcorder.

Using "WET" type cassettes on a DRY system camcorder, can often leave residue on your heads, or worse....cause wear. The same principle applies to Sony camcorders - use only Sony 'WET' type cassettes, not Dry cassettes.

This also applies when using HEAD CLEANER cassettes - as indicated, you have used a Sony Head Cleaner cassette (this is a WET type cassette), when in fact, you should be using a DRY HEAD CLEANER cassette (Pana, Canon etc).

CAUTION: when using a head cleaner cassette, only playback the cassette for no more than 6 sec's at a time (anymore will damage the heads).

Summary:

For your Canon camcorder, use only DRY MiniDV cassettes (Pana offer cassettes from Studio, Professional to Master Quality), including DRY Head Cleaner cassette. This should improve the playback quality from your camcorder.

Problem with reel, could be your cassette causes the problem.In case your cassette stuck, eject the cassette by applying power on it and keep cassette door open for 5 sec or more until cassette ejected, then use other cassette. Otherwise have it check by the expert. Good Luck

The cassette is stuck and the player will not eject it. when you turn it on it just makes a beeping noise.


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.

IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.

Problem with loading cassette


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Cassette am


To unload the videocassette from the cassette compartment, the camcorder needs to be connected to a power source (either an electrical outlet or a charged battery). Please refer to the following instructions. Connect the camcorder to the power source or insert the fully charged battery pack, and then slide the EJECT switch to open the cassette compartment cover. The cassette compartment cover will open, and then the compartment will open automatically.
