Question about Samsung SC-D353 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Tape keeps ejecting when you try to load.

I understand from what I've read, that the problem lies in the mechanism. Where exactly in the mechanism is it going wrong. What causes this?

Try with another tape maybe you got a tape with the protection tab,or your camera got condensation,in that case you have to leave your camera in a plastic bag for an hour,and see what happen.

Blinking red light on panel keeps ejecting tape


There seems to be problem with the ejecting mechanism of your device. It is not properly closing. Try opening the device and clean the ejecting mechanism and load tray. If the problem persists, get repaired at the authorized service center.

VCR EJECT FAILURE


When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) and try loading and unloading a tape. Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. When it "catches" as you say, try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting. Gravity and the weight of the tape is why you may not have this problem during the load sequence.

I have a Mitsubishi U57 VCR. Works well but have a tape stuck in it. Any suggestions on how to get it out?


Unplug the vcr for 30 seconds, sometimes the tape will eject, failing that ! remove the top cover of the vcr "2 to 6" screws. Now! if the tape is spewed in the mechanical parts and wrapped around the video ahead, get a pair of scissors and carefully cut away the tape and remove any particles, next hit the eject this should remove the cassette without difficulty. If all this fails the problem lies in the vcr itself, a bad idler assembly, broken drive belt, or loading basket problem which will require a technician.

Cannot load tape. keeps ejecting tape when trying to load.


Remove the top cover from the VCR. If you have children in the house, look for any object lying in the mechanism. If this is clear, insert a tape slowly into the carriage & watch carefully if the cassette tape flap raises up & allows the tape to be lowered down into the mechanism, if not the flap lever at the side of the carriage may be broken. If the tape does lower into position, look to see if the tape is being pulled out by the guide arms, (normally 2 white poles) one of these may be broken. Check the half loading arm is also not obstructing the tape. If any of these parts are broken a new deck mechanism would be required.

My sharp hi8 camcorder will not produce a picture unless it is in the review mode. What can I do?


The loading mechanism is not completing its cycle. That will cause the tape to be ejected as a safety feature so no damage occurs to the tape. This unit will require a "rebuild" to retime the loading mechanism.

Hopefully, you won't find any spilled tape in the unit.
Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear or gear with missing teeth.
Let me know what you find out and we'll go from there.

Good Luck, Jim

Is it having trouble either loading or ejecting the tape? If so, then something is probably awry in that mechanism. Take the top cover off and watch a load or eject operation. If tape isn't fully loaded, and tape threaded, then an error condition will result, as will be the case if it won't eject. Causes include a broken piece of the load mechanism (also called cassette carriage or carriage mechanism), broken or cracked gear. If the mechanism is gear driven, timing is critical, just being out of time one tooth will foul things up. There are often marks on the gears which must line up exactly in a particular mode as specified in manufacturer service literature. Most VCRs since the early '90s are disposeable, very prone to breakage, in contrast to early units which were made like tanks, costing $400 plus.

Tape won't load


Was having a similar problem but the tape would not even partially load. Spent several hours, over the course of several days trying to figure how to fix this and found the following solution to a similar problem on this site. I tried it as a last resort...it worked! Now I just need to figure out what to tell my wife when she asks me "how" I fixed the camera???? Here is what I did...I allowed the mechanism to close without a tape inserted (the only way it WOULD close), gave it a solid - but gentle - whack on the tape side of the camcorder with the palm of my hand...sort of like burping a baby. I said a little prayer to the saint of hopeless causes (St. Jude Thaddeus)...slid the open/eject button, opened the door, slid a tape in, gently pushed it down (where it says "push") and ...the mechanism closed!!! Not sure if the "fix" will last but we'll see and report back if the problem crops up again.
