Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Some GL2's exhibit the behavior that if the clock battery is dead, they will start up in VCR mode but not in camera mode. Removing the clock battery will let the camera mode start up again. I realize this is not your problem, but it occurred to me that their might be enough juice in your batteries to start up in VCR mode and thus pop your tape out. (& I thought you could file the tip about the clock battery away.)
Barring that hope, there is no way to force the eject mechanism due to the motors required to manipulate the transport.
I am afraid you need to get power to your GL2 or have it taken apart by a tech.
I hope that helps.
