On another forum here, the suggestion was that you wrap on the screen side of the camera with your knuckles. This method absolutely has proven to work on three ZR100's I have for the school I work at.

Try it yourself and see.

Tape will not eject / Battery full

while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.

Usually a chime happens when you open the plastic cover just before it opens. If you plug it into the electrical outlet does it eject that way?
