Hi,
If it is Canon camcorder then it sounds problem with tape mechanism that refuse to load/ thread tape around video head for some reason and unload it after a while.
Do you get any error sign blinking in view finder or error beep?
How old is this camcorder?
Let me know to find out if it is some operational problem or need to take in to local camera repair shop.
Thanks.

How do I load the tape


I see your picture of a cassette player. Guess you are referring to that. (tapes also come in reel-to-reel, and 8-track). Just push the "EJECT" button (power may need to be applied to some units for the eject button to work). The tape slot will open. Insert tape with exposed tape on the "head" side of the opening, usually the heads are on the bottom of the slot.. You can't put it in any other way and have the door close. The "door" that opens has guides for you to slide the tape into. The side you want to listen to should face you. Either manually close the tape compartment or push the close button (depending on model). If the door doesn't close, you put it in upside down. Push play and enjoy.

I just received the Swingline SmartTouch Stapler, but the problem is ... I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO OPEN IT TO LOAD STAPLES. It's getting rather frustrating. What's the trick?


I can solve it!!!!!!!!! Remove the clear tape at the front of the stapler...the tape you cannot see, and push from the back of the stapler! Please note on the bottom of the box......it reminds you that this stapler does not come with paper or staples!!!

I have a Sony Handy CAM 8 CCD-FX310. It will eject, but when you place a cassette in the slot and gently push it closed, the top will not retract down. it makes a slight spinning noise and then ejects...


I had the same problem with a Sony FX410, not much different than a FX310. With my camera all i had to do was to push the top down with a gentle push, it would engage and play and record normal. Don't force it hard, just a light pressure to help the cradle down. Most of these Sony cameras are crappy when it comes to loading the tape, most if not all the Sony's i've had end up with this problem, no matter what model you have. I've taken my camera competely apart and could not find the problem for not pulling down the tape, don't know if it can be a sensor or what, i never could find anything broken or loose or misalign, i oiled all the joints and moving parts with a light dab of thin oil, it worked fine except for that darn cradle not pulling down the tape.
Another thing that causes this is when the tape is to tight? In other words the tape should have a slight **** in it, i once ran into this big problem when the tape would not load and the camera kept ejecting it over and over. It was when i tried a new tape that i noticed how well it loaded yet the other tape wouldn't load. So i pulled out the tape and poked that little hole on the back right below the left hand pick up reel, i then turned the reel with my finger and gave it some slack, not much just enough to see the tape a little loose. I then reloaded the tape and it worked like a charm, seems that if the tape if to tight the camera won't accept it as the reels need to adjust back and forth for a few seconds, its that wacky sound you hear when you load a tape, seems like it has to adjust the tention inside the take up reels. Hope this might help you some?

Brake Lights do not come on. The connector located at the top back of the brake pedal becomes disengaged very often. One has to, upside down on you back, push the male and female parts back together. This...


i am assuming the lights work while connection is engaged. simple secure the two parts of the connection together even if you have to with gaffer tape.

Loading paper into a 1205-3 Victor calculator?


I just got the same calculator without a manual. Fold over one corner of the tape so it almost goes to the other edge of the paper, making a 45 degree angle. Insert the tip of the tape into the slot at the back of the calculator and push it ahead until the corner goes under the black plastic part. I had to push it ahead a little more until it was starting to come upward on the other side. Push the arrow button at the top left corner of the keypad to advance the tape.

Some recommend cleaning the heads to solve the problem. Others suggest tapping it on the side. You might check with JVC to see if there is an extended warranty.

Canon ZR85 camcorder won't turn on


Steps for removing the tape from a totally dead ZR85:
1. Turn camera upside down.
2. Move "Open/Eject" button to full right position (toward lens).
3. Manually push tape door open.
4. On the metal surface that sits between you and the tape, there is a very small screw. There is probably a yellow sticker next to the screw that says "Do not press on this part". With a small jewelry phillips screwdriver, remove that screw.
5. Push the metal plate (with tape) in the direction ofr the door and lift slightly. The metal assembly holding the tape comes loose, exposing the top of the tape.
6. Pull the tape upwards (out of the camera). At this point, the tape will still be engaged in the play heads. With the cartridge out far enough to see the heads, reach in with your jewelry screw driver and carefully lift the tape over the heads, and free from the camera.
7. Use the eraser on the end of a pencil to wind your tape back into the cartridge.
8. When re-assembling the mechanism in the camera, there are two curved slots on both sides of the piece you took loose. You'll need to thread these onto two posts inside before you place the top back in position and put the screw back in.
