Question about Video Cameras
I was wondering if you knew what it meant when the camcorder does not want to load the Mini DV tape. Everytime I insert the tape and push it so it loads, it automatically spits it out. Do you know if there is a way out of it or if it is fixable??
Thank you soo much,
Usually when a device (or any device for that matter) spits a tape out, it usually means the tape isn't sitting properly inside. There could by some obstruction preventing the tape from going in properly. Check to see the tape is in it's regular form...it hasn't changed shape dramatically. Make sure no foreign objects (sticker...lint) are on the surface of the tape (on all sides) and inside the camcorder. Maybe the tape isn't being inserted properly (try inserting at proper angle) and do it gently. If it still doesn't work, it could be that the tape has malfunctioned or in the worst case scenerio, the camcorder loading mechanism has malfunctioned (meaning it needs to be serviced).

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
