Unplug it from power and disconnect the battery. Hit the reset button then wait about 15 minutes. Afterwards, you can plug it back in or connect the battery and it should be business as usual. If it shows the error code 3 times in a row, then take it to a shop.

It sounds like something has jammed the tape door mechanism preventing it from opening. This is a very delicate part of a mini DV camcorder. I would highly recommend taking it to a electronics repair shop where it can be checked out. If you try and force the tape out you will probably cause considerable damage to the tape transport system making your camcorder unusable.

Take Care,

HDR-HC1 Sony camcorder- reinsert the cassette error message


Bill,

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

try this:

  1. Open the tape door on the bottom.
  2. LEAVE IT OPEN.
  3. Power off your camcorder and remove the battery.
  4. With the battery removed, move the power switch to ON.
  5. LEAVING THE POWER ON AND THE TAPE DOOR OPEN, replace the battery.
  6. The tape should eject without damage.

Let me know.

JVC Compact Camcorder modle number GR-AXM18U


I had this same issue and it was driving me crazy. If you do not turn the camcorder on and hold the eject button, when it is trying to eject tap right in the middle of the tape (next to the eject button)  I had to do this twice before it opened but it worked. It tends to tighten the tape up and reset that error code message it is receiving internally.

Gs36 tape door doesnt open


In case anybody read this....     I have a GS-36 that would not eject the tape. I removed all the screws from the bottom and pulled the bottom plate off. Then I fidgeted with the mechanism near the eject button towards the front of the camera.  In my case it had just become stuck and needed to be gently pried open.    Tested it a bunch of times with tape - seems to be o.k.!

"Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open


I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

Error relates to water taking to long to get into machine. Check tap is open fully, water pressure is ok, hoses are not kinked. also check the small filters either end of the inlet hoses (inlet valves as well) as quite often they can clog up especialy on a new install. Regards

Tape rack stayed open


A similar thing happened to me - I took it to panasonic service centre to fix and unbelievably the problem was that the HAND STRAP was quite tight (I have small hands and set it snug) and prevented the door from openeing just another milimetre more, and thus caused the carriage to 'jam'. Loosening the hand strap and opening the door allowed the tape carriage to move properly again. This was a great relief (although I still had to replace the carriage mechanism a few months later.....due to reset button message)
