Question about Canon Elura 40MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I haven't used my Canon Elua 40mc in a while but pruchased two new batteries for a recent trip. When I tried to use the camcorder it would go through the normal set up mode then display a "REMOVE CASSETTE" notice. I then would open the cover but the cassette would not eject. You could see the unit try to open the port holding the cassette but then stop. It seem like it wouldn't go through the entire process. I've tried this several times and after maybe 20 attempts it would open completely where I could remove the cassette. I would check it and place it back in the slot and it would close. I then would close the cover and try to use the camcorder but it would again display the same notice. Can anyone please help me?
You are not alone. This is a known service problem for this series of cameras. Cannon has a service notice on its website. Look here:
