Question about Canon MV600i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I cannotinsert a tape into the tape comparment. It is currently empty. I open the plastic pannel and the mechanism starts to move the tape deck to the loading position. But the tape deck never opens and then just goes back inside. Is there a solution to this? Regards Chris

Loading unit problem is a common mechanical problem in camcorders. To remedy the problem, trained tech need to disassemble the mechanical system around the loading and replace few broken gears (plastics) and adjust it. Repair cost may run close to half of the new camcorder. If you really got to repair this camera for some sentimental reason or for special needs otherwise better to invest the repair charge into a new camcorder.

ok so my tape inside broke and i spent some time tinkering around with it.
step 1: take the extremely small screw out from the top. VERY SMAL!!! hehe
step 2: with some strength behind it, try to slide the cover that the screw held on off the top and thatlets the cassette tray come out...
now when i put a new cassette in, it will close, but will eject it after it thinks if it will accept the tape or not... i think its just being retarded... tried the tapping thing - didnt work... im thinking of dropping it out the second floor and trying afterwards...

I found a temporary solution for this problem. When the tray with the cassette tape comes out remove the battery so that the tray will not go inside again. Now on top of the tray it will be written as "PRESS" just adjucent to it you can see a spring connected to the tray just press the string down wards and the tray opens and you can replace the battery. Hope this can help.

SOURCE: Cassette won't eject!
I have had this problem too. I got it to open by pressing my hand against the tape mechanism then slightly closing the lid and re-opening it. This doesn't always work the first time.Once it is open run a tape head cleaner and it should fix it for a while.
