SOURCE: not ejecting

DRUM FG
In the case there is no DRUM FG input in the
drum rotation mode for 4 seconds or more. This
error is defined as [E04], and the mechanism
mode is shifted to STOP with the pinch roller
set off.
1. The drum cannot be started or drum rotation is stopped
because tape transport load is too high.
1) Tape tension is extremely high.
2) The tape is damaged or soiled with grease, etc.
2. The DRUM FG signal is not received by the syscon
CPU.
1) Disconnection in the middle of the signal line.
2) Failure of the DRUM FG pulse generator (hall element).
3. No drum control voltage is supplied to the MDA.
4. No power is supplied to the DRUM MDA

SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

hmmm...the only reason that usually happens is when the tape is messed up internally, or there is something stuck in amongst the head

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 camcorder is stuck in safe mode


I need to know more details about your problem, error code follows numeric code. Such as 01, 02, 03 etc. you need to consult an expert. Don't force the mechanism for it will cost you more to repair.

Have a jvc camcorder turn on and it says safe mode remove battery


Forget the battery, the mini dv carrage assy can get out of sync and initiate the safe mode, if you noticed a problem loading the tape or have heard a gear skip sound thats the problem. The best you can do with those camcorders is keep the tape in the camcorder!!!!! That will prevent the problem and insure many good years of recording.

Sorry,

Tim.

I think youre talking about safeguard mode.

Here is the manual if you don't have one:

http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/LYT1354-001A.pdf

See page 51. There should be an error indication number as well.
