Question about Cameras
First of all check out is the battery old or new. if its old then this problems happens. so replace the battery. but if the battery is new. then check out is it properly charged or not. if not charged then this problem happens. charge the battery properly and then try.if the battery is new and also properly charged still the same problem then. remove the battery from the camera. wait for 2 minutes. then press the ON button and then insert the battery and then check out.if still the same problem then.keep the camera ON and then press the eject button randomly 10 to 15 times non-stop.then check out.if still the same problem then. keep the camera ON and pat the sides of the camera with your hand on its sides. also hold the camera tightly and wiggle/shake it then try to eject the tape.if still the same problem. then it’s the problem of internal gear assembly inside the unit. the gears which moves the tape IN/OUT are worn out and due to this when you press the eject button some noise comes but the gears are completely worn out so its not ejecting the tape. if the gears are worn out then the gear assembly can be replaced by a local electronics repair center who deals in camera repairing.the cost can be near to $15 for gears assembly plus the service charge of the store mechanic. in many cases it has been noticed that due to some dust/rust the door tray which ejects the tape gets jammed/blocked so inserting a thin knife in the sides of the door tray and pressing the eject button releases the tape also trying to pull the tray back slightly helps in removing the tape. but if the door tray is hardly jammed then don’t force as it can crack/break the camera components internally and lead to major damage inside.
