Same problem, same frustration. Just flashing, won't open to insert tape, Battery relatively new. Is there any way to get it to open to put in tape? I hate this technology, not along far enough.

SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

I just tried the "Fonzie" fix in my ZR300 and my camera now works - cassette compartment closes all the way now with the tape inserted. It just took one "hit" to fix the prolem. I was surprised. But ericemartin's solution is worth a try.

SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

The solution for this required sending it to Canon factory service. I was very reluctant to do this because I've heard horror stories about Canon service, but I was actually pleasantly surprised. The total cost was only about $65 and the shipping and service turn around time was amazingly fast. I was expecting weeks to go by. If memory serves me right I shipped it and received it back in less than 2 weeks.

This is a known problem with Canon and would be covered under warranty if your time hasn't run out.

Hi Everyone,

Hope this helps

My TRV68 ejected a tape half ways and stopped. I removed the power source and then the tape ejected fully upon reconnecting the battery. HOWEVER, now the tape loads and then will not stay in - the camera...


This is a common problem often caused by a problem with the head/motor assembly. This is not a DIY repair. It is possible that this can be repaired without any parts. Expect to pay in the $150 range for labor.

I have a canon MV 830.Please could you tell me when i put the cassette into the camcorder it keeps beeping then asks me to eject the cassette. Is this expensive to fix?


My MV830 would load without a cassette; but freeze, beep 3 times and eject if a cassette was inserted. I read the following thread with a great deal of scepticism and concern that I would damage my MV830 camcorder even more; but what did I have to lose? I loaded the compartment without a cassette, hit it firmly 3 times on the tape loading side and the issue was gone. It now works perfectly! Technology is fantastic...

Every time i put a tape in to play or record, it keeps ejecting it why??


Please be more specific. When you insert tape, the tape housing extract to its body, or it just stays still and eject your tape.

Hi,
The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
Thanks for using fixya.

Sony TRV120 Won't load tape C21:00 code


From the user manual ...

Under self diagnosis display
--------------------------------------------------
C21:00
Moisture condensation has occurred.
Remove the cassette and leave your camcorder for at least 1 hour to acclimatize. (p117)

On p117
-------------------------------------------------
If your camcorder is brought directly from a cold to a warm place, moisture may condense inside your camcorder, on the surface of the tape, or on the lens. In this condition, the tape may stick to the head drum and be damaged or your camcorder may not operate correctly. If there is moisture inside your camcorder, the beep sounds and the [picture of water drip] indicator flashes. When the [end tape icon] indicator flashes at the same time, the cassette is inserted in your camcorder. If moisture condenses on the lens, the indicator will not appear.

If moisture condensation occurred
None of the functions except cassette ejection will work. Eject the cassette, turn off your camcorder, and leave it for about 1 hour with the cassette compartment open. Your camcorder can be used again if the [water drip] indicator does not appear when the power is turned on again.

Note on moisture condensation
Moisture may condense when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place (or vice-versa) or when you use your camcorder in a hot place as follows:
- You bring your camcorder from a ski slope into a place warmed up by a heating device.
- You bring your camcorder from an air-conditioned car or room into a hot place outside.
- You use your camcorder after a squall or a shower.
- You use your camcorder in a high temperature and humidity place.

How to prevent moisture condensation
when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place, put your camcorder in a plastic bag and tightly seal it. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the surrounding temperature (after about 1 hour).

Canon Elura 65 Camcorder Refuses to Load Mini DV Tape


Try a different tape in case the take up isn't working in the previous tape.

Clean the tape heads with a tape cleaner in case there is buildup on the pinch rollers causing the tape to jam or slip.

If those solutions don't work, you should take it into a repair shop to have a closeup view as to what the problem is unless you see something obvious like a spring broken or loose or a bent piece or foriegn objects in the deck.

My sharp hi8 camcorder will not produce a picture unless it is in the review mode. What can I do?


The loading mechanism is not completing its cycle. That will cause the tape to be ejected as a safety feature so no damage occurs to the tape. This unit will require a "rebuild" to retime the loading mechanism.

Playback & Ejection Problem


Hi, You usually get an EJECT TAPE when the camcorder has found an internal problem and either the videocassette or the camera itself has developed a problem. In you case, it looks like you tape has a problem. Daniel
