    I just had the same problem. I turned the camera on and off for a while then thumped it at various points around the body then tried putting the tape back in and this time it took it.

    Since I started getting the error message right after watching the tape I don't know how long this will last.

I put in my mini dv cassette and automatically pops it back out, and the screen displays remove the cassette .... Why

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
