Question about Samsung SC-L300 8mm Analog Camcorder
When I load a tape, the unit closes and acts like it is going to start playing but then it immediately ejects. No matter what I do; pressing play or rewind, helps. It will not respond to any commands and just pops the tape back out. I have 15 years of tapes I am dying to watch with my family and am FRUSTRATED!
SOURCE: Tape Won't Load
something is blocking the mechanism and not letting it load or the mode switch is bad and the mechanism dosent know where it is. These camcorders are common for this type of problem and these days Im sorry to say that most places charge an arm and a leg just to look at them. good Luck

look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt

sir if your camcorder is new then it has a warranty. we should send it first for their service because they have a spare parts for replacement and info. if your going to fix it by yourself then the warranty of that will be void. by the way the place for the service center for camcorder samsung in the philippines is in makati i think. i got a problem with my samsung just like your model and they told me that it is located at makati. hope that helps!

I believe your problem is in the drum motor assembly part No is AD97-10579A. Samsung they know that problem it require a Technician to replace this part because you must adjust electronic and sometime mechnism as well. Depend which country you are it might cover under warranty even your CAM is out of warranty just check with Samsung in your area
