SOURCE: Message reads eject. won't eject
My camera did the exact same thing. I called Canon tech support and they advised to unplug power cord, remove large main battery, and remove smallbackup battery. The small back up battery is under a small door under the main backup battery. With everything disconnected, turn camera to "camera" and then to "vcr" and then to off. Wait a few seconds. Put everything back together and try to eject again. The tech said that resets all the mechanical parts. However, it did not work for me. They now want me to send it to them for a paid repair. I have done some research on the internet and this is a VERY commom problem and it usually costs about $150 to correct via Cannon. Many times the problem occurs again. I am very very frustrated. I pulled my camera out last night to get it ready as my wife is 9months into her pregnancy. Now, I have to send my camera away for 5-9 days. Really really upset.

SOURCE: remove cassette
Try inserting a cleaning cassette. There may be something on you video heads and your camera is protecting itself from damage. If it wont let you play the cleaning cassette consider using some compressed air via a can of "blow-off" or similiar product. If that doesn't change anything send it in for repair.

The "remove cassette" problem on Canon DV cameras is a general fault error that can be induced by many varied problems from faulty dew sensors to jammed mechanisms. These mechanisms are small and delicate and it does not take much to stop them working. If the head drum is starting the next thing that should happen is the capstan spins which in turn drives the take-up spools when the cassette loads. Tape tension problems (other than a broken tape) would not be detected until after the capstan is running. With the battery removed and the cassette door open, CAREFULLY attempt to rotate the capstan spindle. I use a small rubber insulating sleeve stretched over a small screwdriver. If this does not solve the problem then other possibilities are that the printed ribbon cable from the cassette mechanism to the camera needs re-seating or perhaps the capstan drive motor is faulty. However, try and look for the obvious first. To investigate further by dismantling is extremely difficult and I would not recommend it unless you want to risk writing-off your camera completely. I have done this operation (successfully) as a last resort and found that re-seating the printed cable in its socket solved the problem, however, I would not recommend or suggest this decision be entered into lightly. Its a good feeling when you get it working again but sickening when you have to allocate it to the re-cycle bin. As I say, this fault indication has many causes. Getting it serviced by Canon is not an option as the cost would exceed its value so unless you can find a local repairer that's prepared to look at it, then you have very few options.
