I had the same problem with my camera and tried thesolutions listed on the web like banging on the side of it, pulling out thebattery and putting it under a 60 watt bulb. I eventually sent it to a repairshop and this is what they had to say. The motor starts to wear out and turnsat a slightly slower speed than normal which will mess up the recordingprocess. The camera detects there is a problem with the motor speed and willnot allow you to put another tape into the camera since it won't be able torecord properly and protects you from wasting tapes. The fix is to replace theservo motor. It is going to cost me $127.00 to replace the motor and have itcleaned. I asked if this is a problem with just Canon Eluras in particular. Hesaid he has seen this happen with various brands of cameras. The motors justeventually wear out.

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
