Check for debris in the aperture. Check for anything sticking onto the cassette. Has anything fallen inside, any fluff, paper? Anything hanging off, any screws or fixtures loose?

SOURCE: Cannon ZR 60 camcoder Cassette copartment does not open

Loading unit problem is a common mechanical problem in camcorders. To remedy the problem, trained tech need to disassemble the mechanical system around the loading and replace few broken gears (plastics) and adjust it. Repair cost may run close to half of the new camcorder. If you really got to repair this camera for some sentimental reason or for special needs otherwise better to invest the repair charge into a new camcorder.

SOURCE: gears not changing quickly enough.

Two things to this problem.
1. Clean your drivetrain REALLY, REALLY thoroughly with a good degreaser and a bristled brush. All of it. Clean the derailleurs, the chain, the cables. Once it is all cleaned up and dried off, lubricate the chain and the cables ONLY.
2. Shift your bike into the highest gear and release the cable. Pull it taut and re-tighten it. Flip it over and shift into your middle cassette cog while cranking the pedals. Use the barrel adjuster on your rear shifter to get the jockey wheel on the cassette aligned over the correct cog.
This was an abridged guide to rear derailleur adjustment because it sounds like it was more grunge in the cable or derailleur than anything else, but i'll check back and if this solution doesn't work out, i'll give you tips on a far more thorough overhaul. Just remember a clean drivetrain is a functional drivetrain, and the cables and chain are the only thing you are supposed to lube.

Hope this helps,
matt

SOURCE: Put tape in cassette compartment push it closed -

I am having this same problem and I did a test. There appears to be some type of light sensor that fits in the tape when you try to close it. When there is no tape the loading mechanisim will work. If you put in a tape it covers the sensor and will reject the tape. I used a clear straw and covered the sensor and it closed. I then blocked the ligh from coming in the straw and covered the sensor and it ejected the same as having the tape in. Does anyone know where I get get this part?

VHS stuck in Orion tv how do I get it out


https://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=73308

Besides trying the upside down approach, try Sharon's tip at the very bottom of the link.

Quoting:

"I just had a tape stuck in a VCR/TV combo so went on the Internet for help and all other answers were to take the top off the VCR which of course is not possible with a tv combo.

While stuck the the power would turn on it would just emit a low moan-whining noise for a few seconds starting strong then running down and then power off. Couldn't watch TV in that state, it would automatically power off.

So I got down comfortable on the floor eye level with the input slot with the flapping door cover and pressed the power button then quickly with my fingers of one hand inserted them in the tape load slot and using my middle fingers continously began pushing up on the top edge of the cassette in a stiff but quick flicking motion over and over again (like trying to physically force the tape up with intermittent prodding short and quick strokes so it could clear the lip if the eject mechanism kicked in) while simultaneously pressing and holding the eject button with my other hand and after a few tries and 5 or six upward prods on the front top edge of the cassette the eject mechanism activated and spit out the tape.

How do I reset a Cannon Powershot sd1400is if it doesn't turn on?


Try taking the battery out and wait a few seconds and then put it back in.....make sure the battery is full. and Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.

Thanks,
Satya

Cassette Jam


The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
