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

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.
