Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When loading a cassette the compartment will only autoclose without a cassette, if I put a cassette in it will beep then reopen.
Reading other threads here the soloution that works, yes for real, slap it on the tape side (closed) a few times then try to reload the tape, if it doesn't work the first time, close it and try slaping a few more times. I had to do it a few times but it does work.

O.K. I want to apologize to everyone because I thought you were all nuts. This has happened to me before and putting it away for a year fixed it.It happened today and I was ready to throw it at the wall, so I figured why not try it. I turned it off without the tape in it and slapped it firmly three times. When I loaded the tape and turned it on it really worked. I had emailed Canon for a solution, I can't wait to tell them how I repaired there camera.THANKS ALL

I was having the same problem. I pull this camera out of the closet every Christmas. This Christmas Eve I could not get the cassette tape to load. Slapped it 5-6 times and now it loads! Thanks for the help!
