My cannon mv730i wont play any images on the screen or the view finder when i playback the tape when i record it has picture on both i used it only a week ago and was fine.


This is usually caused by an oxidized 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.


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.

My handycam will eject properly and close properly with no tape. When I put a tape in and close it, it wont **** in, and makes a click..click..click sound for about 15 seconds then ejects the tape, but...


I'm no authority on this model but when I did something like this on my Canon GL 2 I had the tape in the opposite way and it came up to the stops and clicked. All I did to make it work was turn the tape around and I was good to go. Your camera is doing the same thing and the tape is just coming to the stop. If you don't correct it my camera went into a sleep mode some may even shut right off.

Won't except tape


I have a ZR100 that did the same nearly the same thing - but it was only beeping twice. I followed the advice another thread suggested - I banged it twice on the opposite side from the door but it didn't fix it. Then I banged it twice on the side with the tape door.... and now all is well!

I couldn't believe that "fixed" it. Like banging the ol' tube color TV on the side to fix the picture. Maybe it is short lived, but if it holds for the rest of this year until the camcorder Christmas sales begin, I'll be happy!

Tape goes in but comes right back out.


If you can get a head cleaner in the machine during one of those tries, run it for 10 seconds and try a tape. If you know how to take the door off and how to clean a machine with head cleaner, I think this will solve your problem. Always use the same brand of tape. Each company has their own lubricant and mixing tapes will gumm up the insides and cause tapes eject problems.

Tape wouldn't eject, now power unavailable.


open it. find the motor that activates the tape door. turn it by hand until tape is fully exposed to be removed.

Tape door wont close


I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks

Will not accept any tape


i bought this camara from someone with the same problem for 5 bucks at a yard sale. an easy fix. 1. blow the dust out 2. charge the battery. 3. put the tape in and when it gos down into the case close the door and turn it on, run tape on ff then rr then turn camara to record. if it says to eject tape at any time, eject it and do it again. it worked for me.
