My Camcoder says eject the cassette

My camcorder was working fine. But after recording , when I tried to convert to CD, I came to know that the recorded picture is striped and dotted. When I checked manual, it said head cleaning problem. I tried Panasonic head cleaning problem, but as soon as I insert the tape, it says eject the cassette.

Help me out...
I tried inserted a new tape too, it says eject the cassette..

Your help is really appreciated

Recorded scenes show as question marks

They are recorded as something that the computer does not know what to do with. You should have a cd with that camera that can convert the files. It could also be that there is a problem with the recording.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette

Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

LCD not working

my samsung mini dvd had problem with recording, the screen would go black (though menu displays come up fine).
could do play back but not record.
i put it in the sun for awhile or in a warm spot and it will record and show display. 
it is not a complete fix but worth trying (on top of the heater works good too). of course the fix doesn't seem to work when i REALLY need to record something.
also had stripes coming across screen recently on playback, gave it a good tap and the stripes went.

I can't eject cassette from my Canon MV800i

The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
Thanks for using fixya.

Thick stripes on the recording on mini dv tapes

Stripes are either caused by -
Bad tape - try a new tape
Dirty tape head - can it be cleaned? Cotton wool bud and some metho?
Electronic fault.
Try a different tape first.
If that doesn't help, clean the head. Is it under warranty?

Will not accept cassette - keeps responding "eject cassette"

Had the same problem and took the battery out of the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
