Cassettes not rewinding

When trying to rewind, it goes for about 1 second and then stops, with error logo displaying in the viewfinder, to eject the cassette. I eject and try again and the same happens again. This will happen with all cassettes. Fowarding and playing is no problem at all. Review is also a problem.

Thanks

    I have a similar problem. When I try to rewind the tape it makes some noise and the error comes up to "Press Reset Button". I'm not sure if the fast forward and play are actually working as I need to rewind first to double check them. However, they do seem to work.

    Vintage Sony No Cd, just cassettes. Works on Rew and Fwd, but, clicks off when "play" is pressed. What could cause that?

The heads could also just need a good cleaning, either professionally or using a head cleaner dv tape. It's important to remember to always use the same manufacturer dv tape all the time. Evidently, Sony and Panasonic do not mix well, and the lubricants from those two tapes combined will gum up the works. If you use Sony dv's, always use a Sony head cleaner and vice versa. Cold can also cause those lubricants to gum up. Sometimes simply fast forwarding will loosen things up.

Defective rewind sensor. You need
professional service to
fix it. I suggest you buy a rewinder-forwarder than sending it to the service center, it is more practical and you are prolonging the life span of your camcorder video head ( rewinding and forwarding eats around 40 % of vhead life span.)

After the tape rewinds and then I push the eject button, the tape doesn't rewind back into the cassette before ejecting.


This should also be happening when you just eject the cassette without rewinding.

Best guess is a belt needs to be replaced.

Cassette is stuck. Cannot eject


Sounds like the tape is dragging and the spindle wont release it because of the torque on it. Can you rewind or fast forward to see if it releases?

The problem is in the idler assembly inside the machine, some use rubber that dry out and crack, or there is a spring loaded double clutch wheels that get weak over time. In order to fix this the idler assembly must be replaced.

I was rewinding a tape and the VCR just stopped. When I hit either play or rewind the VCR makes a kind of whine or grinding sound and then the following message appears in the display: 3L 22 AA. What...


Have you tried ejecting the tape?

If the cassette will not eject, the tape is probably fouled on the capstans and will need to be "surgically" removed, VERY CAREFULLY from the machine.

MX2, it displays the following: "remove the cassette" or eject. I thought it was a condensation problem but all attempts failed, please help me.


On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.
