Toshiba 1350 copier doesn't want to eject the paper all the way out. Copies just fine, just won't finis kicking out the paper. Make a horrible clunking noise while trying.


When hearing strange noises from a copier, alarm bells should ring. Did you check for paper jam?
Did you load correctly the paper?
switch off the machine and snitch it on later. If the problem stays please check a repair engineer.

Sony DCR-TRV145E Digital 8 camcorder - won't play or record.


Fortunately they are still making 8mm camcorders usually running less the $200 to replace. It could be more cost effective to get a new model for that price as well. I couldn't record on my Sony 8mm camcorder anymore after five years of use and over 100 tapes that I had recorded. It's plays back but that's about it.

Eject Error


Does your camera make a buzzing sound as if it trying to eject? Or if you listen carefully can you hear the very faint sound of a motor free-spinning? I have just repaired a friends camera of a very similar model to yours with the same problem. There is a tiny motor in the tape compartment which comes loose from its "pathetic" mounting. This causes the gears to disengage and in turn renders the eject mechanism useless. The motor is in the bottom left hand corner (looking in as if loading a tape) right underneath the Player, off, camera selector. The motor simply needs to be repositioned to engage the gears. I then added some glue to stop it happening again (be extremely careful though as ANY overspill of glue will ruin the camera completely).

Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital, remove the cassete message


This is a tape transport problem and is expensive to fix. Unless you know a cheap tech, it's time for a new one. Be patient loading and unloading tapes. This is usually what causes this problem. The Yellow warning sticker is REALLY important. Another important item is to always use the same brand of tape because switching tapes causes a gummy build-up the makes tapes get caught in the machine.

Eject is flashing with fast beeps. Won't eject tape or open compartment.


sad to say that the problem of your camera is the timing gear is already damage....it need to disassembly the camera to fix the timing gear....go to the qualified service center for fixing or replacing the timing gear..

Tape keeps ejecting - panasonic nvfj620


Is it only the Head cleaning cassette which keeps getting ejected, or is it happening with every tape you insert? Was the Head Cleaning Tape a little tight in the Cassette compartment? Did you have to put some pressure to push it in or did it come out with difficulty? From your symptoms, it looks like there is a gear timing problem with the cassette loading compartment gears. It could also be due to some obstruction inside. try shaking the VCR, and if you are hearing some noise, Open cover and check for foreign objects.
