Question about Canon ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camcorder closes ok with no tape, but when I put in a tape
it closes momentarily, I hear things whirling, but then it opens
to reject the tape after only about 4 seconds.
What do you think is wrong?
The head needs aligned.. the cassette compartment is out of balence

This is a common problem with the Canon mini DV camcorders. You need to reseat the connectors inside the unit, and this MIGHT work. Take the battery out. Close the LCD and hold the unit with your non-dominant hand so the LCD is in your palm and the opposite side is up. Give the unit a good thwack with your dominant hand. Put the battery back and check to see if it worked. If not, try one more time. But don't keep whacking it.......
