Question about Canon MV800i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The tape does no load into the camera. It beeps and rejct it.
I READ THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLKEM THIS MORNING ONTHIS WEBSITE, BUT I CAN NO LONGER FIND IT.
THE SOLUTION SUGGESTED DROPPING THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETED FLOOR FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AS A FIX.
THERE WAS ALSO A POSTING FROM A GUY WHO HAD FOLLOWED THIS ADVICE AND IT FIXED HIS CAMERA.
SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW SUIT AND I DROPPED THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETTED FLOORT FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AND WHEN I TRIED IT WITH THE TAPE IT WORKED, NO JOKE, THIS IS AN HONEST AND TRUTHFUL REPORT.

I just bought this camera 2nd hand, got some tapes for it and put 1 in and didn't close, so I done what was said. A bit iffy bout dropping it from 50cm so I done 30cm and didn't work. So I done 50cm by dropping it on its battery put the tape in and it closed with tape in. I cant believe it worked. thank you

I tried, not the dropping of the camera but some hard claps on the shell and it works again! You don't believe it. Me neither. Had nothing to loose so did it anyhow.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WENT ON FOR MONTHS
I OPENED UP THE CASSETTE LOADER AND WITH A SMALL ELECTRIC SHAVER BRUSH I CLEANED ALL THE INSIDE AND THE RIBBON CABLES CONTACTS AND TO MY SURPRISE
THE CAMERA IS NOW OPERATING HOPE IT CURES YOUR PROBLEM

SOURCE: tape not loading
Chances are it is in need of a major cleaning. Usually by the time this happens the cleaning tape will do no good. A good internal cleaning is usually the only thing that will help it........Has it been droped? If it has then you could need repairs
