Hi, When you say you're "using a tape for a while", can you define "while"? The thing about these little cameras is that they don't like to re-use DV tapes. If you are recording over tapes that have previously been recorded on, then your camera could be fussy about that. You can clean the heads, but if the tape is dirty, then it will transfer that dirt back to the heads and youp;ll end up in the same position. The problem is, that the heads will wear out if you clean them to often. In the long run, it's best to use new, clean tapes. And when you are using the tape cleaner, make sure you are following the directions very carefully. NewMediaMan

I am not the person who made any suggestion to you. I happened to see your post when reading on this site.

When this type of problem ocures in any of the camcorders, this means that there is usually a mechanical fault with the loader mechanism. Another cause can be that there is a sensor fault with either a tape position sensor, or with the electronics that operates with the sensors, and the tape loader mechanism. If there is a servo fault the loader will also be commanded by the uPC to eject the tape.

Because of the way the camcorder is constructed and its sophistication, this is not something you can fix yourself. The electronics are mostly all SMD technology, and the mechanical parts are very fine as like in a mechanical wrist watch.

I would suggest that you get in touch with the manufacture service rep to arrange to have an estimate for repair. The service cost is not cheap for these types of devices. The work is time consuming and the replacement parts can be expensive. Get an estimate for service before making any decisions.

You may find that servicing your unit when it is out of warranty may not be worth the cost. If your unit is more than a few years old, you must consider that it may pay to get a new unit.

SOURCE: my canon camcorder drive for tapes rejects tapes

I had the same problem. Checked the site and found a solution of dropping the camera onto a carpeted floor from about 1/2m to 1m. Thought that it was bullsh1t but was desperate and so tried it. worked a treat!!!

Hope this helps.

Canon elura 90: won't load tapes


Make sure the power is on this unit and you are pluged into a good source of power. The disk tray needs power to lower. A lot of tapes get loose in there case and need to be fast forwarded and then rewound completely in order to help spool them properly in their case. And what you are experiencing sounds a lot like this. It is also possible that you need to buy a head cleaning unit for your elura and run it in the camera for 10 secs and then try again. (Did you try this with a New tape? or just used ones?) We bought a small tape rewinding unit for around 39 dollars that helps us to rewind the mini DV tapes without adding wear and tear on our camera and it seems to help with the issue of loose tapes in the camera getting rejected as they won't wrap around the tape head as nice.

Condensation Detected ......... Remove the Cassette


People, I got the same problem like 5 minutes ago, but I fixed it. You have to REMOVE the battery while the camera is off, then wait 2 seconds and take it back inside. It works.

But I have an Canon Xm1, so I don`t know if it works for all of you guys, but good luck!!
